Track Name: Blinded by the Light
Chorus:
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a Deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light, revved up like a Deuce
Another runner in the night

Madman drummers bummers Indians in the summer
With a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps
As the adolescent pumps his way in to his hat
With a boulder on my shoulder feeling kind of older
I tripped the merry go round
With this very unpleasing sneezing and wheezing
The calliope crashed to the ground
The calliope crashed to the ground and she was

Repeat Chorus

Some silicone sister with her manager mister
Told me I got what it takes
She said I'll turn you on sonny to something strong
Play the song with the disco break
And go kart Mozart was checking out the weather chart
See if it was safe outside
And little Early Pearly came by in his curly-whirly
And asked me if I needed a ride
The calliope crashed to the ground and she was

Repeat Chorus twice

Now Scott with a slingshot finally found a tender spot
And throws his lover in the sand
And some bloodshot forget me not his daddy's within earshot
Save the buckshot turn up the band
Some silicone sister with her manager mister
Told me I got what it takes
She said I'll turn you on sonny to something strong....

She got down, but she never got tight
She's gonna make it through the night
Track Name: Promise Me, I Can Count on You
Friends really are the frosting on the cake of life;
They love us on our good days or in times of strife.
They always are so ready to lend a helping hand,
And if we are troubled, they're sure to understand.

Chorus:
Promise me, I can count on you
'Cause on you I can always depend.
Promise me, I can count on you
It's only you that I need until the very bitter end.
Promise me, I can count on you
To stay in my heart forever, because you're my best friend.

Having friends is wondrous; they enrich us everyday,
And help to lessen burdens as we travel on our way.
So, I give thanks for friendship, the old ones and the new,
For they are of great value and to them I am most true.

Repeat Chorus

Promise me, I can count on you
To stay by my side through dismay
Because you're my best friend.
