    Lyrics

    [Verse 1: John Legend]
    All this trouble in this here town
    All this shit going down
    When will they focus, on this
    Streets ride up with the TV crews
    Look ma, we on the news
    But they didn't notice
    Before this
    They float above the city lights
    Forget the truth inhale the lies
    Just enjoy the show
    They see us reaching for the sky
    Just ignore the ___? survive

    [Chorus: John Legend]
    Maybe we should go
    Go to the penthouse floor (let's go, let's go, let's go)
    Go to the penthouse floor (let's go, let's go, let's go)
    Let's ride the elevator, they can't keep us out no more
    Go to the penthouse floor (let's go, let's go, let's go)
    Penthouse floor

    [Verse 2: John Legend]
    All that bubbly all that wine
    Oh man look at the times
    Didn't they notice, notice
    Only future I can see, ain't what it used to be
    And I didn't know this, I didn't know this
    Once you're above the city lights
    Won't want to spend another night, down there on your own
    The holding on is made for us
    The altitude is dangerous, but we ain't going home

    [Chorus: John Legend]
    Go to the penthouse floor (let's go, let's go, let's go)
    Go to the penthouse floor (let's go, let's go, let's go)
    Let's ride the elevator, it's what we've been waiting for
    Can't keep us out no more (let's go, let's go, let's go)

    [Verse 3: Chance The Rapper]
    I heard this old joke once, it was like, uh
    Knock knock, who's there, it's us, us who?
    Just us, who dis? Just playin'
    Just me, new phone, new hair, new era
    I'm in the penthouse, baby
    Handpicked from bad apples and bad eggs
    Held back, I had to grab crab legs
    And then there were only but a few
    Conversations held with patience, what a party, what a view
    What a dress, what a song
    What a beautiful time
    My folks downstairs still waiting in line
    They never been in these rooms
    Never stayed with these folks
    Never laughed at the news, never hated these jokes
    So as I fly in my suit, in a group, undercover
    Forcing a new smile, he tells me another
    He said "What happened to the boy that climbed up the trunk?"
    Then he pushed me off the top and said "Jump, nigga jump!"

    [Bridge: John Legend]
    Oh don't bring me down I need a room in the clouds
    I wanna get there babe, I wanna elevate
    Oh my favourite mix
    A little ignorance and bliss
    In the penthouse babe, go to the penthouse

    [Chorus: John Legend]
    Go to the penthouse floor (let's go, let's go, let's go)
    Go to the penthouse floor (let's go, let's go, let's go)
    Let's ride the elevator, it's what we've been waiting for
    We'll te
