Callin' 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 (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 sweet sweet sweet music)
There'll be music everywhere (sweet music everywhere)
There'll be swingin' and swayin' and records playing and (oooohhhhh)
Dancing in the street (dancing in the street)

Oh it doesn't matter what you wear (ooohhh)
Just as long as you are there
So come on every guy grab a girl
Everywhere around the world
They'll be dancing, dancing in the street (dancing in the street [x2])

This is an invitation across the nation (ooohhh)
A chance for folks to meet

There'll be laughing,and singing, and music swinging
And Dancing in the street (dancing in the street)
Philadelphia, PA (dancing in the street)
Baltimore and D.C. now (dancing in the street)
Can't forget the Motor City (dancing in the street)
All we need is music, sweet music (sweet sweet sweet sweet music)
There'll be music everywhere (sweet music everywhere)
There'll be swingin' (swingin') and and swayin' (swayin'), and records playing
And dancing in the street (dancing in the street)

Oh it doesn't matter what you wear (ooohhh)
Just as long as you are there
So come on every guy grab a girl
Everywhere around the world

There'll be dancing, (ooohh)
Dancing in the street (dancing in the street)
Way down in L.A. (dancing in the street)
Every day (ooohh)
Dancing in the street (dancing in the street)

Let's form a big strong line (dancing in the street)
Get in time (dancing in the street)
We're dancing in the street (dancing in the street)
Across the ocean blue, me and you (dancing in the street)
We're dancing in the street
