Cloud Nine (極度狂喜) - The Temptations (誘惑演唱組)

Childhood part of my life it wasn't very pretty


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 I needed something

To ease my troubled mind



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


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


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


I wanna say I love the life


Love the life


Up here


On 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


I I I I I I'm riding high high


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

Cloud nine

You would be what I wanna be


Cloud cloud cloud cloud nine
