Lyrics

Dave:
It's that time of year again.

The Chipmunks:
It's that time of year again

Dave:
Christmas time is here again.

The Chipmunks:
Christmas time is here again

Dave:
Presents and stockings appear by the score.

The Chipmunks:
Presents and stockings appear by the score

Dave:
Carolers at the door.

Alvin:
I sure hope Dave's got more!

Dave:
Alvin.
Cookies, nuts and candy cane.

The Chipmunks:
Cookies, nuts and candy cane

Dave:
Candles in the window pane.

The Chipmunks:
Candles in the window pane

Dave:
Remembering each reindeer's name.

Alvin:
Lots more presents with my name!

Dave:
And feeling the joy inside!

The Chipmunks:
And feeling the joy inside

Dave:
That's the spirit of Christmas.

The Chipmunks:
That's the spirit of Christmas

Dave:
Let it live in your heart.

The Chipmunks:
Let it live in your heart

Dave:
That's much better, Alvin, now keep it up.
Or you won't get any presents in your stocking.

Alvin:
No presents?!

Dave:
If we could only find a way.

The Chipmunks:
If we could only find a way

Dave:
To make it Christmas everyday.

The Chipmunks:
To make it Christmas everyday

Dave:
Keep the spirit strong and true.

The Chipmunks:
Keep the spirit strong and true

Dave:
And all of the love.

The Chipmunks:
And all of the love

Dave:
This season's made of.

The Chipmunks:
This season's made of

Dave:
Will last us the whole year through.

The Chipmunks:
Will last us the whole year through

Alvin:
Oh, Dave, I sang all the right words!

Santa Claus:
Just then, the phone rang.

Theodore:
And you'll never guess who was on the phone!

Santa Claus:
Carnegie Hall?

Simon:
Yep, and they wanted Alvin to play a harmonica solo on Christmas Eve!

Santa Claus:
But he couldn't, because he'd already given his harmonica to Tommy.

Alvin:
But Dave didn't know that.

Santa Claus:
And Alvin had to figure out a way to make enough money to buy a new, echo harmonica.
Uhh, Alvin, why didn't you just tell Dave that you had given your harmonica to Tommy?
And that you needed money to buy a new one for Carnegie Hall?

Alvin:
Because Dave gave me that harmonica when I was very little.
I was afraid he'd be mad at me.

Simon:
Well, the truth sure could have saved us a lot of trouble, Alvin!

Theodore:
Yeah, and remember, we had to put horns on all those dogs!

Santa Claus:
Oh-ho-ho-ho, what a sight!
Alvin dressed up as Santa Claus, with Simon and Theodore as his little elves, rounded up all the neighborhood dogs, tied to them to a homemade sleigh, and for one dollar, kids could have their pictures taken with Santa and his reindeer! How ingenious!
I got a real laugh out of that one, oh-ho-ho-ho-ho!

Alvin:
Well, Dave didn't think it was so funny!

Santa Claus:
Well, of course he didn't.
Dave thought Alvin had lost the spirit of Christmas.
Christmas was a time for giving and sharing, not making money.
Dave was very upset and sent the boys straight to bed!

Theodore:
Yeah, without dessert!

Simon:
As I recall, Theodore, you had some chocolate hidden under your bed!

Theodore:
But I wanted to save it!

Simon:
You could have fooled me, guess how many chocolate bars he ate that night, Santa?

Santa Claus:
Two?

Simon:
Not even close.

Theodore:
Be quiet, Simon.

Santa Claus:
Four?

Simon:
Keep going.

Santa Claus:
Theodore!

Theodore:
I couldn't help it!

Santa Claus:
Five?

Alvin:
Santa, the story?

Santa Claus:
Oh, yes, that's right. Where were we?

Alvin:
Dave said he was very dissappointed in me. I couldn't get to sleep.

Theodore:
So we sang him to sleep.
