Lyrics

Alvin:
Boy Doctor Dolittle sure was a wonderful movie Dave.

Theodore:
Yeah I sure liked all those animals and people.

Simon:
A delightful conglomeration of both species Dave.

Dave:
I Guess I'll have to agree with you fellas.
It was a mighty fine picture.

Alvin:
Dave can we go and see it again?

Theodore:
Yeah Dave let's go see it once more.

Dave:
Now wait a minute fellas.
You mean you've forgotten what it was about already?

Alvin:
Oh no we remember it very well.

Theodore:
Yeah.

Dave:
Okay I'll tell you what I'll do fellas.
I'll give you a Doctor Dolittle test and I'll even help you a little.
And if you pass I'll take you to see it again.
What do ya say?

Theodore:
Boy what a deal.

Alvin:
Let's have that test.

Dave:
Alright here we go.
Who was Doctor Dolittle?

Alvin:
He was a wonderful man who loved animals and they loved him.

Dave:
Did he have any human friends?

Alvin:
Sure Mathew Mud was one of them.
He even sang about the doctor.

Dave:
Very good.
Now let's see if you remember exactly how the song goes.

Alvin:
My friend the Doctor says the moon is made of apple pie
And once a month it's eaten by the sun
And that is why, up in the sky
You'll find as every month goes by
Somebody in the sky's making another one

My friend the Doctor says the sun is made of cheddar cheese
The Doctor even knows the reason why
The facts are these
Try if you please
Pretending you're a lonely cheese
Wouldn't you want to try finding an apple pie?

Dave:
Of course you would

The Chipmunks:
Maybe what the Doctor tells me
Isn't altogether true
But I love every tale he tells me
I don't know any better ones

Alvin:
Do you?

The Chipmunks:
My friend the Doctor says the world is full of fantasy
And who are you and I to disagree
Let's hope and pray
That is the way
The life we love will always stay
For my friend the Doctor and me

Dave:
Now any man who understands a chipmunk
Can't be reckoned altogether bad
The same way that a lunatic
Who's Patron Saint is Patrick
Can't be reckoned altogether mad

The Doctor's very smart
An Irish man at heart
His favourite colour
Sure, it must be green
And also he's a man
Who'll blarney when he can

The Chipmunks:
Let me explain the sort of thing I mean

My friend the Doctor says the stars are made of lemon drops
The bigger ones are lollipops and ice
The clouds have shops up on the tops
That sell you sweets and soda pops
What do they call the place

Alvin:
Isn't it paradise?

Dave:
My friend the Doctor says that every time it starts to rain
And people run indoors again, in swarms
If you remain
Out in the rain
You'll think you're drinking pink champagne
And you will spend your life praying for thunderstorms

The Chipmunks:
Maybe what the Doctor tells me
Isn't altogether true
But I love every tale he tells me
I don't know any better ones

Alvin:
Do you?

The Chipmunks:
My friend the Doctor says the world is full of fantasy
And who are you or I to disagree

The Chipmunks & Dave:
Let's hope and pray
That is the way
The life we love will always stay
For my friend the Doctor and me

My friend the Doctor and me
My friend the Doctor and me
