Up On the Roof - Gerry Goffin, Carole King

    When this old world starts a getting me down
    And people are just too much for me to face
    I'll 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, no, no
    So when I come home feeling tired and beat
    I'll go up where the air is fresh and sweet
    I'll get far away from the hustling crowd
    And all the rat-race noise down in the street

    On the roof, that's the only place I know
    Look at the city, baby
    Where you just have to wish to make it so
    Let's go up on the roof

    And at night the stars they put on a show for free
    And, darling, you can share it all with me
    That's what I said
    Keep on telling you

    That right smack dab in the middle of town
    I found a paradise that's troubleproof
    And if this old world starts a getting you down
    There's room enough for two
    Up on the roof...
