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
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 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
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'll 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 and figured he'd be alright

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
Ooh yeah
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

    General Commentblinded buy the light cut loose like a douche in the middle of the night

    And little Early-Pearly came in by her curly-wurly
    and little girly - pearly gave my anus squirly-whirlly
