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
 
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
Feeling kinda older, I tripped the merry-go-round
With this very unpleasing, sneezing and wheezing
The calliope crashed to the ground
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
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 go 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 checking out the 
Weather chart to 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
 
But 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 tired
She's gonna make it through the night
She's gonna make it through the night
 
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 eye's 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 it's funny bone
That's where they expect it least"
And some new-mown chaperon was standing in the corner
Watching the young girls dance
And some fresh-sown moonstone was messing 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
