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

    I don't know, but whoever posted this got the band name wrong. This song is by Steeler's Wheel, NOT Steve Miller Band. DUH.

    It's about starting adulthood with nothing and working hard and finding success. Then going back home among family and friends and drinking at a reunion style party while they ask you for help and handouts.

    I think its about alcoholism and poverty and realisation that even though hes a self made man, is that it. All you work for. And a relationship your not too happy with. It seemed that the dream was better.

    You and me, the only sane ones in the middle of all this crazy ! You and me, but what is with our families? You and me, against the rest of them, but 'normal' as we are, can we make it in this world?
