The Chipmunks:
Down by the old mill stream where I first met you,
With your eyes of blue, dressed in gingham too,
It was there I knew that you loved me true,
You were sixteen, my village queen, by the old mill stream

The London Children's Choir (The Chipmunks):
Down by the old mill stream, where I first met you,
(Not the new one, but the old by the old mill stream)
(Not the last time, but the first time, where I first met you)
With your eyes of blue, dressed in gingham too,
(Not your nose dear, but your eyes dear, so very blue)
(Not me, just you)
It was there I knew, that you loved me true,
(I remembered, still remembered. How could I forget?)
(Really loved me, truly loved me, I remember yet)
You were sixteen, my village queen, by the old mill stream
(So young and sweet, so and not the new one, but the old mill stream)

David Seville:
Alright, real big! Let's go!

The Chipmunks & The London Children's Choir:
You were sixteen, my village queen, by the old mill stream!
