Scary Song Lyrics, Manfred Mann's Earth Band

Check out the index.

Manfred Mann's Earth Band's, "Blinded By The Light"
The Lyrics:
With a boulder on my shoulder feelin' kinda older I tripped the merry-go-round
Of all the weird lyrics in this version of The Boss' tune, these are the most unnerving, if not downright scary (even though I and others will still like this version). After all how many people really want to go around carrying a "boulder on their shoulder" (and that would make me feel older; unless it's the proverbial non-existent kind that many do) and I don't know how many folks really want to "trip a merry-go-round".
