The Chipmunks-Scotland Comin' Thru the Rye

"Comin' Thru' the Rye" is a song originally written by Robert Burns, edited by Ross Bagdasarian, Sr., that is covered by The Chipmunks in The Alvin Show episode Bentley Van Rolls. The song is also included in the album Around the World with The Chipmunks.


And so chipmunks, in addition to the many other things I have mentioned,
Scotland is famous for their beautiful highlands and their great poets.

How come that man is wearing a dress?

I told you Alvin, that’s not a dress. They’re kilts.
Now let’s sing this wonderful song by Robert Burns.

How come the man wearing the dress is squeezing an octopus?

That is not an octopus, is a bagpipe.
Now let’s sing with dignity!

The Chipmunks:
If a body meet a body
Comin’ thru the rye
If a body meet a body
Made our body high

Everybody has somebody
May I say have I?
All the girls they smile at me
When comin’ thru the rye

Hey mister piper, can I play your octopus please?

Sure laddie.

Simon, you play the drum,
And Theodore, get on the saxophone.

You’re playing in the wrong key Alvin.
Simon, will you stop rock-and-rolling that drum?
It's disgraceful.
Theodore, please put that saxophone down.
You just can’t ruin a great song like that boys!
Fellas will you come back here with those instruments!
Alvin! Will you bring that octopus back!

Bring back my pipe back here!
