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
Up in New York city

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

It doesn't matter what you wear just as long as you are there
So come every guy, grab your girl
Everywhere around the world
There'll be dancing, dancing in the streets

It's just an invitation across the nation
A chance for folks to meet
There'll be laughing, singing, music swinging
Dancing in the streets

Philadelphia, PA
Baltimore, in D.C. now
Can't forget the Motor City

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

It doesn't matter what you wear just as long as you are there
So come every guy, grab your girl
Everywhere around the world
Dancin', they're dancin' in the street

Way down in L.A. everyday, dancin' in the street
San Francisco way, they do it everyday now
Across the ocean blue
