Middle Of The Road Lyrics

Artist: The Pretenders


In the middle of the road,
Is trying to find me.
I'm standing in the middle of life with my pains behind me.


But, I got a smile
For everyone I meet.
Long as you don't try dragging my bay,
Or dropping a bomb on the street.


Come on baby,
Get in the road.
Come on now,
In the middle of the road, yeah.


In the middle of the road,
You see the darnest things.
Like fat cats driving around in jeeps through the city,
Wearing big diamond rings and silk suits.
Past corrugated tin shacks holed up with kids and
Man I don't mean a Hampstead nursery.
But when you own a big chunk of the bloody third world,
The babies just come with the scenery.


Come on baby,
Get in the road.
Come on now,
In the middle of the road, yeah.


One. Two. Three. Four. Five. Six.


In the middle of the road,
Is my private cul de sac.
I can't get from the cab to the curb,
Without some little jerk on my back,
Don't harass me kid,
Can't you tell I'm going home, I'm tired as hell,
I'm not the cat I used to be,
I've got a kid, I'm thirty-three baby.
Get in the road.
Come on now,
In the middle of the road.

I love the way chrisie blows harp, and not only that but she's a great song writter,and not only that a great rhythm guitarist, and pretty too. (John 3:16,17)
by SLG on 10/30/2010 7:28pm
@baconhat No it definitely says "I've got a kid, I'm 33" I've listened to it over and over, and that fits the 'midlife' theme of the song
by mya ballzich on 3/2/2011 12:18pm

She's right. Capitalism sucks.

The future is in direct worker ownership of the businesses. Unplug yourself from the matrix.
by Glenn Stanton on 6/28/2012 3:02pm
The correct line is:
"Past corrugated tin shacks and Blvd Pimps"
by A big fan of hers! on 10/27/2012 12:52pm
I grew up on her songs.
Crissie Hynde is amazing.
She's a true artist and the proof that a true artist doesn't pick art but rather the oppisite!
by Barry on 10/6/2013 10:10am
Nope, it's I got a kid I'm 33. I'm watching a Pretender's concert as I write this.
by fitz on 11/15/2013 5:51am
she can't sing though
by tiff on 12/21/2013 12:44am
She can. I loved her cover of I'll shall be Released by Bob Dylan
