Every Boy, Every Girl is an original song detailing the history of Munch's Make Believe Band. It was introduced in 1997 in honor of Chuck E. Cheese's 20th anniversary before being re-recorded for the 30th and 40th anniversaries.

Lyrics

1997 version

Now life is like a scrapbook
Memories on every page
You look back with laughter
And you never feel your age
Now I've been thinking lately
About 20 years ago
And what brought us together
For this very special show
I left my home so long ago
Waved goodbye to my folks
Went to every club across New York
With cheesy songs & jokes
And then I did a show for kids
And man did we have fun
That was the day that changed my life
My dream had just begun
Every boy, every girl
Every kid around the world
Can have a place to laugh and sing and play
Kids can do what they please
When they come to Chuck E. Cheese
They'll be rockin' here tomorrow
Like they're rockin' here today
20 years can this be true
I guess it has to be
I sold pizza door to door, when Chuck E. came to me
He said, "I need a master chef, who could sing a song"
I sang out operatically, I want to come along
Someone said "go west, young mouse,"
And that's where we went
Off to California, though we hardly had a set
We found a place that was falling down
It was quite a site to see
It needed work, but we didn't care
We knew what it could be
Every boy, every girl
Every kid around the world
Can have a place to laugh and sing and play
Kids can do what they please
When they come to Chuck E. Cheese
They'll be rockin' here tomorrow
Like they're rockin' here today
When the place was falling down
I came running through the door
My oh my, the pizza pie was I was looking for
Now Chuck made me a talent scout
As I travelled across the land
To find 2 more musicians
To fill his all-star band.
I was just a country dog with a cabin in the woods
Playing a guitar willowed out of the log and the job sure sounded good
I was a singer with just my wings
Barely out of the nest
when I joined up with Chuck E. Cheese
I knew I found the best
The Stage was set, the lights came down
And up the curtain flew
That show went great 20 years ago, and all the rest have too
And the kids who came to see us
Now have children of their own
It's like we're all a family
And this is still your home
Every boy, every girl
Every kid around the world
Can have a place to laugh and sing and play
Kids can do what they please
When they come to Chuck E. Cheese
They'll be rockin' here tomorrow
Like they're rockin' here today
Now life is lie a scrapbook
Memories on every page
You look back with laughter
And you'll never feel your age
Now I've been thinking lately, about all the things we did
And we'll still be here in 20 years 'cause kids will still be kids!
Every boy every girl
Every kid around the world
Can have a place to laugh and sing and play
Now the kids are having fun
But we've only just begun,
We'll be rocking here tomorrow like we're rocking here today. (3x)

2017 version

You know, here at Chuck E. Cheese's, we're all about fun
Making memories everyday
You'll look back with laughter, and you'll never feel your age
I've been thinking lately, about all those years ago
And what brought us all together, for this very special show
As a younger mouse I always knew
I was meant for something more
I got on a bus, with nothing but my dream
I was heading for New York
I found a place, that served good pizza
Ordered one with extra cheese
Made by a funny man with a mustache
His name was Pasqually
Every boy, every girl
Every kid around the world
Can have a place to laugh and sing and play
Kids can do what they please
When they come to Chuck E. Cheese
They'll be rockin' here tomorrow
Like they're rockin' here today
My restaurant, I was losing cash
I was about to close my doors
I knew my pizza was really great
But my guests wanted something more
Chuck E. offered to help me out
A little mouse, what could he do?
Then he started singing
My dreams were about to come true
Chuck became our main attraction
I gave him a set of keys
Then I put his name above the door
Welcome to Chuck E. Cheese!
We booked a gig in Nashville
We set out on our way
Our van broke down in front of a farm
But made a new friend that day
Every boy, every girl
Every kid around the world
Can have a place to laugh and sing and play
Kids can do what they please
When they come to Chuck E. Cheese
They'll be rockin' here tomorrow
Like they're rockin' here today
I was playin’ my bass out on the porch
When the mouse and Chef showed up
They had a gig and a busted motor
I told them, you’re in luck
My uncle Jed’s a mechanic
I’m Jasper, shake my paw
I said, we could use a bass guitarist
Why don’t you come along
Our band was growing and things were good
Still I felt we were incomplete
I remembered this singing gamer chick
That didn’t miss a beat
Chuck asked me to join with him
I didn’t know what to say
The most fun mouse I’ve ever seen
I sang out a big hooray!
Back in New York with our new friends
We took the stage to sing
We all did great yet we all knew
Still something was missing
Then this purple monster, alien thing
With a keyboard still eating his lunch
Jumped on the stage and started playing too, and said
Hi! I’m Mr. Munch!
Every boy, every girl
Every kid around the world
Can have a place to laugh and sing and play
Kids can do what they please
When they come to Chuck E. Cheese
They'll be rockin' here tomorrow
Like they're rockin' here today
We were having so much fun
Making memories every day
We even expanded to more locations
The first in San Jose!
Now I’ve been thinkin’ lately
About all the things we did
And we’ll still be here years from now
Where a kid can be a kid
Every boy, every girl
Every kid around the world
Can have a place to laugh and sing and play
Kids can do what they please
When they come to Chuck E. Cheese
They'll be rockin' here tomorrow
Like they're rockin' here today
They’ll be rockin’ here tomorrow
Like they’re rockin’ here today
We’ll be rockin’ here tomorrow
Like we’re rockin’ here today

Trivia
