    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 feelin' tired and beat
    I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (up on the roof)
    I get away from the hustling 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 (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 a-tellin' you

    Right smack dab in the middle of town
    I've found a paradise that's trouble proof (up on the roof)
    And if this world starts getting you down
    There's room enough for two
    Up 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)

    Everything is all right (up on the roof)
