Lyrics

Dave:
Boys, we've been invited to lead a community sing at the community hall!
Isn't that wonderful?

Alvin:
Fantastic, Glorious!
I'm floating with ecstasy!

Dave:
Very funny, but perhaps this'll interest you, Mister Alvin!
The event is going to be televised.

Alvin:
Oh, well, in that case!
I will lead the group!

Theodore:
No, Alvin! I want to lead!

Simon:
No, I believe, it's my turn!

Dave:
Incase you're interested, you boys will be in the background.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome! As we all know, the community that,
Sings together, sings together! So come on all of you happy people!
Open your mouths, and let's sing and swing, together!
Down in the valley!

Down in the valley, valley so low-oh-oh-oh-oh
Late in the evening

The Chipmunks:
Hear the train blow-oh-oh-oh-oh

Dave:
Hear the train blowing, hear the train blow-oh-oh-oh-oh
Late in the evening

The Chipmunks:
Hear the train blow

Dave:
Ahhh, that was beautiful! Wonderful!
Now, let's sing the second chorus, and I want to hear all you people over there.
And all you good folks ugh over there, and let's put some real heartburn-
Uh- heartbreak in it!

The Chipmunks:
Roses love sunshine, violets love dew-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Angels in Heaven know I love you-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Know I love you, dear, know I love you-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
Angels in Heaven know I love you-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh

Dave:
Great, great! Now everybody open your mouths and put your souls into it!

The Chipmunks:
Write me a letter, send it by mail-ail-ail-ail-ail
Send it in care of Birmingham jail-ail-ail-ail-ail
Write me a letter send it by mail-ail-ail-ail-ail

Dave:
Heheh, goodnight folks.
