This song was written by Billy Rose in 1924 and its original title was "Does Your Spearmint Lose Its Flavor On the Bedpost Overnight."

It became a big hit for Lonnie Donegan in 1960.

(G) Oh me oh (D7) my oh (G) you
Whatever (D7) shall I (G) do?
(C) Hal (G) lelujah
The question (D7) is pe (G) culiar
I'd give a (D7) lot of (G) dough
If only (D7) I could (G) know
The (A7) answer to my question
Is it yes or is it (D7) no?

Does your (G) chewing gum lose its flavor on the (D7) bedpost overnight?
If your mother says don't chew it
do you (G) swallow it in spite?
Can you (C) catch it on your (D7) tonsils?
Can you (G) heave it left and right?
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the (D7) bedpost over (G) night?

Here comes the (D7) blushing (G) bride
The groom is (D7) by her (G) side
(C) Up to the (G) altar
Just as steady (D7) as Gi (G) braltar
The groom has (D7) got the (G) ring
And it is such a (D7) pretty (G) thing
But (A7) as he slips it on her finger
The choir begins to (D7) sing...

Does... your...
(G) chewing gum lose its flavor on the (D7) bedpost overnight?
If your mother says don't chew it
do you (G) swallow it in spite?
Can you (C) catch it on your (D7) tonsils?
Can you (G) heave it left and right?
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the (D7) bedpost over (G) night?

The nation (D7) rise as (G) one
To send their (D7) only (G) son
(C) Up to the (G) Whitehouse
The nation's (D7) only (G) Whitehouse
To voice their (D7) discon (G) tent
Unto thy (D7) presi (G) dent
a (A7) fondly burning question
what has swept this conti (D7) nent...

Does... your...
(G) chewing gum lose its flavor on the (D7) bedpost overnight?
If your mother says don't chew it
do you (G) swallow it in spite?
Can you (C) catch it on your (D7) tonsils?
Can you (G) heave it left and right?
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the (D7) bedpost over (G) night?
On the (C) bedpost (D7) over (G) night!
