Dancing, dancing, dancing in the streets
Dancing, dancing, dancing in the streets

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

They're dancing in Chicago
Down in New Orleans
New York City

All we need is music, sweet music
There'll be music everywhere
There'll be laughing and singing, music swinging 
And 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, dancing in the streets
Dancing, dancing, dancing in the streets

This is an invitation, across the nation 
The chance for folks to meet
There'll be swinging and swaying, music playing 
Dancing in the streets

Philadelphia, PA
Baltimore and D.C. now
Can't forget that Motor City

All we need is music, sweet music
There'll be music everywhere
There'll be laughing and singing, music swinging 
And dancing in the streets

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, dancing in the streets
Dancing, dancing, dancing in the streets
Dancing, dancing, dancing in the streets
Dancing, dancing, dancing in the streets

Dancing, dancing, dancing in the streets
Dancing, dancing, dancing in the streets
Dancing, dancing, dancing in the streets
Dancing, dancing, dancing in the streets
Dancing, dancing, dancing in the streets
Dancing, dancing, dancing in the streets
Dancing, dancing, dancing in the streets
