"Does Your Chewing Gum Lose its Flavour (on the Bedpost Overnight)"
By Lonnie Donegan

Oh me, oh my, oh you.
Whatever shall I do?
The question is peculia'.
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 flavor 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 and you heave it left and right?
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?

Here comes a blushing bride--
The groom is by her side--
Up to the altar
Just as steady as Gibraltar,
And 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: (Ch)

Now the nations rise as one
To stand there on its own
Up to the White House,
Yeah, the nation's only White House,
To voice their discontent
Unto the president
Upon the burning question what has swept this continent:
If tin whistles are made of tin, what do they make foghorns out of? (Ch)

On the bedpost overnight.
Y'know that I love and I wanna hold you tight
On Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Sat'day night.
On the bedpost overnight.
A dollar is a dollar and a dime is a dime.
He'd sing another chorus but he hasn't got the time.
On the bedpost overnight.
