The lyrics 'Mama always told me not to look into the sights of the sun, Oh but mama that's where the fun is' are from the song Blinded by the Light, made famous by Manfred Mann's Earth Band.

Who Wrote Blinded by the Light? The song was written and recorded by Bruce Springsteen in 1972, and was the first single from his debut album Greetings from Asbury Park, N.J. This version of the song was met with little success, and didn't even make it into the charts.

In 1977, Manfred Mann's Earth Band released a cover of the song that reached number one in both the United States and Canada. The song was recorded for their seventh studio album, The Roaring Silence, and featured a change in the chorus from Springsteen's "cut loose like a deuce" to "revved up like a deuce." In 2002, Danish House act Funkstar De Luxe released a disco version of Blinded by the Light, taken from the album Funkturistic. Blinded by the Light - Manfred Mann's Earth Band
