  • Song Lyrics:
    (All right you Chipmunks! Ready to sing your song?
    -I'll say we are!
    -Let's sing it now!
    Okay, Simon?
    Okay, Theodore?
    Okay, Alvin? Alvin? ALVIN!

    Christmas, Christmas time is near
    Time for toys and time for cheer
    We've been good, but we can't last
    Hurry Christmas, hurry fast
    Want a plane that loops the loop
    Me, I want a hula hoop
    We can hardly stand the wait
    Please Christmas, don't be late.

    (Okay fellas get ready.
    That was very good, Simon.
    Very good Theodore.
    Ah, Alvin, you were a little flat, watch it.
    Ah, Alvin. Alvin. ALVIN!

    Want a plane that loops the loop
    I still want a hula hoop
    We can hardly stand the wait
    Please Christmas, don't be late.
    We can hardly stand the wait
    Please Christmas, don't be late.

    (Very good, boys
    -Lets sing it again! Yeah, lets sing it again!
    No, That's enough, lets not overdo it
    -What do you mean overdo it?
    -We want to sing it again!
    Now wait a minute, boys
    -Why can't we sing it again?
    -[chipmunk chatter]
    Alvin, cut that out..Theodore, just a minute.
    Simon will you cut that out? Boys...)

    This is not just sped up voice, it is sped up voices. Each character does have a separate voice and within the first 30 seconds of the song you recognize them as unique (with one unique troublemaker/rebel). This attention on the original is why imitators that just don't get it. You have not been heard from some imitators (like say, The Spice Mice).
