Of all the songs I ever heard on the radio, this one, sung by Manfred Mann, written by Bruce Springsteen, drove me crazy. I could not figure out the words, and in singing along to it, I came up with some really weird lyrics of my own.

Has this ever happened to you?


Blinded By The Light

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
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
Cut loose like a deuce another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
He got down but she 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 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,
Oh, some hazard from Harvard was skunked on beer playin' backyard bombardier
Yes and Scotland Yard was trying hard, they sent a dude with a calling card,
he said, do what you like, but don't do it here
Well I jumped up, turnedaround, 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 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 but 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

I recommend Kissthisguy.com, a site named after a misundertanding of Jimi Hendrix's "Kiss the Sky"


I was sure that when Simon and Garfunkel sang "I hear the drizzle of the rain" that they were saying "I hear the Jews love the rain".rotfl


An Irish/Scottish family with which I was close could never understand the theme song to "All in the Family" until I explained this line:

"gee, our old LaSalle was great"


This must happen frequently.

Am I the only one who thought they were saying "douche' the first time I heard that song?
In an interview, I heard Springsteen say that the song didn't do well the way he wrote it. Later someone else recorded it with the word "douche" substituted for Deuce and that made the song a big hit.

"Indiana Chicken Nugget People Say"

For some reason that's what I hear repeated during the song Listen by Tears for Fears.

For example at 6:31 in the song (in the 6:49 version on Songs From the Big Chair), they drop out the music and basically end the song with whatever the hell it is they are saying.

Just found it: "Cumpleaños chica, no hay que preocuparse..." Which translates to "Birthday girl, no need to worry"

drives me crazy... but for a different reason ;)
+1. Almost ran screaming from the "Small World" ride at Disney World (yes, I was with the kids). If our enemies ever got ahold of that song, they could psychologically break us in minutes.

This is a great song (one of the best ever) by Boston called Peace of Mind.

But these lyrics drove me crazy...

"Now if youre feelin kinda low bout the dues youve been paying
Futures coming much too slow
And you wanna run but somehow you just keep on stayin
Cant decide on which way to go
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I understand about indecision
But I dont care if I get behind

People livin in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind.

Now youre climbin to the top of the company ladder
Hope it doesnt take too long
Cantcha you see therell come a day when it wont matter
Come a day when youll be gone

I understand about indecision
But I dont care if I get behind
People living in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind.

Take a look ahead, take a look ahead, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...

Now everybodys got advice they just keep on givin
Doesnt mean too much to me
Lots of people out to make-believe theyre livin
Cant decide who they should be.


I understand about indecision
But I dont care if I get behind
People living in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind.

Take a look ahead, take a look ahead. look ahead."
