I am on cloud nine
Everything is just so fine
I'm smiling inside my head
All the happiness in this world is mine.
My mind is so excited to see
What other pleasures the world has for me
Every turn brings a new set of surprises
I've got so many, I'll share some with thee.
But why aren't the people around me gay
Didn't they get to chose their own way
What event happened in their lives
That didn't let the merriness stay?
Will I also become one in that crowd
Will my pains became more loud
Will my joy turn into depression
Will my gaiety be buried in the shroud??
