Stealers Wheel – Stuck In The Middle With You lyrics

Well I don't know why I came here tonight,
I got the feelin' that somethin' ain't right,
I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair,
And I'm wonderin' how I'll get down the stairs

Clowns to the left of me,
Joker's to the right,
Here I am Stuck in the middle with you
Yes I'm, Stuck in the middle with you

And I'm wonderin' what it is I should do,
It's so hard to keep this smile from my face,
Losin' control, yeah I'm all over the place.

Clowns to the left of me,
Joker's to the right,
Here I am Stuck in the middle with you

Well You started off with nothin'
And your proud that you're a self-made man
And your family all come callin'
Slap you on the back and say
Keee. Ee. Ee. Eys, plea. Ea. Ea. Ease,

Tryin' to make some sense of it all,
But I can see it makes no sense at all,
Is it cool to go to sleep on the floor,
You don't think that I can take anymore.

Clowns to the left of me,
Joker's to the right,
Here I am Stuck in the middle with you

Well You started off with nothin'
And your proud that you're a self-made man
And your family all come callin'
Slap you on the back and say
Plea. Ea. Ea. Ease, plea. Ea. Ea. Ease

Well I don't know why I came here tonight,
I got the feelin' that somethin' ain't right,
I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair,
And I'm wonderin' how I'll get down the stairs

Clowns to the left of me,
Joker's to the right,
Here I am Stuck in the middle with you
Yes I'm, Stuck in the middle with you.

Stuck in the middle with you,
Here I am stuck in the middle with you

    The song was written as a parody of Bob Dylan's paranoid style. They came up with it after an uncomfortable meeting with some record executives. So I think the I and You in the song are the writers, and they have become successful without any help from friends and family, but now everyone wants a piece. I think they were probably nervous they would do something dumb (like fall off a chair) in front of the execs, and they did not feel like they fit in the cafe where the meeting took place. The song was recorded by Stealer's Wheel, not Steve Miller Band. They were surprised when it hit the Billboard charts :).

    Finding yourself or myself in a scary place. And being stuck in the middle. I can relate to because I am a middle child and even a double middle. Alot of times I am forgotten somehow. There is alot of stuff going on around me. I could go either way and I feel I am all over the place in more ways than one. Smiling, being a model. You know for the camera. Trying to make sense of it all. I tried for so long but can't so I find I don't have to anymore. Just be free!
