Lyrics

Alvin:
Isn't that Jerry Reed?

Theodore:
Yep.

Alvin:
Oh Jerry! Guess who just wrote your next hit song?

Jerry:
My next hit song? Ah.
Was it Willy?

Alvin:
No.

Jerry:
Wasn't Willy. Ah.
Was it Walin?

Alvin:
Nope.

Jerry:
Wasn't Walin.
Oh hoho, it was me wasn't it?!

Alvin:
Nope.

Jerry
Oh, wasn't me. Then um, let's see.
Alvin, I'll tell ya I've run out of guesses.

Alvin:
I wrote it!
All by myself.

Jerry:
Alvin I didn't know you wrote country music songs.

Alvin:
There's nothing to it Jerry!

Jerry:
Well alright! Count the thing open and let's hit it!

Alvin:
Let's hit it boys!

Jerry:
I went out to work this morning
She was sleeping when I left her
I took the lunch she packed the night before
No one could have made me think
By noon I would be crying
As I kissed her cheek and softly closed the door

Alvin:
More feeling Jerry!

Jerry:
Oh okay.

And when they rang the lunch bell
And the boys all sat around talking
Well we were swapping jokes and trading candy bars for milk

Candy bars for milk?

Alvin:
That's right Jerry, milk.

Jerry:
Right there inside my lunchbox, ah
Right next to my.. er, sandwich
There was a note that said she found somebody else

The Chipmunks:
He's got a lunchbox
Full of broken hearts
A Thermos full of tears
One more bite of sorrow
On a tin can full for fears

Lunchbox full of broken hearts
A meal fit for a king
And if he can swallow this one
He can swallow anything

Alvin:
Take it Jerry!

Jerry:
I've got a lunchbox

The Chipmunks:
Lunchbox

Jerry:
Full of broken hearts

The Chipmunks:
Broken hearts

Jerry:
It's a meal fit for a king (ahh)
And if I can swallow this one
I can swallow anything

Alvin listen, come here.
Ah, Alvin listen to me.
You know this is a, this song is too good for me.
Say, you know I'm not really that great a singer.
But I know this dude,
He's a movie star,
Do you know Burt Willis?

Alvin:
You know were Burt lives?

Jerry:
Do I know where he lives?
I'll tell you what I'd do, I'll take you down there.
He lives down there in Jupiter Falls.
And he raises these horses.
