Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Well the 4 little ladies chain go straight across that ring
Chain the ladies right back home, we're gone again
All join hands, circle to the left go dancing round the hall
Allemande left the corner girl, and weave around that hall
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight
Dosado your honey, promenade and hug her tight
You promenade this lady, and you ask her real polite
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight


FIGURE    Mainstream, unknown progression

Head 2 couples square thru 4 hands around you go
To the outside two and dosado all the way around and then
Boys run and now, cast off 3/4 round
Make lines of 4, up to the middle and come right back
Well a right & left thru, turn that girl and now slide thru
Swing the corner girl, she'll promenade with you
You promenade this lady and you 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.
