Both Sides Now

Written by Joni Mitchell. Hit performance by Judy Collins.

Sometimes, the misheard lyric is as valid or more valid than the actual lyric

So many things I would have done
But clowns got in my way...

If you're confused by the clarity and truth of the misheard song lyric, "clowns" is actually "clouds".

Clowns get in my way,
Every day,
Every day.
