When this old world starts a 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 don’t bother me.
Let me tell you now,
When I come home feeling tired and beat
I’ll go up where the air is fresh and sweet.
I’ll get far away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat race noise down in the street.
On the roof’s the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so.
Let’s 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
That right smack dab in the middle of town
I found a paradise that’s trouble proof.
And if this world starts a gettin’ you down,
There’s room enough for two up on the roof,
Way up on the roof.
