TIGER & TINGA STEWART – UPON THE ROOF

Now here comes for the first time
Man like Tinga Stewart
Along with, I, Tiger
Yeah!
Can’t you see?
Come down Mr. Percy Sledge

When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
Upon the roof
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space (Lord)
Upon the roof
Hey, hey
Hey, hey
Weh we gone?
Weh we gone?

Upon the roof
Way upon the roof
Me and mi girl inna ecstasy
Lot of loving, and nuff-nuff kissing
No ill-treating ‘causе you know we’re caring

On the roof is pеaceful as can be
And there, the world below can’t bother me
Let me tell you now

Sweet for your sweet, and sugar fi your sugar
Honey, I will never, ever let you go
Stick by you and stick by you true
Come in papa Tinga ’cause you know wha’ fi do

When I come home feeling tired and weak
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet
Upon the roof
I get away from the hustlin’ crowd
And all that rat race noise down in the street (Lord of mercy, mercy, mercy)
Upon the roof
Come now!

Well mi say, rock and move your feet
Dance pon the street
Me and mi lover upstairs and know how fi do it
Yes, a papa Tinga, and also Tiger
Two of we together, man, we big ’bout yah
Tinga!

On the roof, the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Just go, upon the roof

Upon the roof
Upon the roof
Me and mi girl giving lots of love proof
Me and her a star, and me and her a war
Yes papa Tinga drive him daughter car
Gwan papa Tiger, mi say, skank how you want

At night the stars put on a show for free (For free, for free)
And darling you can share it all with me
I keep on telling you

Upon the roof
Upon the roof
Me and mi girl giving solid love proof
Me and mi girlie love ecstasy
Yes, Tinga, and I, Tiger T
Come in papa Tinga, you fit everybody

Right smack down in the middle of town
I found a paradise I struggle through
Upon the roof
And if this world starts getting you down
There’s room enough for two
Upon the roof
Upon the, upon the—
‘Cause me say

Upon the roof
Upon the roof
Dance with the Tiger, upon the roof
Dance with the Tinga, upon the roof
Come down Percy Sledge, because you a the love-, ooh

When this whole world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
Upon the roof
Upon the -, upon the –
But it done deh?
