Bruce Springsteen - Blinded by the Light


Blinded by the Light

Madman drummers bummers
and Indians in the summer
with a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps
as the adolescent pumps
his way into his hat
With a boulder on my shoulder
feelin' kinda older
I tripped the merry-go-round
With this very unpleasing
sneezing and wheezing
the calliope crashed to the ground
Some all-hot half-shot
was headin' for the hot spot
snappin' his fingers clappin' his hands
And some fleshpot mascot
was tied into a lover's knot
with a whatnot in her hand
And now young Scott with a slingshot
finally found a tender spot
and throws his lover in the sand
And some bloodshot forget-me-not
whispers "Daddy's within earshot
save the buckshot, turn up the band"
And she was blinded by the light
cut loose like a deuce
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
She got down but she never got tight
but she'll make it alright
Some brimstone baritone
anti-cyclone rolling stone
preacher from the East
He says, "Dethrone the dictaphone
hit it in its funny bone
that's where they expect it least"
And some new-mown chaperone
was standin' in the corner all alone
watchin' the young girls dance
And some fresh-sown moonstone
was messin' with his frozen zone
to remind him of the feeling of romance
Yeah, he was blinded by the light
Cut loose like a deuce
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
He got down but he never got tight
but he's gonna make it tonight
Some silicone sister
with her manager's mister
told me I got what it takes
She said, "I'll turn you on, sonny
to something strong
if you play that song with the funky break"
And Go-Cart Mozart
was checkin' out the weather chart
to see if it was safe to go outside
And little Early-Pearly
came by in her curly-wurly
and asked me if I needed a ride
Oh, some hazard from Harvard
was skunked on beer
playin' backyard bombardier
Yes, and Scotland Yard was trying hard
they sent some dude with a calling card
he said, "Do what you like, but don't do it here"
Well, I jumped up, turned around
spit in the air, fell on the ground
and asked him which was the way back home
He said, "Take a right at the light
keep goin' straight until night
and then, boy, you're on your own"
And now in Zanzibar, a shootin' star
was ridin' in a side car
hummin' a lunar tune
Yes, and the avatar said, "Blow the bar
but first remove the cookie jar
we're gonna teach those boys to laugh too soon"
And some kidnapped handicap
was complainin' that he caught the clap
from some mousetrap he bought last night
Well, I unsnapped his skull cap
and between his ears I saw a gap
but figured he'd be all right
He was just blinded by the light
Cut loose like a deuce
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun
Oh, but Mama, that's where the fun is
I was blinded (repeat and fade out)
