Calling out around the world,
Summer's here and the time is right
They're dancing in Chicago,
In New York City.
All we need is music, sweet music.
There'll be swinging and swaying and records playing,
Oh, it doesn't matter what you wear,
So come on, every guy, grab a girl.
They'll be dancing.

A chance for folks to meet.
Dancing in the street.
Baltimore and D.C. now.

There'll be music everywhere.
Dancing in the street.
Just as long as you are there.
Everywhere around the world
They're dancing in the street.
Way down in L.A. ev'ry day,
(Dancing in the street.)
We're dancing in the street.
Across the ocean blue, me and you,
