Old song on the radio, know it well, details on the tip of your tongue....

Can't find your tongue anywhere.

I'm almost....ALMOST, too embarrassed to ask. This is one that's been covered in this forum before, but not easily located through search. I tried.

"BLINDED BY THE LIGHT, _______ __ ____ _ _____" (second half sounds like, "wrapped up like a douche", but actualy ends in DUECE, I believe.

What is the actual missing lyrics?
Is it Gary Wright?

VH1 had a show years ago that actually delved into such songs that people wernt sure what many songs lyrics really were saying. That song was one of them.

Blinded by the light, revved up like a duece, another runner in the night.

And I may have even screwed that up too.:)
