"Upstairs In My House" as written by Colin Hay and Ronald Strykert....
No one knows what I can see and and what I see it pleases me on my roof
South Pacific hot sea pool, Coney Island amusement school for mispent youth
Its all in my own front yard, seagulls grazing in the park and foreshore
South-East wind pins back my ears, Luna Park lights up the years of painless days

I like it, upstairs in my house

Dealers selling junk and trash, people spend their hard earned cash on Sundays
Its quiet when they fade away, Westgate Bridge breakes up the day, into red sky

I like it, upstairs in my house, upstairs in my house

No one knows what I can see and what I see it pleases me on my roof

I like it, upstairs in my house, upstairs in my house

    General CommentGreat song!

    I believe it is about how he likes watching all the aspects of the world nobody else sees.

    My InterpretationI have listened to this song since I was 13. It has always sounded delicious... And Colin Hay's voice sweetly pushes the feeling,

    It felt like the lyrics describe, looking out over the boardwalk with people, with red sky as the evening closes... It's a dream I wish I could have every day. It's simple enough, but how many people have it...?

    Man, I wish I had that home, lived there to the end my days... Dreamy, the way everyone's life should be...
