"Little Cloud" as written by and Mike Heron....
How sweet to be a cloud, floating in the blue.

Lying awake, late the other night,
Heard above me a trembling.
I looked up, it was a little cloud,
From which a gold string was dangling.
You know, I gave the string a little pull,
Just to see what was on the other end.
Just then a voice came down to me, says,
"Hey, now, don't you want to be my friend,

And float with me to distant lands, wondrous and fair?
Float with me to distant lands, wondrous and fair?

You see I'm just a happy little cloud,
I laugh and float and sing my song.
But the other clouds don't like me none,
They say I am behaving very wrong.
You see a cloud's supposed to be sad,
To cry and weep and tear its hair and all.
And don't matter how hard I try,
I can't get the first little tear to fall."

"And float with me to distant lands, wondrous and fair,
Float with me to distant lands, wondrous and fair."

I said, "Hey, I like you little cloud,
You are a nice little fellow, yes."
"You making some, kind of a joke?", said the cloud,
"Now can't you see I'm wearing such a pretty dress?
You see I am the prettiest little chick cloud,
That you'd find anywhere up above.
I just dropped in on you awhile,
To see if you could give me some kind of love."

"And float with me to distant lands, wondrous and fair,
Float with me to distant lands wondrous and fair."

Just then the chief cloud come into view,
And says, "Hey, girl, now what you think you're doing there?
I told you so many times before,
You just don't seem at all to care.
You know you should be floating up above, now
Don't let me catch you down here again."

And as my cloud pulled out of view,
There come falling down a gentle shower of rain.
Happy rain come falling down
Red, green, blue and golden.
And every drop, as it fell, it smiled
And, throwing back its head, began singing;

"Oh float with me to distant lands, wondrous and fair,
Float with me to distant lands, wondrous and fair."

    General CommentA charming song about being yourself. In this case that involves looking on the brights side even when someone categorised your mission as being sad. In the end the cloud conforms, as we all must to some extent, but does this with their own individual touch.
