I live on an apartment on the 99th 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 just like a Union Jack
He says I've won 5 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
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 doing fine
He says, "It's 3 AM, there's too much noise - don't you people ever want to go to bed?
Just 'cause you feel so good, do you have to drive me out of my head?"

Yeah

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 windscreen
