You ever notice how you start off chewing a stick of gum only to discover later the gum is chewing you? ... the flavor's long departed, spit's all dried up, wad tastes of nothing on earth, teeth eroding and yet the jaws keep pounding away. By cud, you're made a zombie, brain hauled off by this insidiously wriggly old gobstopper. That's why I choose snuff, or dip it, rather.

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

a long time ago in california i was driving down the road chewing away on gum. unlike debacle i get rid of the stuff once it loses flavor. anyway, i just spit that sucker out the window in a high arc. coming along in the opposite direction was another car driven by a guy. gum went right in his window and hit him right between the eyes, dead center. i still remember the look of surprise/shock on his face till this day. i'm cracking up while i type this. was'nt you, was it d?

Diane- I wanted to find you an audio file, but the one that I found froze on my 'puter. Here are the lyrics anyway:


Quote:
DOES YOUR CHEWING GUM LOSE ITS FLAVOR (ON THE BEDPOST OVERNIGHT)
Lonnie Donegan & his Skiffle Group

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?

CHORUS:
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, can you heave it left & 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
The groom has got the ring
& it's such a pretty thing
But as he slips it on her finger
The choir begins to sing:

(chorus)

Now the nation rise as one
To send their wanted son
Up to the White House, yes, the nation's only White House
To voice their discontent
Unto the Pres-I-dent
The bonny burning question, What has swept this continent?
(Lonnie speaks: If tin whistles are made of tin, what do they make fog horns out of?
Another man shouts: Boom boom!)

(chorus)

On the bedpost overnight
(Man: Hello there, I love you & 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 & a dime is a dime!
Lonnie: He'd sing another chorus but he hasn't got the time!)
On the bedpost overnight, yeah!
