Lyrics

Alvin:
Hey, Simon, Theodore!
Let's take Dave's sawhorses and paint 'em to look like real horses!

Simon:
What if Dave comes back?

Alvin:
He won't be back home for a long time!
Theodore, you bring the sawhorses here and we'll paint 'em real pretty!

Theodore:
(Giggle) Oh, boy! Let's go!

The Chipmunks:
As I was a-walking one morning for pleasure
I spied a cowpuncher a-riding along
His hat was throw'd back and his spurs was a-jingling
And as he approached he was singing this song

Yippee-ti-yi-yo, get along, little dogies
It's your misfortune and none of my own
Yippee-ti-yi-yo, get along, little dogies
You know that Wyoming will be your new home

It's early in spring that we round up the dogies
We mark 'em and brand 'em and bob off their tails
We round up our horses, load up the chuck wagon
And then throw the dogies out onto the trail

Yippee-ti-yi-yo, get along, little dogies
It's your misfortune and none of my own
Yippee-ti-yi-yo, get along, little dogies
You know that Montana will be your new home

Alvin:
It's a-whippin' and a-yellin' and drivin' (...) the dogies!
And how I wish you would only go on
It's a-whippin' and a-punchin', now go on, little, you little dogies!
You know that Montana will soon be your new home!

The Chipmunks:
Yippee-ti-yi-yo, get along, little dogies
It's your misfortune and none of my own
Yippee-ti-yi-yo, get along, little dogies
You know that old Fresno will be your new home

Dave:
Yippee-ti-yi-yo, come here, little Chipmunks
Better clean up this mess before I count to three
Put the sawhorses back now, get a move, little Chipmunks
Or you'll think ya met up with Simon Lagrie, hee, hee
