"Alvin's Orchestra" as written by and Bagdasarian....
Well, hi, Simon
(Hi)
Theodore
(Hi)
Alvin, I see you got here early
And you're rehearsing the band
That's very good

You know I would
What's that great big expensive
Orchestra waiting for over there?
Oh, boy, I'm sure glad they don't belong to
Alvin, Alvin, say something, Alvin
(Everybody ready Violins, saxophones, trumpets)

You mean you hired all those musicians
(You bet, I did)
You know how much a
Fifty piece orchestra costs
(Ready, boys)
Wait a minute, you don't need
A fifty piece orchestra to play for three chipmunks

Oh, how we love to go for a ride
And see the country far and wide
Look at the snow and the frost
Will you wait?

We roll the windows up and down
And toot the horn in every town
Who cares what the orchestra costs
I'll tell you who

We're happy while we're rolling along
We're singing every goofy song
Boy, what a joy, what fun

Children waving you a big hello
Why, you've got friends
You didn't even know

How we love to go for a ride
And see the country far and wide
It's great when you're on the go
Let's go

Alvin, put that baton down and listen to me
You just cannot go around
Listen, fifty musicians costs over
Let me see, two thousand times fifty
Do you realize? Alvin, stop leading that expensive
Orchestra and come over here

Children waving you a big hello
And he's still worrying about the dough

How we love to go for a ride
And see the country far and wide
It's great when you're on the go

Alvin, will you cut it out?
What do you think we're
Gonna pay this orchestra with chestnuts?
Now listen to

Slow down, buddy
I absolutely cannot understand
A single word you're saying

You can't understand a word I'm saying
You can't understand a word I'm saying
Simon, Theodore, will you cut out that
Wha', wha', wha' and listen to me
Orchestra, will you please go home?

Alvin, stop leading that orchestra
Alvin, Alvin
