LyricsEdit

Alvin: All right, you guys. Let's take care of business.

Alvin and Brittany: One...

Simon and Jeanette: Two...

Theodore and Eleanor: A 1-2-3-

Alvin: Oh, are you feelin' a peelin'
'Cause your feet won't work?
When they play and bop and boogie
Does your body start to jerk?

Brittany: There's a rock and a fever
It just not all right
See the fever
You make it feel all right

Alvin and Brittany: We got a special kind of leather
That will fill-a all-a, all of the shoes

The Chipmunks and Chipettes: So listen to the news
No more bad shoe blues
Any old rhythmly shoes

Alvin: You got your blue suede shoes

(Simon, Theodore, Jeanette, and Eleanor tossing some bad shoes while working on the new shoes)

Simon, Theodore, Jeanette, and Eleanor: Bad, bad, bad shoe blues

Alvin and Brittany: Oh ooooh

Simon, Theodore, Jeanette, and Eleanor: Bad, bad, bad shoe blues

Brittany: There's a little scissors
Gonna snip it like a siss-snappin' fool

Simon, Theodore, Jeanette, and Eleanor: Doooo

Brittany: If it's very simple
Gonna click it 'til the fit feels cool

Simon, Theodore, Jeanette, and Eleanor: Doooo

Alvin: Well, you can rock it 'til you sock it
Play like it's laid
Any way coulda got a colossal way

The Chipmunks and Chipettes: Listen to the news
No more bad shoe blues
Any old rhythmly shoes

Brittany: You got your blue suede

Simon, Theodore, Jeanette, and Eleanor: Bad, bad, bad shoe blues

Alvin and Brittany: All right

Simon, Theodore, Jeanette, and Eleanor: Bad, bad, bad shoe blues

Alvin: Now you got a new perscription
Make you boogie all day

Simon and Theodore: Uh-huh!

Brittany: Boogie on the basement
Until they're all delayed

Jeanette and Eleanor: Yeah!

Brittany: Rock the bullet, baby
Gonna shout hooray

Alvin: You're the one to steal me from a bad shoe day

Simon, Theodore, Jeanette, and Eleanor: We got a special kind of leather
That will put the rhythm into the shoes

Alvin and Brittany: Oh yeah.

Simon, Theodore, Jeanette, and Eleanor: Ooooh!

The Chipmunks and Chipettes: So listen to the news
No more bad shoe blues
Any old rhythmly shoes

Alvin and Brittany: You got your blue suede

Simon, Theodore, Jeanette, and Eleanor: No more bad shoe blues

Alvin and Brittany: Uh huh

Simon, Theodore, Jeanette, and Eleanor: No more bad shoe blues

Brittany: All right, let's stitch it up 'cause

Simon and Jeanette: What's that?

Theodore and Eleanor: Huh, baby.

Alvin: (grins) Thank you, thank you very much.

Alvin: We like to dedicate these shoes...

Brittany: ...to a trio of swell mice.

Simon and Theodore: The shoemaker and his nephews...

Jeanette and Eleanor: ...Morty and Ferdie.

The Chipmunks and Chipettes: Uh-huh. Thank you. Uh-huh. Thank you. Thank you.

Alvin: A one!

Brittany: A two!

Simon, Theodore, Jeanette, and Eleanor: A 1-2-3-

Mickey, Morty and Ferdie watch as they grinned with excitement. They then danced a bit with the music The Chipmunks and Chipettes are using while they work on the shoes.

Mickey: Oh boy!

Morty: We are rich!

Ferdie: At least until that stupid collector comes.

Pete: (coming in) Who are you calling stupid? (snatches the gold) I'll take that!

Morty and Ferdie: What?!

He then left as Morty and Ferdie gasp.

Morty and Ferdie: (sighs) We are poor.

Mickey: No we aren't. Because I have been studying these blue suede shoes and now I know how to make shoes that are not really ugly!

The trio smiled as they hugged.

Three: Yay!

Mickey: Oh, boys, those chipmunks have been so very good to us, I think the time has come to thank them for their kindness.
