Alvin & The Chipmunks – Down By The Bay lyrics

Down by the bay, where the watermelons grow
Back to this place I dare not go
For if I do, my mother will say
Did you ever see a tuba swimming off to Cuba?
Down by the bay

Down by the bay, where the watermelons grow
Back to this place I dare not go
For if I do, my mother will say
Did you ever see a trumpet munching on a crumpet?
Down by the bay

Did you ever see a drum chewing bubble-gum?
Did you ever see a trombone gnawing on a dog's bone?
Did you ever see a flute shake a parachute?
Did you see a violin kiss a monkey on the chin?

Down by the bay, where the watermelons grow
Back to this place I dare not go
For if I do, my mother will say
Did you ever see a cymbal sipping from a thimble?
Down by the bay

Did you ever see a cello eat a bowl of Jello?
Did you ever see a French horn munch a bag of pop corn?
Did you ever see an oboe dancing with a hobo?
Did you see a clarinet take a kitten to the vet?

Did you ever see a harp playing checkers with a carp?
Did you see a viola eating some granola?
Did you see a bassoon talking to the moon?
Did you ever see a bass race a rocket into space?

Down by the bay, where the watermelons grow
Back to this place I dare not go
For if I do my mother will say
Let the orchestra play 'til the break of day
Down by the bay

(Whole orchestra plays)
