Up On The Roof

Whenever I see the puppies way up on our roof,  I’m reminded of the song “Up On The Roof” by the Drifters; they were one of my father’s favourite singing group. puppies on roofThe lyrics ♪
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. puppies on roofOn the roof, it’s peaceful as can be, and there the world below can’t bother me. Let me tell you now. puppy on roofWhen 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). puppies on roofOn 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). At night the stars put on a show for free and, darling, you can share it all with me. I keep a-tellin’ you. puppies on roof 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.
