They wish us luck but they think we're just dreaming

Listen, I got plans for us playing like a skip on a record
           D              F#m
Through my head all night long
            F#m                E/G#              A          Bm
But when we walk that darkened stairway and step out on the roof
C#m               D                E7sus2
I know what we're feeling can't be wrong, ah yeah

We'll put the speakers in the window and we'll go
F#m                           E
On the roof and listen to the Miracles
                 Bm
Echo through the alley down below
 
 
Let the Temptations sing it one time

F#m                           E
On the roof and listen to the Miracles
                 Bm
Echo through the alley down below, oh yeah
