The Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California. The band was known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, country, improvisational jazz, psychedelia, and space rock, and for live performances of long musical improvisation.

Hey, comin' out around the world be ready for a brand new beat
Oh, summer's here and the time is right, oh, for dancing in the street
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 music)
They'll be music everywhere (everywhere)

They'll be laughing, singing, music swinging and dancing in the street 
It doesn't matter what you wear just as long as you are there
So come on every guy and grab a girl everywhere around the world 
Dancing (dancing in the street) oh oh 

It's an invitation across the nation the chance for folks to meet
There'll be swinging, swaying, music playing and dancing in the street 
Philadelphia, PA now (dancing in the street)
Baltimore and D.C. (dancing in the street)
Can't forget them other cities (dancing in the street)
