"Dancing In The Streets" as written by Ivy Jo Hunter, Marvin P Gaye and William Stevenson....
callin' 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
in new york city, dancing in the street

all we need is music, sweet music (sweet music)
there'll be music everywhere (everywhere)
there'll be swinging, swaying and records playing
and dancing 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
everywhere around the world
there'll be dancing
they're dancing in the street

this is an invitation across the nation
a chance for folks to meet
there'll be laughing and singing and music swinging
dancing in the streets

philadelphia, pa (dancing in the street)
baltimore and dc now (dancing in the street)
yeah don't forget the motor city (dancing in the street)

all we need is music, sweet music (sweet music)
there'll be music everywhere (everywhere)
there'll be swinging, swaying and records playing
and dancing in the street

oh, 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
there'll be dancing (dancing in the street)
they're dancing in the streets (dancing in the street)

ooh
dancing in the street
ooh
dancing in the street

all we need is music, sweet music (sweet music)
there'll be music everywhere (everywhere)
there'll be swinging, swaying and records playing
and dancing in the street

oh, 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
there'll be dancing (dancing in the street)
they're dancing in the streets (dancing in the street)

we're down in la everyday, we're dancing in the street
let's form a big strong line, get in time
we're dancing in the street
across the ocean blue, me and you
we're dancing in the street
