From the 1975 vinyl album titled “The Grass Roots” on the Haven label. The Grass Roots cover this Drifters hit. LYRICS: (Up on the roof) (Up on the roof) When this old world starts getting me down And people are just too much for me to face (Up on the roof) I climb way up to the top of the stairs And all my cares just drift right into space (Up on the roof) 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 feeling tired and beat I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (Up on the roof) I get away from the hustling crowds And all that rat race noise down in the street (Up on the roof) On the roof’s 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 Right smack dab in the middle of town I 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 roof (Up on the roof) Oh, come on, baby (Up on the roof) Oh, come on, honey (Up on the roof) Everything is all right (Up on the roof) Video Rating: / 5 Related PostsBaby Elephant Dok Rak Playing With Dry Grass RoofHow to Grow Grass on a House RoofArtificial Grass AirDrain Drainage Roof Top Balcony Turf Pro Solutions 1[LIVESTREAM] #5 – Grass Roof TempleRural Homes Have Grass Roof […]

    One of the best versions of this I have ever heard…also when I heard "It's a Cryin' Shame" back in '75 I thought "this will be a big hit", but they never released it. A perfect followup to "Mamacita" which should have been a bigger hit.

    (Up on the roof)
    (Up on the roof)

    When this old world starts getting me down
    And people are just too much for me to face (Up on the roof)
    I climb way up to the top of the stairs
    And all my cares just drift right into space (Up on the roof)
    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 feeling tired and beat
    I go up where the air is fresh and sweet (Up on the roof)
    I get away from the hustling crowds
    And all that rat race noise down in the street (Up on the roof)
    On the roof's 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
    Right smack dab in the middle of town
    I 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 roof (Up on the roof)
    Oh, come on, baby (Up on the roof)
    Oh, come on, honey (Up on the roof)
    Everything is all right (Up on the roof)
