I thought it was wrapped up like a douche another roamer in the night also and argued for hours with my girlfriend until we called the radio station and they had us on the air. I was made a fool of, but still thought I was right.

I also thought it was "wrapped up like a douche" (until this very minute) followed by "you know the roamer in the night" I thought a douche must be some kind of zombie creature.

I thought it was "Revved up like a douche, another Rommer in the night. When I was in Germany, there was a brand of helmet called a Rommer, and the insignia was a lighthouse. Still it really didn't make sense to me.

For years I always thought these lyrics were: Wrapped up like a douche Another odor in the night Those lyrics sound more like what I hear in the song and make more sense.

Yes...a deuce coupe...which is 1932 Ford, especially one that has been "souped up". Still its a very esoteric reference even if you are from Jersey.

Deuce is also known as a deuce coupe, like in the Beach Boys song. To rev a deuce means you're revving up your car. :)

I still have not understood fully how one might become revved up like a deuce anyway.
mcrjjj Nov 13, 2010 7:34 pm
What's appropriate is that the Manfred Mann version doesn't make sense anyway, so why not "wrapped up like a douche?" The original (Springsteen) lyrics were "cut loose like a deuce".

Surely it's "Crept up like a doosher in the middle of the night"? For years I've been wondering what a doosher is.

To be honest, when I was about 12 I saw the Kids in the Hall skit about this song. I had never heard it before so I didnt have any idea what they were arguing about. When I did finally hear the song, I also heard rolled up like a douche, another roller in the night.
katie6107 Feb 15, 2009 4:55 pm
To be fair that is what you heard. Manfred made a mistake with the lyrics, yes the orginal lyrics by Springsteen had nothing to do with douches. However that is how it was redone by Manfred. So you heard it write if you were indeed listening to Manfred Mann, if you were listening to Springsteen however; you misheard ^^
Tibarnrox Feb 15, 2009 11:48 am
I actually seen Manfred Mann in concert and I sang: Wrapped up like a douche haha
estar_bunny Jan 13, 2009 7:12 pm
how about wrapped up like a douche, another odor in the night?
paulkight Jan 13, 2009 4:57 pm
atleast in the manfred mann version
adambear8888 Oct 24, 2008 6:24 pm
does anyone else realize they have the wrong artist, Bruce Springsteen originally wrote and sang this song, he did a much better job too, i hope to never hear chopsticks played in a rock song again, and that isnt even the worst part about this song
adambear8888 Oct 24, 2008 6:24 pm
I'm surprised this site isn't called "wrappeduplikeadouche.com"
DiceOfDeath Oct 11, 2008 11:13 pm
