    Re: get off my cloud

    I guess you mean the lyrics of the song by the Rolling Stones, don't you?
    If that is the case, I would kindly suggest you to read through the lyrics, because you will get the meaning right away.


    GET OFF OF MY CLOUD
    (M. Jagger/K. Richards)

    I live in an apartment on the ninety-ninth floor of my block
    And I sit at home looking out the window
    Imagining the world has stopped
    Then in flies a guy who's all dressed up like a Union Jack
    And says, I've won five pounds if I have his kind of detergent pack

    (Chorus)
    I said, Hey! You! Get off of my cloud
    Don't hang around 'cause two's a crowd
    On my cloud, baby

    The telephone is ringing
    I say, "Hi, it's me. Who is it there on the line?"
    A voice says, "Hi, hello, how are you
    Well, I guess I'm doin' fine"
    He says, "It's three a.m., there's too much noise
    Don't you people ever wanna go to bed?
    Just 'cause you feel so good, do you have
    To drive me out of my head?"

    Chorus

    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

    Chorus

    ( He wants to be alone in his world, unaware of the world around him. He wants to live in the illusory world in which he is king.)

    ....and then there was the Scottish sheep farmer who shouted at a neighbor: "Hey, McLeod! Get off of my ewe!"
