Lyrics

Alvin:
Look at those guys dance!

Theodore:
Yeah!

Dave:
Well, I used to be quite a dancer myself.

The Chipmunks:
That was a long time ago Dave.

Dave:
Not so long ago. I'm probably in better shape today than I was twenty years ago.

The Chipmunks:
Ha ha ha ha!

Alvin:
Yeah right! Bet you can't stay out there 'til the song's over.

Dave:
You're on!

The Chipmunks:
Saturday night and the moon is out
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout
Find a two-step partner and a Cajun beat
When it lifts me up I'm gonna find my feet

Out in the middle of a big dance floor
When I hear that fiddle wanna beg for more
Gonna dance to a band from a-Lou'sian' tonight

Alvin:
Well I never have wandered down to New Orleans
Never have drifted down a bayou stream
But I heard that music on the radio
And I swore some day I was gonna go

The Chipmunks:
Down Highway 10 past Lafayette

Alvin:
To Baton Rouge and I won't forget
To send you a card with my regrets

The Chipmunks:
'Cause I'm never gonna come back home

It's Saturday night and the moon is out
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout
Find a two-step partner and a Cajun beat
When it lifts me up I'm gonna find my feet

Out in the middle of a big dance floor
When I hear that fiddle wanna beg for more
Gonna dance to a band from a-Lou'sian' tonight

Dave:
(gasping for air)

The Chipmunks:
Get up Dave, get up!

Dave:
How much longer?

Theodore:
We're almost half done.

Alvin:
They got a alligator stew and a crayfish pie
A Gulf storm blowin' into town tonight
Livin' on the delta, it's quite a show
They got hurricane parties every time it blows

But here up north it's a cold, cold rain
And there ain't no cure for my blues today
Except when the paper says, "Beausoleil is coming into town"
Baby let's go down

The Chipmunks:
It's Saturday night and the moon is out
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout
Find a two-step partner and a Cajun beat
When it lifts me up I'm gonna find my feet

Out in the middle of a big dance floor
When I hear that fiddle wanna beg for more
Gonna dance to a band from a-Lou'sian' tonight

Theodore:
Why is that lady holding Dave by the arm?

Simon:
To keep him from smashing his face on the dance floor.

Theodore:
He doesn't look too good.

Dave:
Oh!

Alvin:
Bring your mama, bring your papa, bring your sister too
They got lots of music and lots of room
When they play you a waltz from 1910
You gonna feel a little bit young again

The Chipmunks:
Well you learned to dance with your rock and roll
You learned to swing with a do-si-do
But you learn to love at the fais-so-do
When you hear a little Jolie Blon

Saturday night and the moon is out
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout
Find a two-step partner and a Cajun beat
When it lifts me up I'm gonna find my feet

Out in the middle of a big dance floor
When I hear that fiddle wanna beg for more
Gonna dance to a band from a-Lou'sian' tonight

Dave:
(gasping for air)

Simon:
I can't believe it; he's gonna make it!

Dave:
Yes!

Alvin:
One more time!

Dave:
Nooo!

The Chipmunks:
Saturday night and the moon is out
I wanna head on over to the Twist and Shout
Find a two-step partner and a Cajun beat
When it lifts me up
