[ Em7 G/A (D A/D D G/A A D)] On the roof, it's peaceful as can be, [ G A G/B A Em7 (D/F# G6 A7)] And there the world below don't bother me, no, no. [D A/d Bm7 F#m7 Em7 G/A] So when I come home feeling tired and beat, [ D Bm7 F#m7 ] I'll go up where the air is fresh and sweet, [ Em7 G/A (D A/D D G/D A) ] I'll get far away from the hustling crowd, [ D Bm7 F#m7 ] And all the rat race noise down in the street. [ Em7 G/a (D A/d D G/a A D) ] On the roof, that's the only place I know, [ G A G/B A Em7 (D/F# G6 A7) ] Where you just have to wish to make it so. [ D A/d Bm7 F#m7 Em7] Let's go up on the roof. [ tacet ] [ D A/D D A/B Bm7 A/B Bm7 Em7 D/f# G A7 D A/D D G/A A D ] At night the stars put on A show for free [ G A G/B A Em7 (D/F# G6 A7) ] And, darling, you can share it all with me. [ D A/d Bm7 F#m7 Em7 ] That's what I said. Keep on telling you that [ G/a ] right smack dab in the middle of town, [ D Bm7 F#m7 ] I found A paradise that's trouble proof. [ Em7 G/A D (A/D D G/D A) ] And if this old world starts a getting you down, [ D Bm7 F#m7 ] There's room enough for two up on the roof. [ Em7 G/a ] [ D A/D D A/B Bm7 A/B Bm7 Em7 D/f# G A D ]
