Dancin' In The Streets


by Martha and the Vandellas (William Stevenson, Marvin Gaye & Ivy Hunter)
( A - - - /   //)

They'll be dancin', they're dancin' in the streets
They'll be dancin', they're dancin' in the streets

 V1:	Calling out around the world
Are you ready for a brand new beat?
Summer is here and the time is right
For dancin' in the street
They're dancin' in Chicago, down in New Orleans
Up in New York City

A - - - // (14x)

 C:	All we need is music, sweet music
There'll be music everywhere
There'll be laughing and singing, music swinging
And dancin' in the streets
It doesn't matter what you wear,
Just as long as you are there
Come on every guy, grab a girl
Everywhere around the world

D - - - /   / D7 - - - /   / A - - - /   /   /   /
C#m - - - /   / F#m - - - /   / B - - - /   / E - - - /   //
 
They'll be dancin', they're dancin' in the streets
They'll be dancin', they're dancin' in the streets

 V2:	This is an invitation across the nation
A chance for folks to meet
There'll be swinging and swaying, music playing
And dancin' in the streets
Philadelphia PA, Baltimore and DC now
Can't forget that motor city

 C:	All they need is music, sweet music
There'll be music everywhere
There'll be laughing and singing, music swinging
And dancin' in the streets
It doesn't matter what you wear,
Just as long as you are there
Come on every guy, grab a girl
Everywhere around the world

They'll be dancin', they're dancin' in the streets
They'll be dancin', they're dancin' in the streets
