Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavour

Lonnie Donegan

 GDG
 Oh-me, oh-my, oh-you
 GDG
 Whatever shall I do
 CGDG
 Hallelujah, the question is peculiar
 GDG
 I'd give a lot of dough
 GDG
 If only I could know
 A7
 The answer to my question
 D
Is it yes or is it no  

 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
 CD
 Can you catch it on your tonsils
 GC
 Can you heave it left and right
 G
 Does your chewing gum lose its flavour
 DG
 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
 A7DG
 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

 A7DG
 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

 A7DG
 On the bedpost overnight, 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!
