Dancing In The Street

(Words by William Stevenson, Ivy Jo Hunter & Marvin Gaye)

Woo!

Ah, yeah!

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 street

They're dancin' in Chicago (They'll be dancin')

Down in New Orleans (Dancin' in the streets)

Up in New York City (Dancing in the streets)

All we need is music (Sweet sweet)

Sweet music (sweet sweet music)

There'll be music everywhere (sweet music everywhere)

(Ooh-oo-ooh) There'll be swingin', swayin', records playin'

Dancin' in the street

(Ah) Oh, it doesn't matter what you wear

Just as long as you are there

So come on (Ah) every guy, grab a girl, everywhere, 'round the world

There'll be dancin', dancin' in the street

(Ooh-oo-ooh) It's just an invitation, 'cross the nation

A chance for the folks to meet

There'll be laughin', singin', music swingin'

Dancin' in the street

Philadelphia, PA (Dancin' in the street)

Baltimore, in D.C. now (Dancin' in the streets)

Can't forget the Motor City (Dancin' in the streets)

All we need is music (Sweet sweet)

Sweet music (sweet sweet music)

There'll be music everywhere (sweet music everywhere)

(Oooh-oo-ooh) There'll be swingin', swayin', records playin'

Dancin' in the street, oh!

(Ah) Doesn't matter what you wear

Just as long as you are there

Come on, (Ah) every guy, grab your girl, everywhere, 'round the world

Wow!

Hey hey hey!

Ow yeah, ow!
