James Taylor

When this old world starts a getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
I'm gonna climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares they drift right into space

Oh, on the roof, it's peaceful as can be
And there the world below, it don't bother me
No, no, no, no

So when I come home feeling tired and beat
I got to go up where the air is fresh and sweet for me now
I'm far away from the hustling crowd
And all that rat race noise down in the street

Oh, on the roof, that's the only place that I know
Look at the city, baby
Where you just have to wish to make it
So let's go up on my roof

And at night the stars, they put on a show for free
And darling, you can share, share it all with me
Hear what I say
Keep on telling you that

Right smack dab in the middle of town
Well, I've found a paradise
Just about trouble proof I know now
And if this old world starts a getting you down
Well, there's room enough for two up on my roof

Up on my roof, up on my roof
You've got to come on up
Bring it on up, come on up, come on up

Drop what you're doing tonight
And climb up the stairs with me and see, baby
We got the stars up above us and the city lights below
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Up on my roof, up on a roof
