Lonnie Donegan - Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor lyrics

Oh me, oh my, oh you Whatever shall I do? Hallelujah The question is peculiar I'd give a lot of dough If only I could know The answer to my question Is it yes or is it no [Chorus:] Does your chewing gum lose it's flavour On the bedpost overnight? If your mother says, don't chew it Do you swallow it in spite? Can you catch it on your tonsils? Can you heave it left and right? Does your chewing gum lose it's flavour On the bedpost overnight? Here comes a blushing bride The groom is by her side Up to the altar Just as steady as Gibraltar Why, the groom has got the ring And it's such a pretty thing But as he slips it on her finger The choir begins to sing [Repeat Chorus:] Now the nation rise as one To send their only son Up to the White House Yes, the nation's only White House To voice their discontent Unto the President They pawn the burning question What has swept this continent? [Lonnie Speaks:] If tin whistles are made of tin What do they make fog horns out of? [Man Shouts:] Boom, boom Does your chewing gum lost it's flavour On the bedpost overnight? If your mother says, don't chew it Do you swallow it in spite? Can you catch it on your tonsils? Can you heave it left and right? Does your chewing gum lose it's flavour On the bedpost overnight? On the bedpost overnight? [Man:] Hello there, I love you and the one who holds you tight [Lonnie:] Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday, Friday, Saturday night On the bedpost overnight [Man:] A dollar is a dollar and a dime is a dime [Lonnie:] He'd sing another chorus but he hasn't got the time On the bedpost overnight, yeah
