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 lover's knot with a whatnot in her hand
And now young Scott with a slingshot finally found the 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 all right

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 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-kart 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
Asked him which was the way back home
He said, "Take a right at the light, keep goin' straight until night
And then, boys, you're on your own"

And now in Zanzibar a shootin' star was ridin' in a sidecar 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 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
Ooh, yeah

(I was blinded) Whoa, but, Mama, whoa, but, Mama
(I was blinded) Whoa, but, Mama
(I was blinded) I was blinded by the light
(I was blinded) I was blinded by the light
(I was blinded) I was blinded by the light
(I was blinded) I was blinded
(I was blinded)
(I was blinded)
