歌詞方面

填詞作曲由Marvin Gaye,William “Mickey” Stevenson及Ivy Jo Hunter聯手打造

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 street

They’re dancing in Chicago (dancing in the street)
Down in New Orleans (dancing in the street)
In New York City (dancing in the street)
All we need is music, sweet music
There’ll be music everywhere

There’ll be swingin’ and swayin’ and records playing
Dancing in the street

Oh it doesn’t matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
So come on ev’ry guy grab a girl
Everywhere around the world

There’ll be dancing (dancing in the street)
They’re dancing in the street
Dancing in the street

It’s just an invitation across the nation
A chance for folks to meet
There’ll be laughing, singing and music swinging
Dancing in the street

Philadelphia, PA (dancing in the street)
Baltimore and D.C. now (dancing in the street)
Can’t forget the Motor City (dancing in the street)

All we need is music, sweet music
There’ll be music everywhere
There’ll be swingin’, swayin’ 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

They’re dancing
They’re dancing in the street (dancing in the street)
Way down in L.A., every day, they’re dancing in the street
Let’s get our big strong long, get on time (they’re dancing in the street)
Across the ocean blue, me and you (we’re dancing in the street)
