"Above the Clouds" as written by and Paul John Weller....
We flyin' high above the clouds again

Lookin' down from the clouds

At them holes that I see

Never knowin' to put down your weight

Only thing they know that time be leaving, and it's seven O

Maybe if it was an 'igher day

Any man, any girl, everybody in the world, time freeze

They'll be sippin' on the wine again

Poppin' champagne bottle

Gettin' blunted till my eyes they don't see

Maybe if we were that high again

Taking a trip 'round the world

sittin' in, and then mine goes up a tree

If you never ask me why again

Is them Endo smoke better to be smoked up than juggle fifty


It's Philly love

Just drinkin' rum

And getting high

Listen to dub

Grip them pint

Get them buds

Spark the light

And get the girl


It's in your blood

Just drinkin' rum

And getting high

Listen to dub

Grip the pint

Get them buds

Spark that light

Fire it up


We flyin' high above the clouds again

Lookin' down from the clouds

At them holes that I see

You be comin' our direction

DEA, don't try, they intercept up, blazin' all of our weed

Instead of droppin bombs on Normandy

Fire one long artillery, smokin' up the enemy

Now we steppin' up an Irie beat

Take your shit, don't hurt, this is herb, yo we be puffin' them green

Now we live the Manu Chao way

King of the Congo, livin' in the jungle

Get hyptnotized like an Egyptian, whoa whoa whoa whoa


It's Philly love

Just drinkin' rum

And getting high

Listen to dub

Grip the pint

Get them buds

Spark the light

Fire it up


It's in the blood

Just drinkin' rum

And getting high

Listen to dub

Grip the pint

Get them buds

Spark the light

Fire it up

    General Commenti think this song is about getting so fucked up that you have an overall feeling of being above the clouds. Getting really drunk and stoned will put you there for sure

    General CommentLike all of their songs basically, this is about how great it feels to be fucked up.
    They feel as if they are in the clouds, and they don't want anybody to fuck with them or their weed. Which I think is why they say "Take your shit, don't hurt, this is herb, yo we be puffin' them green"
