Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light

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 a merry-go-round
With this very unpleasing
Sneezing and wheezing
The calliope crashed to the ground

The calliope crashed to the ground
Oh, she was blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

Some silicone sister
With her manager mister
Told me I've got what it takes
She said
"I'll turn you on, sonny, to something strong
Play the song with the funky break"
And go-kart 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
'Cause she was blinded by the light
Wrapped 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 to 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 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
That's where they expect it least"
And some new mown chaperone
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
'Cause she was blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night

Blinded by the light
Wrapped up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light

(sung simultaneously:)
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 a merry-go-round
With this very unpleasing
Sneezing and wheezing
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 and turn up the band"
Some silicone sister
With her manager mister
Told me I've got what it takes
She said,
"I'll turn you on, sonny, to something strong"

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