Boz Scaggs - Miss Riddle Lyrics

Hey Miss Riddle I'm stuck in the middle again
I don't know how but you've got me playing both ends
Of a game I should know all about
That you came and turned inside out
Hey Miss Riddle I'm stuck in the middle again

It's a long way home it's late and yet we pretend
It's a long way home when you call last night just friends
So cool so clear so nonchalant
So absolutely what I want
Hey hey Miss Riddle I'm stuck in the middle again

I've heard a lot of talk about how you were sizing me up
A line or two you dropped about but don't let me interrupt
Your game Miss Riddle I'm stuck in the middle again


I found out why those birds go looking for spring
I found out what those dizzy heights can bring
Because I've found your lips so awfully nice
One stop south of paradise
Whatcha say Miss Riddle
What say we do it again.. again.. again

Hey Miss Riddle I'm stuck in the middle again
I don't know how but you've got me playing both ends
Of a game I should know all about
That you came and turned inside out
Hey hey Miss Riddle I'm stuck in the middle.. again.. again

Whatcha say Miss Riddle I say we do it again

It's a long way home
Whatcha we stop it
Whatcha say we drop it
Whatcha say Miss Riddle
What say we do it again.. again.. again.. again

    Good Music...I like this cut. Smooth. It's saying something.
    And I'm just as confused if not more than the song.
    Musically great...when was this cut?
    Doubt mean to sound like a dummy. But....

    Fred Flintstone

    And here we are,'s from the album "Dig", Karen. Around 2000...maybe 2002. Somewhen back then. Everybody was freakin' about the 911 attack... hmmm... must'a been around 2001.

    Nice song by Boz

  20. stanley stewart

    Smooth, it's like can we do it with out a fight. Love that.

  21. jstarang1

    This song is extra cheesy and sounds way to generic champagne lounge type music...the vocals are too stuffy...this guy was the lead guitar player for the Steve Miller Band? My stock Acura sound system is a rare car system channeled in 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound. It came with a demonstration disc to show you how all the instruments come out in different speakers in true 5.1 channel surround sound off DVD audio discs mixed in 5.1. They basically built 5.1surround in the car and went a step above premium audio for the Frank Zappa audio stickler type. But long story short I heard this song on the demonstration Acura CD...had 20 cuts...mostly major pop hits like Dire Straits Money for Nothing and Doors Touch Me. This was the 12th cut on the CD and it was super cheesy to me. I like Steve Miller though. Fly like an Eagle was on the disc as well. First time I heard of Boz Scaggs was in a family guy joke and I'm very well versed on music history this is just a big one I overlooked.. .even though I'm not a fan I'm glad to be aware...and love this man's guitar work with the Steve Miller Band

    Dave Hackett

    jstarang1 you drive an Acura?, PUTZ!!

    Dave Hackett

    @jstarang1 So, you're a Racist Pig and a putz, good to know.

    ras 977

    Cheesy is Barry Manilow not Boz-thnx for your comment.

    Larry N

    Everyone has their own taste. I see what you're saying, but I still love the atmosphere created on this cut, sort of a guilty pleasure.

  22. Neil Miller

    First Time I Heard This. I was outside doing the yard work at my house. I had to stop working and turn it up. You have to hear it in the park

    Karen Brandwein

    As time passes, Boz Scaggs seems to grow and grow as an artist - you can only evaluate these things properly after twenty, thirty years go past.

  94. Allan Dacruz

    I never knew this was by him? Can see why sooo many people really like Boz and his music over the years. Worthy of a chilled remix but lovely in the original format too. Cheers. It's a bit like him being Toto's first lead singer.mmmmm
