Dancing in the Street Lyrics

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', 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 (come on) grab a girl
Everywhere around the world
There'll be dancing
They're dancing 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', 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 (come on, come on) grasp a girl
Everywhere around the world

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

Not to mention Halifax, Nova Scotia (not to mention, indeed)
Or Long Barn, they do that Riverdale, cream you know (yes, I know)
Manchester (and, oh, Amherst, Amherst)
Alexandria (Virginia, Virginia)
Falls Church (where's that?)
Oh, Boyle Heights (Boyle Heights, never heard of it)
