Callin' out around the world
Are you ready for a brand new beat?
Summer's here and the time is right
For dancin' in the street

They're dancin' in Chicago
(In the street)
Down in New Orleans
(Dancin' in the street)
In New York City

All we need is music, sweet music
They'll be music, ev'rywhere
They'll be swing an swayin'
And records playin'
Dancin-a in the street

Ooh, it doesn't matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
So come on, every guy
Grab a girl, ev'rywhere around the world

They'll be dancin'
They're dancin' in the street
This is an invitation, across the nation
A chance for folks to meet

They'll be laugh an singin'
An music swingin'
Dancin-a in the street
Philadelphia, PA.
Baltimore and D.C., now
Can't forget the Motor City

All we need is music, sweet music
They'll be music, everywhere
They'll be swing an swayin'
And records playin'
Dancin-a in the street

Ooh, it doesn't matter
What you wear
Just as long as you are there
So come on, every guy
Grab a girl, ev'rywhere around the world

They're dancin'
They're dancin' in the street
Way down in L.A., ev'ry state
They're dancin' in the street

Let's form a big strong line
Get in time
We're dancin' in the street
Across the ocean, blue
Me and you

FADES:
We're dancin' in the.

~
