Rod Stewart – Cloud Nine lyrics

Darling, part of my life, it wasn't very pretty
See, I was born and raised in the slums of the city
It was a one room shack and slept 10 other children
Beside me, we hardly had enough food or room to sleep

It was hard times, I needed some thing
To ease my troubled mind

Listen, my father didn't know the meaning of work
He disrespected mama and treated us like dirt
I left home seeking a job that I never did find
Depressed and down hearted, I took to cloud nine

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

Folks down there tell me
They say, "Give your self a chance
Son, don't let life pass you by
But the world of reality is a rat race"

Where only the strongly 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

Let me tell you about cloud nine, cloud nine
You can be what you want to be
(Cloud nine)
You ain't got no responsibilities
And every man, every man is free
(Cloud nine)

You're a million miles from reality, reality
I wanna say upper, higher, upper, up, up and away
I wanna say I love the life I live
And I'm gonna live the life I love up here on cloud nine

I, I, I, I, I, I'm riding high on cloud nine

Your as free as a bird in flight
(Cloud nine)
There's no difference between day and night
(Cloud nine)
It's a world of love and harmony
(Cloud nine)
You're a million miles from reality, reality wanna say

Upper, higher, upper, up, up and away
Cloud nine, you can be what you wanna be
(Cloud nine)
You ain't got no responsibilities
(Cloud nine)
Every man and his mind is free

You're a million miles from reality
You can be what you wanna be
I'm feelin' fine on cloud nine
