Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce bag,
another runner in the night

Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner (fade out) in the night

Madman drummers bummers,
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 unpleasin',
sneezin' and wheezin,
the calliope crashed to the ground
The calliope crashed to the ground

Well she was...
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

Some silicone sister
with a manager mister
told me I got what it takes
She said
"I'll turn you on sonny to something strong,
play the song with the funky break"
And go-cart Mozart
was checkin' out the weather chart
see if it was safe outside
And little Early-Pearly
came by in his curly-wurly
and asked me if I needed a ride
Asked me if I needed a ride

Well she was...
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the light

She got down but she never got tight
She's gonna make it through the night
She's gonna make it through the night

------ guitar solo ------

But mama, that's where the fun is
But mama, that's where the fun is
Mama always told me not to look into the eyes of the sun
But mama, that's where the fun is

Some brimstone baritone
anticyclone
rolling stone
preacher from the east
Says, "Dethrone the dictaphone,
hit it in its funny bone,
and that's where they expect it least"
And some new-mown chaperone
was standin' in the corner,
watching the young girls dance
And some fresh-sown moonstone
was messin' with his frozen zone,
reminding him of romance
The calliope crashed to the ground

But she was...
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

{the following two sections are sung simultaneously}

1)
Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

Blinded by the light,
revved up like a deuce,
another runner in the night

Blinded by the light,

~ Blinded by the light

2) ~ Madman drummers bummers,
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 unpleasin',
sneezin' and wheezin,
the calliope crashed to the ground
~ Now Scott with a slingshot
finally found a tender spot
and throws his lover in the sand
~ And some bloodshot forget-me-not
said daddy's within earshot
save the buckshot, turn up the band
runner in the night
~ Some silicone sister
with a manager mister
told me I go what it takes
~ She said "I'll turn you on sonny to something strong"

She got down she never 'eally thought..
She's gonna make it through the night
