[Alvin, speaking]
And further more, my dear friends, what this country needs is a great leader! Me! I promise you TWO bicycles in every garage, four Christmases every year and...

[Dave, speaking over Alvin]
Hey Simon, Theodore, what's he doing?
[Simon, speaking]
He's running for President.

[Theodore, speaking]
(Laughs) Yeah, President.

[Dave, speaking]
Really? Well isn't that *gibberish* PRESIDENT?

[Alvin, speaking]
Did you call me?

[Dave, speaking]
Alvin, you can't be President.

[Alvin, speaking]
Why?

[Dave, speaking]
Well, because you're too young, and-

[Alvin, speaking]
In addition, when I'm president...

[Dave, cutting him off]
Alvin be quiet and sing our new song. Now here are the words.
"It's nice,"

[Chipmunks]
It's nice,

[Dave, Speaking]
"It's good,"

[Chipmunks]
It's good.

[Dave, speaking]
"When you live like you should,"

[Chipmunks]
When you live like you should,

[Dave, Speaking]
"In peaceful harmony"

[Chipmunks]
In peaceful harmony,

[Dave, speaking]
"Take our,"

[Chipmunks]
Take our,

[Dave, speaking]
"Advice,"

[Chipmunks]
Advice,

[Dave, speaking]
"The way we live is nice,"

[Chipmunks]
The way we live is nice,

[Dave, speaking]
"In peaceful harmony"

[Alvin]
I hope you vote for me!

[Dave, speaking]
Now quit that, quit it.
"We're so,"

[Chipmunks]
We're so,

[Dave, speaking
"Polite,"

[Chipmunks]
Polite,

[Dave, speaking]
"We hardly ever fight,"

[Chipmunks]
We hardly ever fight,

[Dave, speaking]
"We live in harmony,"

[Chipmunks]
We live in harmony,

[Dave, speaking]
That's better.
"Don't care if we live in a tent,"

[Chipmunks]
Don't care if we live in a tent,

[Dave, speaking]
"Just as long as we pay the rent,"

[Chipmunks]
Just as long as-

[Alvin, interrupting]
I'm your president!

[Dave, speaking]
"It's nice,"

[Chipmunks]
It's nice,

[Dave, speaking]
"It's good,"

[Chipmunks]
It's good,

[Dave, speaking]
"When you live like you should,"

[Chipmunks]
When you live like you should,

[Dave, speaking]
"In peaceful harmony,"

[Alvin]
In Washington, D.C!

[Dave, speaking]
Stop changing the words!

[Alvin, speaking]
And with me in the White House-

[Dave, shouting]
ALVIN!

[Alvin, speaking]
And, another thing, dear friends. Why shouldn't we have a penny ice cream cone?

[Theodore, speaking]
Uh, I don't know!

[Alvin, speaking]
Theodore, you can be my campaign manager.

[Theodore, speaking]
(laughs) Oh boy, your honor!

[Alvin, speaking]
And Simon, I believe I'll make you vice-president!

[Simon, speaking]
Why not!

[Dave, speaking]
Mr. President, will you and your cabinet kindly sing?

[Chipmunks]
We don't care if we live in a tent,
Just as long as Alvin's President!

[Alvin, speaking]
That's me!

[Simon and Theodore]
He's nice,
He's good,
Send Alvin,
Yes you should,
To Washington D.C!

[Alvin, speaking]
And in conclusion, dear friends,

[Dave, speaking]
Alvin, will you...

[Alvin, speaking]
I am certain you will elect me the next President of the United States of America!

[Simon and Theodore, cheering till fade-out]
We want Alvin!
We want Alvin!
We want Alvin!
We want Alvin!
