“Up on the Roof” Lyrics

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

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

Let me tell you now, when I come home feeling tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (Up on the roof)
I get away from the hustlin’ crowd
And all that rat race noise down in the street (Up on the roof)

On the roof, the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let’s go up on the roof

[break]

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

I keep a-tellin’ you right smack dab in the middle of town
I found a paradise that’s trouble-proof (Up on the roof)
And if this world starts gettin’ you down
There’s room enough for two up on the roof (Up on the roof)
Up on the roof (Up on the roof)
Yeah, up on the roof, ah, baby, yeah (Up on the roof)
Up on the roof (Up on the roof)
Up on the roof (Up on the roof)
Up on the roof (Up on the roof)
Up on the roof (Up on the roof)
Up on the roof (Up on the roof)
