...up on the roof and listen to The Miracles echo through the alley down below.
Rod Stewart feat. The Temptations', "The Motown Song"
Bring home some of your own hometown records
Bring over some of your own Motown Records
Only if we listen to the miracles echo to the Allen down below.
On the roof and listen to The Miracles echo to the alley down below.
Pretty woman son and you're almost out of records.
Bring over some of your old Motown records.
Put your fingers in the window and they're gold
Put your speakers in the window and we'll go
So bring home some of your old, Motown madness
So bring over some of your old Motown records
Up on the roof and listen to The Miracles echo through the alley-alley-o
Up on the roof and listen to The Miracles echo through the alley down below
