Calling out around the world
Are you ready for a brand new beat
Summer's near and the time is right
For dancing in the streets
All over the world

CHORUS
All we need is music, sweet music
There'll be music everywhere
Swinging, swaying, records playing
Dancing in the streets

It doesn't matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
Come on, every guy, grab a girl
Everywhere, around the world
Dancing, dancing in the streets, yeah

This is an invitation, across the nation
A chance for the folks to meet
Laughing, singing, records swinging
Dancing in the streets
They're doing it in Chicago
Down in New Orleans
Don't forget New York City

CHORUS
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
Dancing, dancing in the streets

This is an invitation, across the nation
A chance for the folks to meet
Summer's near and the time is right
For dancing in the streets

It doesn't matter what you wear
As long as you are there
Come on, every guy, grab a girl
Everywhere, around the world

Dancing in the streets
Philadelphia, Pa.
Baltimore in DC
Don't forget New York City
All over the world
Dancing in the streets
