Stuck In The Middle lyrics

Recommended Posts

I apologize in advance if this thread doesn't belong here or there is already one like this.

 

I just can't take it anymore! I have been searching for Stuck In The Middle lyrics and they are all the same and are either wrong or I am in need of a hearing aide. Tell me, please, are these correct? :shocked:

 

I sit and think about the day that you're gonna die,

'Cos your wrinkled eyes betrayed the joy with which you smiled.

Care to see my reason?

Care to put your life in mine?

Looking at life from the perspective of a boy

Who's learnt to love you but has also learned to grow.

Could we make it better, stormy weather,

So I dunno.

 

Oh, oh, oh - Is there anybody home?

Who'll believe me, won't deceive me, who'll try to teach me?

Ah, ah, ah - Is there anybody home?

Who wants to have me, just to love me?

Stuck in the middle.

 

I look at you,

You look at me,

We bite each other.

And with your better words you kick me in the gutter.

But my troops are bigger than yours

'Cos you'll never stand my fight.

Ours is a family that's based upon tradition

But with my careless words I tread upon your vision.

Are five kids better than one, who'd busy like to be gone?

 

Oh, oh, oh - Is there anybody home?

Who'll believe me, won't deceive me, who'll try to teach me?

Ah, ah, ah - Is there anybody home?

Who wants to have me, just to love me?

Stuck in the middle.

Yea...Yea...Yea...

 

This is to my name,

This ain't a pretty plan to break your heart of me.

I know that what I've started means that when we have parted

I can live in all this (stench?).

 

Oh, oh, oh - Is there anybody home?

Who'll believe me, won't deceive me, who'll try to teach me?

Ah, ah, ah - Is there anybody home?

Who wants to have me, just to love me?

Stuck in the middle,

Stuck in the middle,

Stuck in the middle,

Stuck in the middle

 

Because no matter how many times I listen to it, some of this doesn't sound right. The chorus, for instance, sounds like it should be

 

Oh, oh, oh - Is there anybody home?

Who will believe me, won't deceive me, you won't try to change me?

Ah, ah, ah - Is there anybody home?

Who wants to have me just to love me, stuck in the middle?

 

Am I wrong, here? It really is what it sounds like to me :blink:

 

And then there is the line

 

And with your better words you kick me in the gutter.

But my troops are bigger than yours

...

are five kids better than one, who'd busy like to be gone?

 

Which I think should be:

 

And with your bitter words you kick me in the gutter

But my troops are bigger than yours

...

are five kids better than one, who doesn't like to be (and I can't figure out the last bit)

 

And of course

 

This is to my name,

This ain't a pretty plan to break your heart of me.

I know that what I've started means that when we have parted

I can live in all this (stench?).

 

Which sound more like

 

This is who I am(not sure)

This ain't a greater plan to break your heart or me

I know that what I've started means that when we have parted

I can live in honesty

 

Tell me if I'm completely off base, please. And if not, can you help me get the whole of the correct lyrics? :wink2:

 

Thanks everyone!

Hi Shontih, I don't think you need a hearing aid! I agree with you -- here's my take on these lyrics:

 

I sit and think about the day that you're gonna die,

'Cos your wrinkled eyes betrayed the joy with which you smile.

Care to see my reason?

Care to put your life in mine?

Looking at life from the perspective of a boy

Who's learnt to love you but has also learned to grow.

Could we make it better, stormy weather,

So I dunno.

 

I think the last line is actually, "It's so hard to know."

 

Oh, oh, oh - Is there anybody home?

Who'll believe me, won't deceive me, who'll try to teach me?

Ah, ah, ah - Is there anybody home?

Who wants to have me, just to love me?

Stuck in the middle.

 

I think that second line is "won't try to change me" as well.

 

I look at you,

You look at me,

We bite each other.

And with your better words you kick me in the gutter.

But my troops are bigger than yours

'Cos you'll never stand my fight.

Ours is a family that's based upon tradition

But with my careless words I tread upon your vision.

Are five kids better than one, who'd busy like to be gone?

 

I definitely agree it's bitter, not better.

 

And I think the last line is "who doesn't like to [become]?"

(Not quite sure about the last syllable.)

 

This is (not sure)

This ain't a greater plan to break your heart or me

I know that what I've started means that when we have parted

I can live in honesty

 

To me the first line sounds like, "This is just who I am"

And I agree with you about the rest of the verse.

 

So, not sure that *I'm* right either, but my ears are hearing it pretty much the way yours are. :wink2:

umm.. im nt sure of all of it but im guessin that in the chorus you got it right by sayin:

Oh, oh, oh - Is there anybody home?

Who will believe me, won't deceive me, you won't try to change me?

Ah, ah, ah - Is there anybody home?

Who wants to have me just to love me, stuck in the middle?

 

im sure its "you wont try to change me"? aswell...

ummmm... actually i think your right in all the bits above! :thumb_yello:

This is just who I am,

This ain't a greater plan to break your heart or me.

 

I think this is actually:

 

This is just who I am

This ain't a creative plan to break your heart over me

 

And maybe:

 

But my troops are bigger than yours

'Cos you'll never stand my fight.

 

is

 

But my dreams are bigger than yours

You'll never stop my fight

 

What do you guys think?

you see now i actually started listening and I'm hearing something as well, but thats prbably just my foreign ears...

 

Oh, oh, oh - Is there anybody home?

Who will believe me, won't deceive me, you won't try to change me?

Ah, ah, ah - Is there anybody home?

Who wants to have me just to love me, stuck in the middle?

I hear a lot oh rschhhhhhhhhhhh in that live performance, that's what :boxed:

 

I think it's pretty clear at least in the acoustic version that he says change :blink:

 

the only thing I really am unsure of is if it's "become" or "be common" :blink:

posted "my" version in the lyrics thread somewhere :blink:

really..?? me too!! that's why we love so much stuck in the middle! I mean they all have stunning lyrics, but this song's REALLY one based upon lyrics :wub2:

 

Exactly :mf_rosetinted: For me the lyrics are often much more important than the music :mf_rosetinted: If I don't like the lyrics of a song then I can't enjoy it no matter how amazing the music is :blink: Probably why I often prefer to listen to music where I don't understand the language it's sung in :bleh:
