Misheard Song Lyrics -> Stories -> Steeler's Wheel

Misheard lyrics (also called mondegreens) occur when people misunderstand the lyrics in a song. These are NOT intentional rephrasing of lyrics, which is called parody. For more information about the misheard lyrics available on this site, please read our FAQ.

This page contains a list of the songs that have stories about their misheard lyrics submitted.

Song names are sorted by first letter, excluding A and The. This is sorted by song title only, not by song title and performer. So if two different performers preformed the same song, you'll see misheard lyrics for both on the same page (provided the song title was spelt the same both times, and misheard lyrics have been submitted for both!).

Steeler's Wheel's, "Stuck in the Middle with You"
The Misheard Lyrics:
Clouds to the left of me, pokers to the right
Here I am, a diddle diddle with you
The Real Lyrics:
Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you
The Story: I was just a little elementary school kid. I knew nothing about politics (which this song may or may not be referring to, as in "left wing" and "right wing" and centrism) and the Scottish accent may have thrown me off as well. Also, there's the nursery rhyme that starts with "Hey diddle diddle". - Submitted by: Mr. Steel Wheels
