Lyrics

Dave:
What are ya doin', Alvin?

Alvin:
I'm doodling. Polly wolly doodling.

Dave:
Polly wolly doodling?

Alvin:
Yeah!
See here, a grasshopper sittin' on a railroad track.
And a chicken with a whoopin' cough.

Dave:
Wait a minute, I don't understand.

Alvin:
It's a special kind of magic doodling.
I'll tell ya all about it.

Oh, I went down south
To see my Sal sing polly wolly doodle all the day
My Sally is a spunky gal
Sing polly wolly doodle all the day

Fare thee well, farewell
Farewell my fairy fey
Oh, I'm off to Louisiana just to see my Suzy Anna
Sing polly wolly doddle all the day

See, it's as simple as that.

Simon:
Hey Alvin, that was great!

Theodore:
Yeah! Will ya do it again?

Simon:
But this time draw us in too.

Alvin:
Okay.

Oh, my gal she is a maiden fair

The Chipmunks:
Sing polly wolly doodle all the day

Alvin:
With laughin' eyes and curly hair

The Chipmunks:
Sing polly wolly doodle all the day

Alvin:
I'm back, I'm back, I'm back my fairy fey
Oh, I went to Louisiana just to see my Suzy Anna

The Chipmunks:
Singing polly wolly doddle all the day

Oh I came to a river and I couldn't get across
Sing polly wolly doddle all the day
And I jumped upon a fella 'cause I thought he was a horse
Sing polly wolly doddle all the day

Oh, a grasshopper sittin' on a railroad track
Sing polly wolly doddle all the day
He was pickin' his teeth with a carpet tack
Sing polly wolly doddle all the day

Fare thee well, fare thee well
Farewell my fairy fey
Oh, I'm off to Louisiana just to get my Suzy Anna
Singin' polly wolly doddle all the day

Alvin:
So, I went to bed by it was no use

The Chipmunks:
Sing polly wolly doddle all the day

Alvin:
My feet stuck out like a chicken roost

The Chipmunks:
Sing polly wolly doddle all the day

Alvin:
Behind the barn, down on my knees

The Chipmunks:
Sing polly wolly doddle all the day

Alvin:
I thought I heard that chicken sneeze

The Chipmunks
Sing polly wolly doddle all the day

He sneezed so hard with a whoopin' cough
Sing polly wolly doddle all the day
He sneezed his head and tail right off
Sing polly wolly doddle all the day

Fare thee well, farewell
Farewell my fairy fey
Oh, we're back from Louisiana 'cause I found my Suzy Anna
Singing polly wolly doddle all the day
Singing polly wolly doddle all the day
