So I didn’t read every thread on RiotACT? Someone shoot that woman, she’s turning normal.

Maybe put a calendar reminder in now for 2028?!

Good thing it was cloudy then, otherwise you could have been:

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner…

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’
Sneasin’ and wheesin’
The calliopie crashed to the ground

The calliopie crashed to the ground

But she was
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce…

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-kart Mozart
Was checkin’ out the weather chart
Seein’ if it was safe out side

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

But she was
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 tired
She’s gonna make it through the night
She’s gonna make it through the night

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
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 funny bone
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-sown moonstone
Was messin’ with his frozen zone
Remindin’ him of romance

The callalopie crashed to the ground

But she was
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night

Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night

Madman, drummers bummers
(Blinded by the light)
Indians in the summer with a
Teenage diplomat
(Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night)

In the dumps with the mumps
(Blinded by the light)
As the adolescent pumps
His way into his hat
(Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night)

With a boulder on my shoulder
(Blinded by the light)
Feelin kinda older,
I tripped the merry-go-round
(Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night)

With this very unpleasin’
(Blinded by the light)
Sneasin’ and wheesin’
The calliopie crashed to the ground
(Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night)

Now Scott with a slingshot
(Blinded by the light)
Finally found a tender spot
And throws his lover in the sand
(Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night)

And some bloodshot forget-me-not
(Blinded by the light)
Said “daddy’s within earshot,
Save the buckshot – turn up the band”
(Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night)

Some silicone sister
(Blinded by the light)
With a manager mister
Told me I got what it takes
(Revved up like a deuce,
Another runner in the night)

She said “I’ll turn you on sonny
(Blinded by the light)
To something strong”

She got down, but she never got tired
She’s gonna make it through the night

Double Jay was fond of that song when it first got on air. Hope you had fun typing it all out.
