Blinded By The Light Lyrics - Bruce Springsteen

Review The Song (7)



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
I was blinded
I was blinded

Better Version | Reviewer: Christopher | 5/29/2008

I think Springsteen's version of Blinded By the Light is the best. This might be the first version that I heard, but I think it's better for other reasons. I like Springsteen's version because he wrote it about his experiences and people that he came across in Asbury Park. Listening to the song I get the feeling of where the song is coming from and I like the feel to it. I could almost picture myself there listening to Springsteen and the band. I also like how Springsteen says "cut loose like a deuce," in the song, rather than "revved up like a deuce," in the Manfred Mann version. Don't get me wrong, Manfred Mann's version is good. It is different and the most popular. But I prefer Bruce Springsteen's.



what??? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/31/2007

From reading these comments I dont think any1 has heard Bruce Springsteen's version of this song. He sings it nothing like it's ever been sung, and the lyrics are significantly different, esp in the 2nd half of the song. He never sings a line with deuce or douche wrapped up in anything.



Douche or Duece? Springsteen or Other? | Reviewer: Cal | 7/21/2007

Like daniel said steve miller band and blue oyster cult are great but they just dont make it great. and i always thought it was douche so i looked and it is cut loose like a duece another runner in the night. thanks



difference in opinion | Reviewer: Daniel | 5/22/2006

Steve Miller Band takes away from the real meaning of this song and they need to play the originals more. Great song.



finally | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/8/2006

the manfred man version of this (that is always on the classic rock station) does this song no justice at all.this original springsteen version is by far the best, and it is also the version that van morrison plays when he covers it live.



Also confused | Reviewer: Amanda | 2/12/2006

I totally thought that it said wrapped up like a douche also...so I had to find out if thats what it really said and I see that it doesn't. Even though its a lot funnier thinking it says wrapped up like a douche.



so glad to finally know what this says | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/24/2005

For years I was sure that this song was not talking about a douche, but it sure sounded like it. Now I know it's duece and not douche! Thanks!
