Alvin & The Chipmunks – People Are Strange lyrics

[Alien, speaking]
People are earth are not very friendly. I'm trying to blend in. Do you think it's my Bermuda shorts?

[Simon, speaking]
Uh... Ahem... Well... *coughs* It's probably your eight... eyeballs. *Coughs again*

[Theodore, speaking]
Or m-maybe your fingers... *nervous chuckle* Dangling from your three noses...

[Alvin, speaking]
Yeah, you're strange!

[Simon and Theodore, shouting]
Alvin!

[Alvin, speaking]
Uh... I-I mean you're a-a stranger.

[Alvin]
People are strange when you're a stranger,

[Simon and Theodore]
Yeah!

[Alvin]
Faces look ugly when you're alone,

[Simon and Theodore]
Right!

[Alvin]
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted,

[Simon and Theodore]
Sing it!

[Alvin]
Streets are uneven when you're down.

[Chipmunks]
When you're strange,
Faces come out of the rain!
When you're strange,
No one remembers your name,
When you're strange!
When you're strange!
When you're... strange!

People are strange when you're a stranger,
Faces look ugly when you're alone,
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted,
Streets are uneven when you're down.

[Alien, speaking]
Oh yes, this is very true. This is exactly what I have experienced here on your planet. I want to go home.

[Chipmunks]
When you're strange,
Faces come out of the rain!
When you're strange,
No one remembers your name,
When you're strange!
When you're strange!
When you're... strange!

[Alvin]
All right, yeah!

[Dog barking to beat]

[Alien, speaking]
Down, down doggy! I really want to go home. Really I do!

[Chipmunks]
When you're strange,
Faces come out of the rain!
When you're strange,
No one remembers your name,
When you're strange!
When you're strange!
When you're... strange!

People are strange when,

[Alien]
You're a stranger.

Chipmunks]
Faces look ugly,

[Alien]
When you're alone.

[Chipmunks]
Women seem wicked,

[Alien]
When you're unwanted.

[Chipmunks]
Streets are uneven,

[Alien]
When you're down.

[Chipmunks]
When you're strange,

[Alien]
Faces come out of the rain!

[Chipmunks]
When you're strange,

[Alien]
No one remembers your name,

[Chipmunks]
When you're strange!
When you're strange!

[Alien]
When you're... strange!
