blinded by lyrics

Some all-hot half-shot was headin' for the hot spot snappin' his fingers clappin' his hands 
And some fleshpot mascot was tied into a lover's knot with a whatnot in her hand 
And now young Scott with a slingshot finally found a tender spot and throws his lover in the sand
And some bloodshot forget-me-not whispers daddy's within earshot save the buckshot turn up the band

I remember the Manfred Mann version the best.  I only recently discovered that Bruce Springsteen wrote the song in 1973.

At the beginning of this clip Bruce offers some insight to his creation.

save the buckshot turn up the band
Now that's good advice!
