Em x7 B7 x4

Em                                                                              B7
Well, madman drummers bummers and Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat
                                                                        Em
In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat
                                                                              B7
With a boulder on my shoulder, feelin' kinda older I tripped the merry-go-round
                                                                                 Em
With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing the calliope crashed to the ground

                                       B7
Some all-hot half-shot was headin' for the hot spot snappin' his fingers clappin' his hands Em
And some fleshpot mascot was tied into a lover's knot with a whatnot in her hand
                                                                                              
Now young Scott with a slingshot finally found a tender spot and throws his lover in the sand
                                       Em
And some bloodshot forget-me-not whispers, "Daddy's within earshot, save the 
buckshot, turn up the band"

                                                                     B7
We were blinded (blinded) blinded (blinded) blinded baby by the light
                                                                      Em
We were blinded (blinded) blinded (blinded) blinded baby by the light
Yeah!

Em x4 B7 x4
Em x4 B7 x4

     Am                                        G
Some silicone sister with her manager's mister told me I got what it takes
            Am                                            G
Said, "I'll turn you on sonny, to something strong if you play that song with the funky break"
Am                                               G
Go-cart Mozart checkin' out the weather chart to see if it was safe to go outside
Am                                              B7
Little Early-Pearly came by in her curly-wurly, asked me if I needed a ride

Em                                                                      B7
Some hazard from Harvard was skunked on beer playin' backyard bombardier
                 Em
And Scotland Yard was trying hard, sent some dude with a calling card, said, "Do 
what you like, don't do it here"
B7
Some kidnapped handicap was complainin' that he caught the clap from some 
mousetrap he bought last night
                                                                                  Em
I unsnapped his skull cap, between his ears I saw a gap, figured he'd be all right

                                                                     B7
We were blinded (blinded) blinded (blinded) blinded baby by the light
                                                                     Em
We were blinded (blinded) blinded (blinded) blinded baby by the light
                                                                     B7
We were blinded (blinded) blinded (blinded) blinded baby by the light
                                                                     Em
We were blinded (blinded) blinded (blinded) blinded baby by the light

Am                                                        Em
Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun
       B7
Oh but mama
                    Em
That's where the fun is

Outro:
Em x7 B7 x4  Em x4 B7 x4
One, two, one, two, three!
Whoa!

Em                                           B7
(Blinded, blinded, blinded baby by the light
                                            Em (3 beats)
Blinded, blinded, blinded baby by the light)
