Blinded by the DOT
revved up like a douche,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the DOT
He DOT down but he never got tired
He gonna make it through the night
He’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 DOT 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 standin’ in the corner,
watching the young girls dance
And some fresh-sown moonstone was messin’ with his frozen zone, reminding him of romance
The calliope crashed to the ground
But he was…
Blinded by the DOT,
revved up like a douche,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the DOT,
revved up like a douche,
another runner in the night
Blinded by the DOT,...

The real version has
Cut loose like a deuce, another runner in the night

You know, as in “Little Deuce Coupe” – two-barrel carburetor and all that.

Blinded by the ‘slight’
set off in the world by a word of might
Blinded by the ‘slight’
No matter how many LJs try to make it right
But mama, that’s where the fun is
But he was…
Blinded by the DOT,
revved up like a douche,
another runner in the night
