Bruce Springsteen – Blinded By The Light lyrics

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 a hot spot
Snappin’ his fingers, clappin’ his hands
And some fleshpot, mascot was tied into a lovers 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
Oh, 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, anticyclone
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
Oh, 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
It 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

Asked him which was the way back home
He said “Take a right at the light”
“Keep going 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 complaining 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
Whoa, but, mama that's where the fun is

Woo, yeah
(I was blinded)
Oh, mama, oh, mama, oh mama
(I was blinded)
Oh, mama, oh, mama
(I was blinded)
I was blinded
(I was blinded)
I was blinded
(I was blinded)
I was blinded
(I was blinded)
I was blinded
(I was blinded)
I was blinded
(I was blinded)
I was blinded
