Chorus:
Just pic - ture a pent - house 'way up in the sky,  With hing - es on chim - neys for stars to go by,
A sweet slice of heav - en for just you and I when we're a - lone.
From all of so - ci - e - ty we'll stay a - loof,  And live in pro - pri - e - ty there on the roof,
Two heav - en - ly her - mits we will be in truth when we're a - lone.
We'll see life's mad pat - tern,  As we view old Man - hat - tan,
Then we can thank our luck - y stars,  That were liv - ing as we are.
In our lit - tle pent - house, we'll al - ways con - trive,  To keep love and ro - mance for - ev - er a - live,
In view of the Hud - son just o - ver the drive,  When we're a - lone.
