Lyrics

Dave:
Ah, isn't it beautiful boys? The ancient land of Japan!

Alvin:
Boy, sure is pretty.

Theodore:
It sure is!

Alvin:
I'm hungry! I want a banana.

Dave:
Stop it Alvin. Now, there's famous Mt. Fujiyama
And look at the pretty cherry blossoms!
This is a land that has everything: rice, fish

Alvin:
Any bananas?

Dave:
No Alvin, they don't grow any

Alvin:
I want a banana!

Simon:
Good idea! Let's have a banana.

Theodore:
Yeah, banana!

Dave:
Sssh, boys let's not make a fool of ourselves.
Don't do anything to embarrass me, I'll never bring

The Chipmunks:
Wish we had a Japanese banana
It would be so very nice
Want a juicy Japanese Banana
Don't want the cherries and rice

We can see they have so many things
And we are glad that it's so!
But do they grow a Japanese banana
That's what we like to know!

Dave:
Did you have to do that Alvin?

Alvin:
What?

Dave:
You and your brothers I mean, singing about a banana like that.

Alvin:
We're hungry for bananas!

Dave:
There are no bananas. There are plenty of cherries.

Alvin:
Do you like cherries?

Dave:
Well, as a matter of fact I do.
I like cherries.

Alvin:
We like bananas!

Dave:
Alvin, I told you to be polite on this trip,
Now will you please calm down and stop this fool

The Chipmunks:
Wish we had a Japanese banana
It would be so very nice
Want a juicy Japanese Banana
Don't want the cherries and rice

We can see they have so many things
And we are glad that it's so!
But do they grow a Japanese banana
That's what we like to know!

Alvin:
That's the worst banjo player I've ever heard.

Dave:
That's not a banjo, Alvin; that's a shamisen.

Alvin:
That's the worst shamisen player I've ever heard.
Do they have any grapes here?
