Facts:
  • Original version came out in 1924 (CapSuper)
  • Song Lyrics:
    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
    As steady as Gibraltar
    Why, 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 only son
    Up to the White House
    Yes, the nation's only White House
    To voice their discontent
    Unto the Pres-I-dent
    They pawn the burning question
    What has swept this continent

    (Lonnie speaks)
    If tin whistles are made of tin
    What do they make fog horns 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

    (Man)
    Hello there, I love you and 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 and a dime is a dime

    (Lonnie)
    He's singin' out the chorus
    But he hasn't got the time

    On the bedpost overnight, yeah

    Yes. Pages merged. Well spotted.

    Perhaps it's because I'm always cranky (well, crankier) just after I wake up, but people, it won't kill you to search for the damn page in the archive before auto-creating it. Especially blatantly obvious dementia classics like this one.

    I'm not asking for the moon here. I know it's a hassle & you have things to do, but even no song/artistIDs on the playlist are better than redundant auto-created pages that always need merging. Merging is potentially dangerous for the site as mistakes in the numbers can damage the works of other artists/pages. You've already seen that happen recently.

    I liked Donegan's "Rock Island Line" (and even Stan Freburg's parody of it) better than this one.
