Dancing in the Street

Calling out around the world
Are you ready for a brand new beat?
Summer’s here and the time is right
For dancing in the street
They’re dancing in Chicago (dancing in the street),
Down in New Orleans (dancing in the street),
In New York City (dancing in the street)

All we need is music (sweet music),
Sweet music (sweet music)
There’ll be music everywhere (everywhere)
There’ll be swinging and swaying
And records playing
And dancing in the street

Oh, it doesn’t matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
So, come on, every guy, grab a girl
Everywhere around the world
There’ll be dancing
They’re dancing in the street
(Dancing in the street)

This is an invitation
Across the nation
A chance for folks to meet
There’ll be laughing, singing
And music swinging
And dancing in the street
Philadelphia, PA (dancing in the street),
Baltimore and DC now (dancing in the street),
Can’t forget the Motor City (dancing in the street)

All we need is music (sweet music),
Sweet music (sweet music)
There’ll be music everywhere (everywhere)
There’ll be swinging and swaying
And records playing
And dancing in the street

Oh, it doesn’t matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
So, come on, every guy, grab a girl
Everywhere around the world
They’re dancing
They’re dancing in the street
(Dancing in the street)

Way down in LA, every day
They’re dancing in the street
(Dancing in the street)
Let’s start a big time now, get in time
With dancing in the street
(Dancing in the street)
Across the ocean blue, me and you
We’re dancing in the street
(Dancing in the street)
(fade out)
