Up On The Roof

Up On The Roof

Carole KIng

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
I get away from the hustle and crowd
And all that rat race noise down on the street

On the roof's the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Oh, 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

Right smack dab in the middle of town
I found a paradise that's trouble-proof
So if this world starts getting you down
There's room enough for two, up on the roof
Up on the roof, everything is all right
Up on the roof, oh, come on, baby
Up on the roof
Everything is all right
Everything is all right
Everything is all right
Up on the roof
