Dancing In the Street

Calling out around the world, are you ready for a brand new beat
Summer's here and time is right for dancing in the street
They're dancing in Chicago, down in New Orleans, down in New York City

All we need is music, sweet music, there'll be music everywhere
There'll be swinging and swaying and records playing
And dancing in the street

Whoa, 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'll be dancing
They're dancin' in the street (Dancing in the street)

This is an invitation across the nation, a chance for folks to meet
There'll be swinging and swaying and records playing
Dancing in the street
Philadelphia, P.A., Baltimore and D.C. (sic: across to Washington D.C)
Can't forget the Motor City
All we need is music, sweet music, there'll be music everywhere
There'll be swinging and swaying and records playing
Dancing in the street

Oooh!
