Up on the roof
Up on the roof

When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face (Up on the roof)
I'll climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space (Up on the roof)

On the roof it's peaceful as can be
And there the world below don't bother me

Let me tell ya now

So when I come home feelin' tired and beat
I'll go up where the air is fresh and sweet (Up on the roof)
I'll get away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat race noise down in the street (Up on the roof)

On the roof that's the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
(Lets go up on the roof)


At night the stars put on a show for free
And darling you can share it all with me

I keep on telling you
Right smack dab in the middle of town
I've found a paradise that's trouble proof (Up on the roof)
And if this old world starts getting you down
There's room enough for two up on the roof (Up on the roof)
Up on the roof
Oh come on baby
Oh come on on it
Everything is all right
