In the Middle There's Me Lyrics

2016 London's West End revival
Half a Sixpence the Musical - In the Middle There's Me Lyrics

How do you know when you find you’ve got two
Which one of the two is the one.
I’m at sixes and sevens, all fingers and thumbs.
The mental arithmetic isn’t much fun.
It’s a mess, I confess.
Me head and my heart won’t agree.
On the one hand there’s her,
On the other there’s her.
And then in the middle there’s me.

How do you choose between this one and that?
There has to be some kind of rule.
To see both of them happy: that’s what I want most.
I feel like a gooseberry but I’m just a fool.
I’m a chump. I should plump
For the one who is my cup of tea.
On the one hand there’s her,
On the other there’s her.
And then in the middle there’s me.

Can it be as hard as he supposes?
Seems good fortune just falls into his lap.
And yet look at him, the thorn between two roses.
I’ve never seen a more unhappy chap.

How do you know when you find you’ve got two    (How do you know)
Which one       (one)
Of the two      (two)
Is the one?     (is the one, is the one)
I’m at sixes and sevens (sixes and sevens)
all fingers and thumbs. (fingers and thumbs)
The mental arithmetic isn’t much fun.   (isn’t much fun)
It’s a mess     (It’s a mess)
I confess.      (I confess)
Me head and my heart won’t agree.
On the one hand there’s her,
(On the one hand there’s her,)
On the other              her
(On the other there’s her.)
And then in the middle (then in the middle)
Oh what a riddle (Oh what a riddle)
And then in the middle (in the middle)
There’s me.
How do you choose?
How do you choose?
How do you choose?
