Original Lyrics

Simon:
Hey Alvin, let's do "Leader of the Pack."

Alvin:
No way, that's a girl's song.

Theodore:
So, you've never heard of The Chipettes?

Simon:
Hahahaha

Alvin:
You guys aren't going to get me to put that wig on.

Simon & Theodore:
You can be the leader!

Alvin:
Hit it boys!

Theodore:
Is she really going out with him?

Simon:
Well, there she is, let's ask her

Theodore:
Betty, is that Alvin's ring you're wearing?

Alvin:
Uhm-hmm

Theodore:
Gee, it must be great riding with him

Simon:
Is he picking you up after school today?

Alvin:
Uh-uh

Simon & Theodore:
By the way, where'd you meet him?

Alvin:
I met him at the candy store
He turned around and smiled at me
You get the picture?

Simon & Theodore:
Yes, we see

Alvin:
That's when I fell for

Simon & Theodore:
The leader of the pack

Alvin:
My folks were always putting him down

Simon & Theodore:
Down, down

Alvin:
They said he came from the wrong side of town

Simon & Theodore:
What you mean when you say that he came from the wrong side of town? (oh)

Alvin:
They told me he was bad (oh), but I knew he was sad (oh)
That's why I fell for

Simon & Theodore:
The leader of the pack

Alvin:
I had to tell my Alvin we're through

Simon & Theodore:
What you mean when you say that you better go find somebody new? (oh)

Alvin:
He stood there and asked me why (oh), all I could do was cry (oh)
I'm sorry, I hurt you

Simon & Theodore:
The leader of the pack

Alvin:
He sort of smiled as he kissed me goodbye
The tears were beginning to show
As he drove away on that rainy night
I begged him to go slow
If he heard, I'll never know

Look out! Look out! Look out! Look out!

I felt so helpless, what could I do?
Remembering all the things we'd been through
In school they all stop and stare
I can't hide my tears, but I don't care
I'll never forget him

Simon & Theodore:
The leader of the pack

Alvin (Simon & Theodore):
Oooooo

The leader of the pack and now he's gone (gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone)
The leader of the pack and now he's gone (gone)
The leader of the pack and now he's gone (gone, gone, gone, gone, gone, gone)
The leader of the pack and now he's gone (gone)
