Wrapped up like a douche

I’m sure I’m not the only person who, in younger days, misunderstood this lyric from Bruce Springsteen’s “Blinded by the Light”: Revved up like a deuce / another runner in the night.  Particularly in the song’s most popular version performed by Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, the line is difficult to understand.  But I had no idea just how many variations of the misunderstanding exist.
