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

Blinded by the light
Revved 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 through 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 her curly wurly
And asked me if i needed a ride

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 it's funnybone
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-sewn moonstone
Was messin' with his frozen zone
Reminding him of romance
