Manfred Man

Manfred Mann is apparently behind the song "Blinded by the Light" I always thought he said "Blinded by the light,wrapped up like a douche, another runner in the night..."and never understood why the hell anyone would sing about that…I recently found out he says “Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night”

What is a deuce? Some type of car?

A deuce is a kind of car, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Model_B_(1932)#Deuce_coupe Interesting fact.. Bruce Springsteen wrote the lyric "Cut loose like a deuce" but then Manfred Mann changed it to "Revved up like a deuce"

Well, The song was originally written and recorded by Bruce, but the singer that you're hearing on the track is Paul Jones (The lead vocalist of Manfred Mann)
