CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
Cloud Nine Dennis: The childhood part of my life
Wasn't very pretty, see...
Temptations: Boom, boom-boom, boom
Dennis: I was born and raised
In the slums of the city,
Temptations: Boom, boom-boom, boom
Dennis: It was a one-room shack
That slept ten other children beside me,
Temptations: Boom, boom-boom, boom
Dennis: We hardly enough food
Or room to sleep
Temptations: Boom, boom-boom, boom
Dennis: It was hard times...
I needed somethin' to ease my troubled mind

Dennis: Oooh listen...
My father didn't know the meaning of work
Temptations: Boom, boom-boom, boom
Dennis: He disrespected mama,
And treated us like dirt
Temptations: Boom, boom-boom, boom
Dennis: I left home seeking a job
That I never could find
Temptations: Boom, boom-boom, boom
Dennis: The pressure came down hard
And I took to cloud nine
Temptations: Boom, boom-boom, boom



Paul: I'm doing fine
Up here, on cloud nine
Dennis: A one more time
Paul: I'm doing fine
Up here, on cloud nine
Dennis: Folks down there tell me...

Dennis: They say give yourself a chance
And don't let life pass you by,
Temptations: Woo, woo, woo
Dennis: But the world, say, is a rat race
Where only the strongest survive,
It's a dog-eat-dog world
And that ain't no lie,
Temptations: Ain't no lie
Dennis: It ain't even safe no more
To walk the streets at night

Temptations: I'm doing fine
On cloud nine

Dennis: Let me tell 'bout cloud nine...
Temptations: Cloud nine
Paul: You can be what you want to be
Temptations: Cloud Nine
Dennis: You ain't got no responsibility
Temptations: Cloud Nine
Eddie: And every man, every man is free
Temptations: Cloud nine
Dennis: You're a million miles from reality
Paul: Reality

Temptations: I wanna' say up
Eddie and Otis: Higher
Temptations: Up and up,
Up and away

Temptations: Cloud nine

Eddie: I wanna' say I love the life I live,
And I'm going to live, the life I love
Or be on cloud nine...
I, I, I, I, I, I'm ridin' high
Temptations: On cloud nine

Dennis: You're as free as a burning flame
Temptations: Cloud nine
Melvin: There's no difference between day and night
Temptations: Cloud nine
Eddie: It's a world of love and harmony
Temptations: Cloud nine
Dennis: You're a million miles from reality
Paul: Reality

Temptations: I wanna' say up
Eddie and Otis: Higher
Temptations: Up and up, up and away

Temptations: Cloud Nine
Paul: You can be what you want to be, ah
Temptations: Cloud nine
Dennis: You ain't got no responsibility
Temptations: Cloud nine
Eddie: Every man in his mind is free
Temptations: Cloud nine
Dennis: You're a million miles from reality
Temptations: Cloud nine
Paul: You can be what you want to be

Temptations: all of them weave in and out with ad libs
and choruses of "Boom-booms"
