  • Song Lyrics:
    Note: David Seville is D, Alvin is A, Simon is S, Theodore is T,
    and the Chipmunks are C

    D:Alvin, put that harmonica down.
    D:Because we're gonna sing, that's why.
    A:Not again!
    D:Never mind. Now look fellas, this is a pretty song so let's try not
    to goof it up. Are you ready, Simon?
    S:Sure, let's go.
    D:All set, Theodore?
    T:Hot dog, you bet!
    D:Are you ready, Alvin? Ready, Alvin? ALVIN!!
    A:Aw, nuts!
    C:We sure like girls; all kind of girls
    From Annie to Veronica
    We like them small or fat or tall
    A:I wanna play my harmonica!
    D:Now cut that out.
    C:And everyone to get a kiss
    We take them fruit or popcorn
    Because they always fall in love
    A:When I play my harmonicorn (sic)!


    D:Will you put that thing down and sing?
    C:We sure like girls; all kind of girls
    From Annie to Veronica
    We like them small or fat or tall
    A:I'm gonna play my harmonica!!
    D:All right, Alvin. Make a fool of yourself. Play the harmonica.

    (After a few bars of harmonica music, the Chipmunks suddenly
    burst out with "Cha-cha-cha!")

    D:Now wait a minute, you guys! Alvin, you're goofing it all up!
    This was a pretty song, it's not supposed to be a-
    C:Cha-cha-cha! (continue to "cha-cha-cha" while David Seville speaks)
    D:Now look what you did! You got them all cha-chaing and singing
    and wrecking the song! Theodore...Simon...orchestra will you cut that out?! Alvin put that harmonica down! Alvin! Alvin! (fades)

    Ele luvs theo is so right! In The Alvin Show Simon holds up fruit and Theodore holds up popcorn! I know "We take them fruit or popcorn" doesn't sound right, but that's what it is!!! PEOPLE GET IT RIGHT!
