Does Your Chewing Gum Lose It's Flavour:
Lonnie Donnegan. Top of the charts in 1959.

C         G7     C
Oh-me, oh-my, oh,you.
         G7      C
Whatever shall I do?
F         C        G7          C
Hallelu...jah, the question is peculiar.
C          G7     C
I'd give a lot of dough,
C  G7           C
If only I could know.
The answer to my question,
      D7           G
Is it yes or is it no?

G         C          
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor 
on the bedpost overnight?

If your mother says don't chew it, 
       C             C7
do you swallow it in spite?
        F                F7
Can you catch it on your tonsils, 
        Am7               F
can you heave it left and right?
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor 
on the bedpost overnight?

#2. ***(Chords are the same for the rest of it.)***

Here comes a blushing bride,

The groom is by her side.

Up to the altar, just as steady as Gibraltar.

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...



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 Pres-I-dent.

They ponder the  burning question..

what has swept this continent?

SPOKEN: If tin whistles are made of tin, 
what do they make fog horns out of?
Boom boom!

G7                    C

Hello there, I love you and I want to hold you tight!
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday night!
C                  G7
On the bedpost overnight!

A dollar is a dollar and a dime is a dime!
I'd sing another chorus but I haven't got the time!
C                  G7
On the bedpost overnight, yeah!

A fifties smash from Kraziekhat.

tomdoggett:Thanks, mate:I checked out the other lyrics and this was the first time I've heard them. Quite a few more verses, very strange. The record I have is what I posted above.
Thanks for the info. Cheers, mate. KK.

Cool, yeah - wasn't a correction, just something I thought you might enjoy. My dad's band supported him about fifteen years ago so got to meet him - not sure he ever quite sings a song in the same way twice, but that's half the fun I guess! Cheers, your track list is the best thing about this site.
