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 9 I'm doing fine up here on cloud 9 Listen one more time I'm doing fine up here on cloud 9 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 9 Let me tell you about cloud 9 Cloud 9, 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 9 I'm riding high on cloud 9 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 9
