Who said I was original?
Who said I was allowed,
To sing as if I really sing, to write as if I really write
Who said that I could suddenly get up from underneath and walk away completely stumbling between each breath I breathe
And walk away stumbling sublimely between each breath I breathe
Who said I was allowed?

I once flew by a real tall wall with ivy all around
And saw two eyes I really liked
And saw two ears I really liked
And saw two lips I liked as well
And saw a face that I could love,
But it was far so far and cold above
Inside that big above
But it was far and far and cold inside that big above

Dont ask for their permission
Theyll never say that youre allowed
Be like a cloud
Cause youre no worse than a cloud
Dont ask for their permission
Theyll never say that youre allowed
Be like a cloud
Cause youre no worse than a cloud

And so I walked to everywhere
And stopped in every town
The big ones with the little pond
The small ones with no pond at all
And though Ive eaten dirt before
Ive never grown to like the taste
And I prefer on any day a big green apple in its place
And Id prefer on any day a big green apple in its place

Dont ask for their permission
Theyll never say that youre allowed
Be like a cloud
Cause youre no worse than a cloud
Dont ask for their permission
Theyll never say that youre allowed
Be like a cloud
Cause youre no worse than a could

And so I closed my eyes and walked
And when I opened them again
I knew the clouds had snowed on me, and then they poured on me some rain
There stood this cold icicle the very shape and form of me
I tried to cry but couldnt
So instead, I made myself a cup of tea
I tried to cry but couldnt
So instead, I made myself a cup of tea

Dont ask for their permission
Theyll never say that youre allowed
Be like a cloud
Cause youre no worse than a cloud
Dont ask for their permission
Theyll never say that youre allowed
Be like a cloud
Cause youre no worse than a cloud

So who said I was original
Who said I was a cloud
To rain as if I really rain
To snow as if I really snow
You know the fastest thing in this world is the speed of snow into your eyes as you walk off sublimely stumbling, sublimely slipping on the ice
As you walk off sublimely stumbling, sublimely slipping on the ice

Dont ask for their permission
Theyll never say that youre allowed
Be like a cloud
Cause youre no worser than a cloud
Dont ask for their permission
Theyll never say that youre allowed
Be like a cloud
Be like a cloud
Be like a cloud
Be like a cloud
Be like a cloud
