Van Halen – Dancing In The Street lyrics
(Words by William Stevenson, Ivy Jo Hunter & Marvin Gaye)

Woo!
Ah, yeah!

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 (They'll be dancin')
Down in New Orleans (Dancin' in the streets)
Up in New York City (Dancing in the streets)

All we need is music (Sweet sweet)
Sweet music (sweet sweet music)
There'll be music everywhere (sweet music everywhere)

(Ooh-oo-ooh) There'll be swingin', swayin', records playin'
Dancin' in the street

(Ah) Oh, it doesn't matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
So come on (Ah) every guy, grab a girl, everywhere, 'round the world
There'll be dancin', dancin' in the street

(Ooh-oo-ooh) It's just an invitation, 'cross the nation
A chance for the folks to meet
There'll be laughin', singin', music swingin'
Dancin' in the street

Philadelphia, pa (Dancin' in the street)
Baltimore, in D. C. Now (Dancin' in the streets)
Can't forget the Motor City (Dancin' in the streets)

All we need is music (Sweet sweet)
Sweet music (sweet sweet music)
There'll be music everywhere (sweet music everywhere)

(Oooh-oo-ooh) There'll be swingin', swayin', records playin'
Dancin' in the street, oh!
(Ah) Doesn't matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
Come on, (Ah) every guy, grab your girl, everywhere, 'round the world

Wow!
Hey hey hey!
Ow yeah, ow!

(Guitar Solo)

Dancin', they're dancin' in the street
(Dancin' in the streets)
Way down in L. A. Everyday
(Dancin' in the streets)
Dancin' in the street
(Dancin' in the streets)
San Francisco way (Ooh-ooh-ooh)
(Dancin' in the streets)
They do it everyday now
(Dancin' in the streets)
Across the ocean blue,)Ooh-ooh-ooh) me an' you
(Dancin' in the streets)
Dancin' in the street
(Dancin' in the streets)
