Artist/Band: Marvin Gaye
Lyrics for Song: Cloud Nine
Lyrics for Album: Soul Legends [2006]



The childhood part of my life wasn't very pretty

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

It was a one-room shack we slept in, the children beside me

We hardly had enough food or rooms, it was a hard time

Needed somethin' to ease my troubled mind



Ooh listen, father didn't know the meaning of work

He disrespected Mama and treated her slightly

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

The first thing, downhearted, 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 now tell me

They say, "Give yourself a chance

And don't let life pass you by"

But the world around you 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

Let me tell you about cloud nine

(Cloud nine)

You can be what you wanna be

(Cloud nine)

You ain't got no responsibility



(Cloud nine)

Yeah, every man, every man is free

(Cloud nine)

You're a million miles from reality

(Reality, up up and away)

I wanna say up higher, cloud nine



I wanna say I love the life I live

And I'm gonna live the life I love

Up here on cloud nine

Uh uh uh uh, 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, up up and away)

I wanna say up higher



(Cloud nine)

You can be what you wanna 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 wanna be
