or
Sutton Foster

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 don't bother me

So when I come home feeling tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet
I get far away from the hustling crowds
And all that rat race noise down in the street

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