#128/365 – Up on the Roof


When this old world starts getting me downAnd people are just too much for me to faceI climb way up to the top of the stairsAnd all my cares just drift right into spaceOn the roof, it’s peaceful as can beAnd there the world below can’t bother meLet me tell you nowWhen I come home feelin’ tired and beatI go up where the air is fresh and sweet (up on the roof)I get away from the hustling crowdAnd all that rat-race noise down in the street (up on the roof)On the roof, the only place I knowWhere you just have to wish to make it soLet’s go up on the roof (up on the roof)brief instrumental-chiefly stringsAt night the stars put on a show for freeAnd, darling, you can share it all with meI keep a-tellin’ youRight smack dab in the middle of townI’ve found a paradise that’s trouble proof (up on the roof)And if this world starts getting you downThere’s room enough for twoUp on the roof (up on the roof)Up on the roo-oo-oof (up on the roof)Oh, come on, baby (up on the roof)Oh, come on, honey (up on the roof)[Fade]Everything is all right (up on the roof)
