I hear "Wrapped up like a douche."
He is allegedly saying "Revved up like a deuce..."
Whatever that means. "Deuce" is common slang for poop where I come from.
Why, and how would you rev one up?
Life has many mysteries.

Maybe it refers to a 2 cylinder motor? I have no clue.

Learn something everyday — always heard “wrapped up like a douche...”

Maybe a 2 barrel carburetor?

V-twin on a Morgan 3-wheeler?
I have actually revved that deuce.
Crazy fun vehicle.

I believe it's short for "Deuce Coupe", a la the Beach Boys

Sure haven't heard that song is a few decades.



LOL.

Google the song+lyrics.

Deuce

Song lyrics aren't suppose to make sense, just sound good.

Original by Springsteen, a few years before Manfred Mann.



Always heard it as Cuttin' loose like a deuce, in his song.


I like both of these songs.

Google is pretty cool.
"A deuce is a car produced by Ford in 1932 (the "2" in 1932 is the "deuce"). ... The line at the end of the song, "There's one more thing, I got the pink slip daddy," means that the singer won a race with his Little Deuce Coupe, earning him his opponent's car."
I prefer the front grill styling of the '33.

Yep, that's what I always heard. Back in the day everyone made fun of the song. Gah, now I have that song stuck in my head!

Wiki has a whole page dedicated to blinded by the light. I never knew Bruce Springsteen wrote it in 1973 and it was a cover by Manfred Mann in 76/77.

Blinded By The Light

Unlike Blinded By The Right (a Book) which I found while looking up BBTL...

Blinded by the Right

Who knew?

"But, mama...that's where the fun is."
"Boner on my shoulder."
This dude is trolling the radio.
"That'll do pig."

False dichotomy.

My sources tell me it was "wrapped up like a doosh".

Now we have that one solved what is a Black Betty?

Joking right? The Beach Boys recorded "Little Duece Coup" ......"Duece" being dual carburetor... Ie: fast car.

I had no idea. Thank you! Now, this song makes much more sense.

He's worth a Deuce!

We would race for pink slips in Detroit in the 50's-60's...the loser gives his car (pick slip registration) to the winner.


Was a hot blonde in a yellow Corvette whose dash was covered in pink slips.She was BAAAAD!

In little script on the bottom front fender said "If you can BEAT me? You can E__ me!"

'Stayed away from her!
