Cloud Nine

The Temptations


Childhood part of my life it wasn't very pretty 

You see I was born and raised in the slums of the city 

It was a one-room shack that slept

Ten other children besides me

We hardly had enough food or room to sleep

It was hard times needed something 

To ease my troubled mind

Listen my father didn't know the meaning of work

He disrespected momma and treated us like dirt

I left home seeking a job that I never did find

Depressed and downhearted I took to cloud nine

I'm doing fine up here on cloud nine

Listen one more time I'm doing fine up here on cloud nine


Folks down there tell me

They say give yourself a chance, son

Don't let life pass you by 

But the world of reality is a rat race 

Where only the strongest survive

It's a dog eat dog world

And that ain't no lie

Listen it ain't even safe no more

To walk the streets at night


I'm doing fine on cloud nine

Let me tell you about cloud nine

Cloud nine, you can be what you wanna be 

You ain't got no responsibility 

And every man, every man is free

And you're a million miles from reality 

I wanna say I love the life I live

And I'm gonna live the life I love

Up here on cloud nine

I'm riding high on cloud nine

You're as free as a bird in flight

There's no difference between day and night

It's a world of love and harmony 

You're a million miles from reality, cloud nine
