Lyrics

Dave:
Well, hi, Simon

Simon:
Hi

Dave:
Theodore

Theodore:
Hi

Dave:
Alvin, I see you got here early
And you're rehearsing the band
That's very good

You know I would...
What's that great big expensive orchestra waiting for over there?
Oh, boy, I'm sure glad they don't belong to...
Alvin, Alvin, say something, Alvin!

Alvin:
Everybody ready Violins, saxophones, trumpets?

Dave:
You mean you hired all those musicians?

Alvin:
You bet, I did

Dave:
You know how much a fifty piece orchestra costs?

Alvin:
Ready, boys?

Dave:
Wait a minute, you don't need a fifty piece orchestra to play for three chipmunks.

The Chipmunks:
Oh, how we love to go for a ride
And see the country far and wide
Look at the snow and the frost

Dave:
Will you wait?

The Chipmunks:
We roll the windows up and down
And toot the horn in every town

Alvin:
Who cares what the orchestra costs?

Dave:
I'll tell you who

The Chipmunks:
We're happy while we're rolling along
We're singing every goofy song
Boy, what a joy, what fun

Children waving you a big hello

Alvin:
Why, you've got friends
You didn't even know

The Chipmunks:
How we love to go for a ride
And see the country far and wide
It's great when you're on the go

Alvin:
Let's go!

Dave:
Alvin, put that baton down and listen to me
You just cannot go around...
Listen, fifty musicians costs over, let me see, two thousand times fifty...
Do you realize? Alvin, stop leading that expensive orchestra and come over here

The Chipmunks:
Children waving you a big hello

Alvin:
And he's still worrying about the dough

The Chipmunks:
How we love to go for a ride
And see the country far and wide
It's great when you're on the go

Dave:
Alvin, will you cut it out?
What do you think we're gonna pay this orchestra with, chestnuts?
Now listen...

Alvin:
Slow down, buddy
I absolutely cannot understand
A single word you're saying

Dave:
You can't understand a word I'm saying!
You can't understand a word I'm saying!
Simon, Theodore, will you cut out that
La, la, la and listen to me?
Orchestra, will you please go home?

Alvin, stop leading that orchestra!
Alvin, Alvin!
