Chip and Dale go out for a night on the town to see their mutual love interest, the night club singer, Clarice. Both chipmunks believe they are the receiptiant of an exclusive invitation, so jealousy abounds when they discover each other waiting outside Clarice’s dressing room door.



Trivia


Clarice’s main vocal performance is with the song, “My Destiny,” which was recorded by Billy Eckstine circa 1947.

The song, “Little Girl,” that the three chipmunks sing together at the end of the short was originally recorded by Whispering Jack Smith in 1931.

Here are the original lyrics for both songs:

 MY DESTINY 
(Livingstone / Mack David)
Billy Eckstine


My destiny is to be in love with you
Makes no difference what you say or do
I must stay in love with you
That's my destiny
It's the thing you can't control
I belong to you both heart and soul
With a love beyond control

They say nothing is sure
Even the sea runs dry
They're wrong, one thing is sure
Love like mine can never die

That's how it is
And that's how it has to be
You are everything in life to me
You are my destiny

That's how it is
And that's how it has to be
You are everything in life to me
You are my destiny

 LITTLE GIRL
(Hyde, Henry)
Whispering Jack Smith

First time that I saw you,
As you went passing by,
I knew my searching days were through.
Then I made my mind up
That you would soon know why
That's when I started telling you:

Little girl, you're the one girl for me,
Little girl, you're as sweet as can be.
Just a glance at you
Meant love from the start,
And oh, what a thrill
Came into my heart!

Little girl, with your cute little ways,
I am yours, for the rest of my days,
And this great big world will be divine,
Little girl, when you're mine, all mine!

And I'm just bubbling over,
My heart is filled with pride,
To think you're in my arms tonight.
I'll be happy always,
With you right by my side,
Each day a new dream of delight.

Little girl, you're the one girl for me,
Little girl! Say, you're as sweet as can be.
Just a glance at you
Meant love from the start,
And oh, what a thrill
Came into my heart!

Little girl, with your cute little ways,
I am yours, for the rest of my days,
And this great big world will be divine,
Little girl, when you're mine, all mine!

Little girl, you're the one girl for me,
Little girl! Say, you're as sweet as can be.
Just a glance at you
Meant love from the start,
And oh, what a thrill
Came into my heart!

Little girl, with your cute little ways,
Say, I am yours, for the rest of my days,
And this great big world will be divine,
Little girl, when you're mine, all mine!
