Does Your Chewing Gum Losing Its Flavour - Lonnie Donegan/Sha Na Na

Does Your Chewing Gum Losing Its Flavour

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 

Does your chewing gum lose its 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 its 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 

Does your chewing gum lose its 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 its flavour 
On the bedpost overnight 

Now the nation rise is one 
To send their only son 
Up to the White House 
Yes, the nation's only White House 
To voice their discontent 
Unto the Pres-I-dent 
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 
Boom, boom 

Does your chewing gum lose its 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 its 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, Sat'day night 

On the bedpost overnight 

(Man) 
A dollar is a dollar and a dime is a dime 

(Lonnie) 
He's singin' out the chorus 
But he hasn't got the time 

On the bedpost overnight, yeah
