Y.M.C.A. è l’acronimo di Young Men’s Christian Association, associazione di volontari per aiutare i bisognosi mediante l’indottrinamento alla fede in Cristo. La canzone fu pubblicata nel 1978 divenendo un successo di proporsioni epiche, mai minimamente scalfito nel corso degli anni.
Il testo dei Village People si rivolge a tutti i giovani uomini gay (quali erano quasi tutti i componenti del gruppo) che in essa avrebbero potuto trovare aiuto e conforto; è divenuto un vero e proprio classico da discoteca, ma viene utilizzato anche moltissimo come jingle o anche come intrattenimento durante le pause degli avvenimenti sportivi, nonchè un vero e proprio inno gay. La sua peculiare forma di ballo è conosciuta in tutto il mondo.

Young man, there's a place you can go.
I said, young man, when you're short on your dough.
You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time.

It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.

You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal
You can do whatever you feel ...

Young man, are you listening to me?
I said, young man, what do you want to be?
I said, young man, you can make real your dreams.
But you've got to know this one thing!

No man does it all by himself.
I said, young man, put your pride on the shelf,
And just go there, to the Y.M.C.A.
I'm sure they can help you today.

It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.

You can hang out with all the boys ...

It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.
It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.

You can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal,
You can do whatever you feel ...

Young man, I was once in your shoes.
I said, I was down and out with the blues.
I felt no man cared if I were alive.
I felt the whole world was so jive ...

That's when someone came up to me,
And said, young man, take a walk up the street.
It's a place there called the Y.M.C.A.
They can start you back on your way.

It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.
It's fun to stay at the Y-M-C-A.

They have everything that you need to enjoy,
You can hang out with all the boys ...
