Dave:
How about "My Wild Irish Rose?"

Alvin:
Are you Irish?

Dave:
Well, not exactly.

Alvin:
One moment, please (The Chipmunks' whispering)
My brothers and I have decided to sing for you, anyway.

Dave:
Fine, tell your brothers I appreciate it very much.

Alvin:
Perfectly alright!

The Chipmunks:
My wild Irish rose, the sweetest flower that grows (ooh)
You may search everywhere but none can compare (ooh)
With my wild Irish rose

Alvin:
Are you sure you're not Irish?

Dave:
Yes, quite sure.

The Chipmunks:
My wild Irish rose, the dearest flower that grows (ooh)
Someday for my sake, she may let me take (ooh)
The bloom from my wild Irish rose

Alvin:
How can you enjoy this song if you're not Irish?

Dave:
Do I have to be Irish to enjoy the song?

Alvin:
It certainly helps.

The Chipmunks:
My wild Irish rose, the sweetest flower that grows (ooh)
I love her, I do, that girl from Peru (ooh)
She's my wild Irish rose

Alvin:
You certainly look Irish.

Dave:
Well, I'm not Irish.

The Chipmunks:
My wild Irish rose, the dearest flower that grows (ooh)
Someday for my sake, she may bake a cake

Alvin:
Are you sure you're not Irish?

Dave:
Okay, alright, I'm Irish.

Alvin:
Funny, you don't look Irish.

The Chipmunks:
My Perudian, wild Irish Rose
