Alvin and the Chipmunks - If You Wanna Have Friends

"If You Wanna Have Friends" is an original song performed by The Chipmunks in the direct-to-video film Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet Frankenstein when trying to teach Frankenstein's monster how to interact with others.

Lyrics

The Chipmunks:
If you wanna have friends
Don't go steppin' on their toes
Don't tie 'em to a tree
Kick 'em in the knee
Or sock 'em in the nose
If you wanna have friends

If you wanna have friends (if you wanna have friends)
There's some things you've gotta learn
Like how to keep your cool
Don't go actin' like a fool
Learn to take your turn
You've gotta learn to take your turn

And if things don't always go your way
Don't be a punk, man
Get with the program
The thing about buds that you need to know is true
It's two parts them and one part you

If you wanna be, then you've gotta be
If you wanna be, then you've gotta be

It's simple to be friends
If you wanna be
It's an easy thing to do
Then you've gotta be
When you're walking down the street
Treat everyone you meet
The way they ought to treat you

People come and people go
But friends can last for years
Now we've got each other, brother
We're the Four Chipmunksketeers!

If you wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna be
Then you've gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta, gotta be
It's delightful having friends
It's the righteous way to be
Just take a look around
At all the friends you've found
Like him, and him, and me!

And when the party's over
And the daytime ends
We're still gonna be
'Cause we wanna be
You know we're gonna be
'Cause we wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna, wanna be friends

If you wanna be, then you've gotta be
If you wanna be, then you've gotta be
Friends!
