Dancing in the Street

Dancing in the Street

Written by William Stevenson, Marvin Gaye and Ivy Jo Hunter
Performed by Martha and the Vandellas (1964)

Calling 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
Up in New York City

All we need is music, sweet music
There'll be music everywhere.
There'll be swinging, swaying, records playing, dancing in the streets,
It doesn’t matter what hat you wear, just as long as you are there,
So come on
Grab a guy, grab a girl, everywhere around the world.

There'll be dancing, dancing in the streets.
Its just an invitation,across the nation, a chance for folks to meet.
There'll be laughing and singing, music swinging, dancing in the streets
All we need is music, sweet music
There'll be music everywhere.
There'll be swinging, swaying, records playing, dancing in the streets,
It doesn’t matter what hat you wear, just as long as you are there,
So come on
Grab a guy, grab a girl, everywhere around the world.

Dancing, dancing in the streets,
Way down in LA, everyday, dancing in the streets
San Francisco way, they do it everyday now,
Dancing in the streets
