TITLE: Blinded by the Light
Lyrics and Chords

Madmen 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

/ E A / B7 E / :

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
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

/ AB E / / AB C#m / B7 - / A E /

Some brimstone baritone anticyclone 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...

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 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 in by her curly-wurly
And asked me if I needed a ride

/ B - / A E / : / B - / A EB7 /

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 going 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 complaining 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
But I 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
Oh but mama that's where the fun is

/ AB E / / AB C#m / B - A E / A E /
