Get Off My Cloud Lyrics - The Rolling Stones

Review The Song (2)

(M. Jagger/K. Richards)

I live in an apartment on the 99th floor of my block
And I sit at home lookin' out the window imagining the world has stopped
Then in flies a guy who's all dressed up just like 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 3 AM, there's too much noise, don't you people ever wanna go to
Just 'cause you feel so good, do you have to drive me out of my head?"


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 mornin the parkin tickets were just like flags stuck on my windscreen.

Get offa my cloud too! | Reviewer: Ziggy Zagetta | 8/25/14

Do you think that the protagonist in this song resents intrusions upon a drug-induced "cloud"? Or does "cloud" simply refer to his high-altitude vantage point (the 99th floor of a high-rise apartment building)? We may never know.
Either way, the song appeals to me because my autism induces me to prefer solitude, even though my job has me on stage in front of an audience. I just got back from performing this song in a hospital. The geriatric crowd went wild! They were all shouting back Hey! HEY!! You! YOU!! Get offa my cloud! with the same enthusiasm that you will find at any rock concert.
So remember what the Blues Brothers said: "Buy all the blues records that you can, because fifty years from now, they will be available only in the classical record section of your local library."

good job! | Reviewer: andge | 6/6/10

no one else seems to get the plual "flags" stuck on my the wind-screen. mostly accurate, though it's "in flies a guy who's all dressed up just like A union jack" (a british flag)(superman's blue cape, red tights). and doesn't the phone lyric use the phrase "hi-ho" in there somewhere. (a voice says hi-ho, hello how are you ...)
