Cloud Nine

Original songwriter: Barrett Strong, Norman Jesse Whitfield

Childhood part of my life wasn't very pretty see

I was born and raised in the slums of the city

It was a one room shack

I slept ten other children beside me

We hardly had enough food or room to sleep

It was hard times

I needed somethin' ease

My troubled mind hmm listen

My father didn't know the meaning of work

He disrespected mama and treated us like dirt

I left home seekin' a job that I never did find

Depressed and down hearted I took to cloud nine

An' I'm doin' fine up here on cloud nine listen one more time

I'm doin' fine up here on cloud nine folks now they tell me

They say give yourself a chance and don't let life pass you by

'Cos the world around is a rat race where only the strong survive

It's a dog eat dog world and that ain't no lie

It ain't even safe no more to walk the streets at night

I'm doin' fine on cloud nine lemme tell ya 'bout cloud nine

You can be what you wanna be

You ain't got no responsibilities

An' every man every man is free

You're a million miles from reality

I wanna say I love the life I live an' I'm gonna live the life I love

Out here on Cloud nine

I I I I I

I'm ridin' high on Cloud nine

You're as free as a bird in flight

Ain't no diff'rence 'tween day and night

It's a world of love and harmony

You're a million miles from reality

Oh you can be what you wanna be

You ain't got no responsibilities

Every man in his mind is free

You're a million miles from reality

You can be what you wanna be oh dooh

What ooh what what

I'm doing fine on Cloud nine, what
