From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Up_on_the_Roof_%28song%29:

"Up on the Roof" is a song written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King and recorded in 1962 by The Drifters. Released at the tail end of that year, the song became a big hit, reaching number 5 on the U.S. pop singles chart and number 4 on the U.S. R&B singles chart.

In addition to the hit appeal of the "second Drifters" lineup, "Up on the Roof" epitomized the urban romantic dream as presented by New York City Brill Building writers...

Up on the Roof

Written by Gerry Goffin (b. 11 Feb 1939) and Carole King (b. 09 Feb 1942)

Recorded by The Drifters, 1962 (Peaked at # 5 in 1963)

Later covered as minor Top 100 singles by The Cryan' Shames in 1968, by Laura Nyro in 1970,

Also covered as album tracks by co-songwriter Carole King in 1970 [Carole King Writer CD]
and by Neil Diamond in 1993 [Neil Diamond Up on the Roof CD].


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)

brief instrumental-chiefly strings

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)
FADE

Everything is all right (up on the roof)
