“Hey Hey You You Get Off Of My Cloud”

Tribute to ‘Get Off Of My Cloud’ by The Rolling Stones (Photograph © Gretchen Bernet-Ward 2021)

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 window screen

I say, hey (hey), you (you)

Get off of my cloud

Hey (hey), you (you)

Get off of my cloud

Hey (hey), you (you)

Get off of my cloud

Don’t hang around ’cause two’s a crowd

On my cloud…

Third verse of The Rolling Stones original lyrics ‘Get Off Of My Cloud

Songwriters: Mick Jagger / Keith Richard

The Rolling Stones performed ‘Get Off Of My Cloud’ live on Australian TV in 1966 on Brian Henderson’s Bandstand. The Stones are so young, so pretty.  Check out the boys wearing ties and the girls sitting on seats tapping their toes, and the politely orchestrated screams. So much to love Gretchen Bernet-Ward
