Just pic - ture a pent - house way up in the sky,

     D             Bm7             DM7        Dm6
With hin - ges on chim - neys for stars to go by,

A sweet slice of Hea - ven for just you and I

When we're a - lone. 

     A9          A           AM7             F#m
From all of so - ci - e - ty, we'll stay a - loof

And live in pro - pri - e - ty there on the roof.

Two hea - ven - ly her - mits we will be in truth

To keep love and ro - mance for - ev - er a - live

In view of the Hud - son just o - ver the drive,

A    Bm7-5 Dm6   A
When we're  a - lone.
