Lyrics

The Chipmunks:
Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature's recipes
That brings the bare necessities of life

Alvin:
Wherever I wander, wherever I roam
I couldn't be fonder of my big home

The Chipmunks:
The bees are buzzin' in the tree
To make some honey just for me
When you look under the rocks and plants
And take a glance at the fancy ants
Then maybe try a few
The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!

Dave:
Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife

The Chipmunks:
I mean the bare necessities
That's why a bear can rest at ease
With just the bare necessities of life

Alvin:
When you pick a pawpaw
Or a prickly pear
And you prick a raw paw
Next time beware

The Chipmunks:
Don't pick the prickly pear by the paw
When you pick a pear
Try to use the claw

Dave:
But you don't need to use the claw
When you pick a pear of the big pawpaw
Have I given you a clue?

The Chipmunks:
The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!

Dave:
So just try to relax

Alvin:
Oh, yeah?

Dave:
In my backyard
If ya act like that bee acts
You're workin' too hard

The Chipmunks:
Don't spend your time just lookin' around
For somethin' you want that can't be found

Dave:
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin' about it
I'll tell ya something true

The Chipmunks:
The bare necessities of life
The bare necessities of life
The bare necessities of life
Will come to you!
