Lyrics

Simon:
The only two things in life that make it worth livin'
Is guitars that tune-

Alvin:
And food, and Santa Claus

Theodore:
And birthday parties!

Simon:
And roller skates!

Theodore:
And movies!

Alvin:
And popcorn!

Dave:
Hold it!

The Chipmunks:
We don't need our names in the marquee lights
We got our song and we got you with us tonight
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love

Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas
With Waylon and Willie and the boys
This successful life we're livin' got us feuding like the Hatfields and McCoys
Between Hank Williams' pain songs
And Newbury's train songs
And "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain"
Out in Luckenbach, Texas ain't nobody feelin' no pain

So baby let's sell your diamond ring
Buy some boots and faded jeans and go away
This coat and tie is choking me
In your high society you cry all day
We've been so busy keepin' up with the Jones
Four car garage and we're still building on
Maybe it's time we got back to the basics of love

Between Hank Williams' pain songs
And Newbury's train songs
And "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain"
Out in Luckenbach, Texas ain't nobody feelin' no pain
Out in Luckenbach, Texas ain't nobody feelin' no pain
