This song is one of many sources of misheard song lyrics know as a Mondegreen. In particular the line "Revved up like a deuce".
“4th of July, AsburyPark (Sandy)” written and performed by Bruce Springsteen from his second Album ‘The Wild, the Innocent & the E Street Shuffle’ in July of 1973. Bruce being a fixture at one time on the New Jersey Boardwalk mentions the real ‘Madam Marie’ fortune teller in this song. Showing his brilliant storytelling, at five and a half minutes this is not your average top 40 love song, more’s the pity I say.
