Blinded by the light...

Revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night....

What was Manfred Mann's Earth Band implying here? is lead singer Chris Thompson referencing crapping his pants in his sleep?

Another fun fact... this was a cover of Bruce Springsteen's first single, which didn't garner much success. The Boss's original lyric was "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", which again seems to imply some form of night-pooping...but perhaps with bouts of constipation on the road to empty bowels?

It's a rich tapestry, music.

They called him "the boss" because he never took orders from his bowels.
