Alexis Korner And Steve Marriott - Get Off Of My Cloud - Live 1975





"Get Off of My Cloud" is a song by the English rock band the Rolling Stones. It was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards for a single to follow the successful "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction". Recorded in Hollywood, California, in early September 1965, the song was released September in the United States and October in the United Kingdom.


The Stones have said that the song is a reaction to their suddenly greatly enhanced popularity and deals with their aversion to people's expectations of them after the success of "Satisfaction". Richards commented: "'Get off of My Cloud' was basically a response to people knocking on our door asking us for the follow-up to 'Satisfaction' ... We thought 'At last. We can sit back and maybe think about events'. Suddenly there's the knock at the door and of course what came out of that was 'Get off of My Cloud'".

Lyrics


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 I live in an apartment on the 99th floor of my block And I sit at home lookin' out my window imagining the world has stopped Then in flies a guy that's all dressed up just like Union Jack He says, "I've won five pounds if I've got his kind of detergent pack" 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 Telephone is ringing, I say, "Hi, it's me. Who is there on the line?" And then a voice says, "Hello, how are you?" "Well, I guess I'm doin' fine" And then she says, "It's 3 AM, don't you people ever wanna go to bed? Just brcause you feel so good, do you have to drive me out of my head?" 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, don't hang around 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, don't hang around
