Lyrics

The Chipmunks:
Up 'round the ashes, up 'round the ashes
Grow the roses of success

Dave:
Every bursted bubble has a glory
Each abysmal failure makes a point
Every glowing path that goes a-stray
Shows you how to find a better way

So everytime you stumble, never grumble
Next time you'll bumble even less

The Chipmunks:
For up 'round the ashes, up 'round the ashes
Grow the roses of success

Grow the roses, grow the roses
Grow the roses of success
Grow the roses, those rosy, roses

From the ashes of disaster grow the roses of success

Alvin:
For every big mistake you make, be greatfull
That mistake you'll never mistake again
Every shiny dream that fades and dies
Generates the steam for two more tries

Dave:
There's magic in the wake of a fiasco
It gives you that chance to second guess

The Chipmunks:
Then up 'round the ashes, up 'round the ashes
Grow the roses of success

Grow the roses, grow the roses
Grow the roses of success
Grow the roses, those rosy, roses

From the ashes of disaster grow the roses of success

Alvin:
Disaster didn't stymie Louie Pasteur
Edison took years to see the light
Alexander Graham knew failure well
He took a lot of knocks to ring the bell

Dave:
So when it gets disstressing, it's a blessing
Onward and upward, you must press!

The Chipmunks:
'Til up from the ashes, up from the ashes
Grow the roses of success

Alvin:
Grow the ro-

Theodore:
Grow the ro-

The Chipmunks:
Grow the roses

Alvin:
Grow the ro-

Theodore:
Grow the ro-

The Chipmunks:
Grow the roses

Grow the roses, those rosy, roses
From the ashes of disaster grow the roses of success
