GET OFF OF MY CLOUD
(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

I live in an apartment on the ninety-ninth floor of my block
And I sit at home looking out the window
Imagining the world has stopped
Then in flies a guy who's all dressed up like a Union Jack
And says, I've won five pounds if I have his kind of detergent pack

I said, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd
On my cloud, baby

The telephone is ringing
I say, "Hi, it's me. Who is it there on the line?"
A voice says, "Hi, hello, how are you
Well, I guess I'm doin' fine"
He says, "It's three a.m., there's too much noise
Don't you people ever wanna go to bed?
Just 'cause you feel so good, do you have
To drive me out of my head?"

I said, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd
On my cloud baby

I was sick and tired, fed up with this
And decided to take a drive downtown
It was so very quiet and peaceful
There was nobody, not a soul around
I laid myself out, I was so tired and I started to dream
In the morning the parking tickets were just like
A flag stuck on my window screen

I said, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd
On my cloud

Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
Don't hang around, baby, two's a crowd

You were flying over Scotland. No one seems to stop here, they just keep flying over.
 
the Clouds look like you could play leap frog on them! :)

That looks like Cliff Morrow waving at the plane just near the center.
 
Wow! Peter has good eyes to see Cliff down there!! LOL

I have no idea where you are but it's a lovely picture!!
 
Not Scotland, Guys! So no cigar.

Ireland? It looks very green.
 
Dear Jim...I am so sorry that I have not gotten down here to see you lately, but when I just saw you on Jel's site and heard you singing , I thought that I would get down here and ask you a favor.
Well you know Pigrim David don't you of pilgrim scribblings?
Well tomorrow is his nephew, Mike Fisher's birthday.
Could you use you singing talents and go and sing him a tune at the Pilgrim' site..
David Fisher would really appreciate it.....From Terry....give Adi and Amber a hug for me!!
 
That's Ireland alright. Thanks Cheyene, for ending this. Now--pretty soon--I can blog again, just got to dig in my resources a little more.
