Dancing in the Street Lyrics

by The Mamas & The Papas

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 streets
They're dancin' in Chicago
Down in New Orleans, up in New York City

All we need is music
(Sweet music)
Sweet music
(Sweet music)
There'll be music everywhere
(Everywhere)
There'll be swingin' and swayin' and records playin'
And dancin' in the streets

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

This is an invitation
Across the nation
A chance for the folks to meet
There'll be laughin', singin', and music swingin'
And dancin' in the streets

Philadelphia, P.A.
(Philadelphia, P.A.)
Baltimore and DC now
(Baltimore and DC now)
Yeah, don't forget the Motor City
(Can't forget the Motor City)

All we need is music
(Sweet music)
Sweet music
(Sweet music)
There'll be music everywhere
(Everywhere)
There'll be swingin' and swayin' and records playin'
And dancin' in the street, yeah

Oh, it doesn't matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
So come on, every guy grasp a girl
(Come on, come on)
Everywhere around the world

There'll be damm fun
Be dancin' in the streets
Philadelphia, P.A.
(Philadelphia, P.A.)
Baltimore and DC now
(Baltimore and DC now)
Can't forget that Motor City
(Can't forget the Motor City)
Way down in L.A., California
(Way down in L.A., California)
