OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Walk all around that corner girl, come back and dopaso
That's her by the left, the corner by the right, the honey by the left elbow
Make an allemande thar and then back on down the line, my friend
Slip the clutch, left allemande and weave all around the ring
Does the chewin' gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?
Swing and whirl with a honey of a girl and promenade her tight
You'll squeeze her hand and look her in the eye and ask her real polite:
Does the chewin' gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade and travel halfway and then
Come down the middle with a right & left thru and turn the girl, my friend
Flutter wheel across, sweep 1/4 more and then
Pass thru, slide thru, do the right & left thru
Send her dixie style, make an ocean wave, boy cross fold
Swing and whirl with a honey of a girl and promenade on home
You'll squeeze her hand and look her in the eye and ask her real polite:
Does the chewin' gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?

Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor

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?

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 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.
Ah, 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 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 and right?
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?

Now the nation rise as one
To send their honored son
Up to the White House.
(Yeah, the nation's only White House.)
To voice their discontent
Unto the pres-i-dent
Upon the burning question
What has swept this continent:
If tin whistles are made of tin, what do they make foghorns out of?
Boom-boom!

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

On the bedpost overnight?
You know that I love you and I wanna hold you tight!
A-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?

Lyrics by Billy Rose and Marty Bloom.
Recorded by Lonnie Donegan And His Skiffle Group.
