All kinds of girls
From Annie to Veronica
We like 'em small or fat or tall

Alvin:

The Chipmunks:
And if we want to get a kiss
We take them fruit or popcorn
Because they always fall in love

Dave:
Ah, that's not right.

The Chipmunks:
Dave!

Dave:
Oh, hi fellas.

Theodore:
Is something wrong Dave?

Dave:
Ah, it's just this song I'm writing.
It's missing some instrument.

Alvin:
What about a harmonica?

Dave:
No one knows how to play one.

Alvin:
I do!

Dave:
Well, I don't know, but I guess we could give it a try.
Alvin, not yet.

Alvin:
Why?

Dave:
Because we're gonna sing, that's why.

The Chipmunks:
We sure like girls,
All kinds of girls,
From Annie to Veronica.
We like 'em small or fat or tall

Alvin:
I wanna play my harmonica!

Dave:
OK Alvin. Go ahead, play your harmonica.

Simon & Theodore:
Cha-Cha-Cha!
Cha-Cha-Cha!

Simon:
I don't know. It's still missing something.

Alvin:
Let's give it more of a 90s sound.

Dave:
90s?

Simon:
What about a synthesizer?

Dave:
A what?

Theodore:
Give it that techno-pop sound.

Dave:
Huh?

Alvin:
You know, rapping?

Dave:
But it's not Christmas.

Alvin:
No, no, no. Not like presents, like this.

Yo, we like girls

The Chipmunks:
Yeah we like girls
Every kinda of girl we know

Short ones, long ones
All the pretty blond ones
Watch out babe 'cause here we go

The girls like us because we rap
The only thing that they like more
Is when I play harmonica (yeah)
Alvin, Simon, Theodore

Dave:
Boys, stop that! Do you guys feel OK.
You definitely don't look right.

Alvin:
We don't look right? Look at those feet!
And, and that hair! You could use some mousse.

Dave:
That does it! I'm calling the doctor.
