OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Now walk around that corner girl, turn a right hand round your own
Men star left, go once around, with an arm around your own
Star promenade your lady, you'll hug and squeeze her tight
Then all 4 ladies backtrack, turn the partner with a right
Then allemande left the corner, and a grand ole right & left
And when you meet your honey, you promenade your pet
Take her home and swing her and ask her real polite
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Now 1 & 3 (2 & 4) a right & left thru, turn on around and then
Star thru and pass thru, right & left thru again
Duck to the middle and square thru 3/4 round and then
Allemande left your corner, grand right & left, you'll sing
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?
Dosado your partner, swing the corner, hug her tight
Take her home and swing her and ask her real polite
Does your chewing 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.
 
Comments

Chorus variation
In the middle chorus the third line is changed to
?Can you lend it to you brother and expect to get it back?

This song when perfromed LIVE by Donegan and his band was filled with jokes and other sight gags the above being one of the non standard lyrics
