Blinded By The Ligh Lyrics

Blinded By The Ligh by Manfred Mann  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Blinded By The Ligh 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

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
But 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 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
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

Asked me if I needed a ride
But 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 tired
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 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 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, wrapped up like a deuce, another runner in the night
Blinded by the light, wrapped up like a deuce, another runner in the night
