Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavour  Lonnie Donegan

[G]Oh-me, o[D]h-my, oh[G]-you
[G]Whatever[D] shall I[G] do
[C]Halleluj[G]ah, the [D]question is pecu[G]liar
[G]I'd give[D] a lot o[G]f dough
[G]If only [D]I could [G]know
[A7]The answer to my question
Is it yes or is it no  [D]


[G]Does your chewing gum lose its flavour
[D]On the bedpost overnight

If your mother says don't chew it
[G]Do you swallow it in spite
[C]Can you catch it on your[D] tonsils
[G]Can you heave it[C] left and right
[G]Does your chewing gum lose its flavour
[D]On the bedpost o[G]vernight

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
[A7]On the bedpost over[D]night[G]

(Lonnie)
I love you and I need you and I want to hold you tight

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
Thursday, Friday, Sat'day night

[A7]On the bedpost over[D]night[G]

[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

[A7]On the bedpost over[D]night[G], yeah

A few words are not correct in this song! In the last stanza--Come on along baby,I wanna hold you tight. He'd sing another chorus but he hasn't got the time!
