OldSchoolBill Up On My Roof
First recorded by Little Eva, this breezy summertime song evokes the high-rise apartments in American cities where urban dwellers could escape from the stresses of daily living by climbing onto the tar "beaches" on the roofs of their buildings.
There is an air show across the street from my house so I went up on my roof to get away from all the stress of being OldSchoolBill Aloha Keith you know the feeling.
 When this ol' 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
I get away from the hustling crowd
and all that rat race noise down in the street
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
At night the stars put on a show for free
and darlin' you can share it all with me
I keep on tellin' you-a right smack dab in the middle of town
I found a paradise that's trouble proof
and if this world starts getting you down
there's room enough for two up on the roof
