The Mischief of Cloud 6

(I say yeah, yeah)
You′re not a number nine (I say yeah, yeah)
Little cloud of mine (I say yeah, yeah)
You're blocking the sun (I say yeah, yeah)
It′s a troubling sign

(I say yeah, yeah)
I can't understand (I say yeah, yeah)
Why I'm at your command (I say yeah, yeah)
If only six was nine (I say yeah, yeah)
This ain′t what I planned

Walk the dog in a park
We did it in the dark
But now it looks like rain
And the girls go awry

(I say yeah, yeah)
Hanging tears out to dry (I say yeah, yeah)
It′s a tactical warning (I say yeah, yeah)
Not a single fair morning (I say yeah, yeah)
Ever catching my eyes

Hey hey, what I say
You gotta, you gotta
Hey hey, what I say
You gotta, gotta, gotta
Hey hey, what I say
You gotta get away
Hey hey, what I say

Gypsy maiden of the meadow
Painted a number on my palm
Her soft whisper caressing my ear
"You'll never leave cloud nine"

I can′t understand
Why I'm at your command
If only six was nine
This ain′t what I planned

I am a black cloud man
Yeah, you work on your tan
Your jealous dedication
Making things worse
I can't even converse
To my frustration
The phones took a vacation
They know I′m cursed

Hey hey, what I say
You gotta, you gotta
Hey hey, what I say
You gotta, gotta, gotta
Hey hey, what I say
You gotta get away
Hey hey, what I say
