TEMPTATIONS


Cloud Nine Lyrics

Childhood part of my life
Wasn't very pretty, see
(Boom, boom-boom, boom)
I was born and raised
In the slums of the city
(Boom, boom-boom, boom)

It was a one-room shack
That slept ten other children beside me
(Boom, boom-boom, boom)
We hardly had enough food
Or room to sleep
(Boom, boom-boom, boom)

It was hard times
I needed somethin' to ease my troubled mind
Ooh listen

My father didn't know the meaning of work
(Boom, boom-boom, boom)
He disrespected mama
And treated us like dirt
(Boom, boom-boom, boom)

I left home seeking a job
That I never did find
(Boom, boom-boom, boom)
Depressed and down-hearted
And I took to cloud nine
(Boom, boom-boom, boom)

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"
(Woo, woo, woo-oo)
But the world, around you's a rat race
Where only the strongest survive

It's a dog-eat-dog world
And that ain't no lie
(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 'bout cloud nine
Cloud nine
You can be what you want to be
Cloud Nine

You ain't got no responsibility
Cloud nine
And every man, every man is free
Cloud nine
And you're a million miles from reality
Reality

I wanna' stay up
Higher
Up, up, up and away
Cloud nine

I wanna' say I love the life I live
And I'm gonna live the life I love
Or be on cloud nine
I, I, I, I, I, I'm ridin' high
On cloud nine

You're 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

I wanna' stay up
Higher
Up, up, up and away
Cloud nine

You can be what you want to be
Cloud nine
You ain't got no responsibility
Cloud nine

Every man in his mind is free
Cloud nine
You're a million miles from reality
Cloud nine
You can be what you want to be
