​Philadelphia, PA

This song is by Jan and Dean and appears on the album Surf City and Other Swingin' Cities (1963).

I can still hear the music playin'
Harold, Jess, Steven, Pat and Molaterry swayin'
And I still hear Dick Clark saying
"This portion of American Bandstand is brought to you by..."

I remember when they started the stroll
The Diamonds were the group atop the teenage poll
Danny and the Juniors singing:
Oh baby, Let's go to the Hop
Oh baby, Let's go to the Hop

I remember Philadelphia, Philadelphia, PA
All the kids on bandstand, across the USA

Come on Duane twang that thang
Come on Duane twang that thang

46th and Market Street that place ain't mean
Have'ta get there early gotta get a seat
To hear Chubby, Bob, Frank and babe singin' the beat
Let's twist again, like we did last summer, ya!
Bobby Darin's on his way to the scene singin'
"Oh, splish splash sure was clean!"
Remember Dick Clark saying: "Here's Don and Phil..."

Dreeeeeam, dream, dream, dreeeam
Dreeeeeeeeeammm

I remember Philadelphia, Philadelphia PA
All the kids on bandstand, across the USA
