Lyrics

Dave:
And now, folks, for an old familiar favorite.
We've had many requests for this.
It's a simple, little, sentimental song.
And I certainly hope all you sentimental folks out there are going to enjoy it.
Ready fellas?
Let's go.

Alvin:
Hi all you cats out there.

Dave:
Huh?

Alvin:
Let's take it from the top.
One, two

Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high, like a swinger in the sky
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are

When the swingin' sun has set
When the grass, with dew, is wet
Then I see you from afar
Twinkle, twinkle, little star

Twinkle, twinkle, little-

Dave:
Alright, alright, alright, Alvin!
You guys have had your fun, now do the song the way we rehearsed it.

Alvin:
Like, the song's square dad.
Needs a little action.

Dave:
Huh?

Alvin:
Man, like it should swing.
You know, like, Diz and The Cats would flip it.

Dave:
Huh?

Alvin:
Like, be-bop-de-boop-bop-de-bang-bom-boop.

Dave:
Huh?

Simon:
Dave, what Alvin is saying in his own quaint way, is that this traditional song would sound better if it was given a more modern and contemporary treatment, dad.

Theodore:
Yeah! (giggles) Dad.

Dave:
Alright, that is enough!
Take off those silly sunglasses.
We're gonna do the song the way it's supposed to be done.
All together now.

The Chipmunks:
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky

Dave (Alvin):
Twinkle, twinkle, little star (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
How I wonder what you are (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
When the evening sun has set (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
When the grass, with dew, is wet (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
Then I see you from afar (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)
Twinkle, twinkle, little star (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

Alvin:
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high, like a swinger in the sky
When the swingin' sun has set
When the grass, with dew, is wet
Then I see you from afar

The Chipmunks:
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
