Comin' 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
Down in Dayton, Ohio (dancin' in the street)
Down in New Orleans (dancin' in the street)
In New York City (dancin' in the street)

All we need is music, sweet music
There'll be music everywhere
There'll be swingin', swayin', and records playin'
Dancin' in the street
   It doesn't matter what you wear
Just as long as you are there
So come on, every guy, grab a girl
B7                                  E
Everywhere around the world they're dancin'
They're dancin' in the street (dancin' in the street)

Verse 2:
This is an invitation across the nation
A chance for folks to meet
There'll be laughin', singin', and music swingin'
Dancin' in the street
Philadelphia, PA (dancin' in the street)
In Washington DC now (dancin' in the street)
Can't forget the Motor City (dancin' in the street)


They've got it in L.A., every day
They're dancin' in the street (dancin' in the street)
Across the Big Straw Line, dancin' in time
They're dancin' in the street (dancin' in the street)
Across the ocean blue, me and you
We're dancin' in the street (dancin' in the street)
...and fade

sadly, part of the tab is wrong: the first line of the chorus chords are not F#m to Bmi to F#m, it is G# Major to C# minor to F# Major to B

also, jeez, the lyrics are whack...
Dayton Ohio? 'They're dancing in Chicago'...
not Washington DC, it is 'Baltimore and DC, now'
Across the Big Straw Line? WTF? the line is "Let's form a big strong line, get in time, ..."
Okay, I feel better now...

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. The chords simply are not right. Can't rate highly with wrong chords. I'm speaking particularly about the F#m and Bm section that seems to be incorrect.

I want to post or [tab]
