Stuck in the Middle ...


Many of you may know this song by Stealers Wheel ...


Being quite insane, I have always used it as the basis for teaching subnetting ... a technology that we used to organise networks in IP version 4.

So, for networking geeks everywhere ... I have adapted the lyrics; you can hear the song, now can someone work with me to create a soundtrack that could go viral.

Well I don't know why I came here tonight,
I got the feeling that something ain't right,
I'm so scared the network isn't there,
And I'm wondering how I'll ping the next hop o'er there,
Networks to the left of me,
Hosts to the right, here I am,
Stuck in the middle with you.

Yes I'm stuck in the middle with you,
And I'm wondering what it is I should do,
It's so hard to keep this smile from my face,
Losing control, yeah, I'm all over the place,
1's to the left of me, 0's to the right,
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.

Well you started out with nothing,
And you're proud that you're a networking fan,
And your friends, they all come crawlin,
Slap you on the back and say,
IP'eee.... IP'eee.....

Trying to make some sense of it all,
But I can see that it makes no sense at all,
Is it cool to use IP version 4,
'Cause I don't think that I can take anymore
Networks to the left of me, Hosts to the right,
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.


Well you started out with nothing,

And you're proud that you're a networking fan,
And your friends, they all come crawlin,
Slap you on the back and say,
IP'eee.... IP'eee.....

Well I don't know why I came here tonight,

I got the feeling that something ain't right,
I'm so scared the network isn't there,
And I'm wondering how I'll ping the next hop o'er there,
1's to the left of me,
0's to the right, here I am,
Stuck in the middle with you,
Yes I'm stuck in the middle with you,
Stuck in the middle with you.
