"Dancin in the Street" as written by and Marvin P/hunter Gaye....
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
There'll be music everywhere
There'll be swingin', swayin' and records playin'
They're 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
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., Baltimore and DC now
Don't forget the Motor City

All we need is music, sweet music
There'll be music everywhere
There'll be swingin', swayin' and records playin'
They're dancin' 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
They're dancin', they're dancin' in the streets

Way down in L.A.
Everyday they're dancin' in the street
Let's form a pitch torn line, yeah
Every time we're dancin' in the street
Across the ocean blue, me and you
Dancin' in the streets
