"Wrapped Up Like a Douche" And Other Wrong Lyrics

Way back in the '70s, there was a rock hit by Manfred Mann's Earth Band, whatever that was, and every time I heard it, I was convinced the lead vocalist was singing, "Blinded by the light, wrapped up like a douche..."

But it was "revved up like a deuce"! The only douche was me!

And by the way, the original version was by the song's author, Bruce Springsteen, and HE sang "cut loose like a deuce"!


Have there ever been song lyrics you grossly misunderstood? Any do you still not know what the hell the real lyrics are?
