Steve Miller Band – 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

    Stuck in the middle with you, I believe, is being in a place where there is no right way to go. His reference to "you" seems to Indicate that person does not share his vision of where he is. The song is very complex to interpret but "I'm trying to make some sense of it all".

    Sleeping on the floor, falling out of a chair, getting down stairs, I always took these as references to a song about Rafferty speaking to himself, and/or a pal (Egan?) at a bar amongst a bunch of fake friends and "new" acquaintances (clowns, jokers) wanting free drinks and a piece of his success, and struggling with the booze and all. An introspective look at "how did I end up here" kind of thing.

    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!

    "Stuck in the Middle with You" means being in a place where you're caught in relationships that don't feel right. You're just playing along, living a fake life. You're lying & pretending. You lament yourself & you despise others. Not one of the people in your world understands you & in fact they are all shallow clowns & annoying jokers who disguise their real selves to fit in. The only way to get the hell away from them is to sing the words of this song.
