I give up, close enough!

 

Lonnie Donegan--'Does You're 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 & 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
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 & right?
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor
on the bedpost overnight?

Now the nation rise as one
To send their wanted son
Up to the White House, yes,
The nation's only White House
To voice their discontent
Unto the Pres-I-dent
The bonny burning question,
What has swept this continent?
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 & right?
Does your chewing gum lose its flavor
On the bedpost overnight?

On the bedpost overnight
Hello there,
I love you and
The one who holds you tight!
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday, Sat'day night
On the bedpost overnight
A dollar is a dollar & a dime is a dime!
He'd sing another chorus
But he hasn't got the time
On the bedpost overnight, yeah!

******

I give up, not sure I've got it correct, but close enough:

NOT Lonnie Donegan:

 

Oh me oh my oh you
Whatever will we I do?
Hallelujah,
There isn't any answer
I'd give a lot of dough
If only I could know
The answer to my question
Why the news coverage blows?

Does your bombshell lose it's impact
if forever you doth say?
if you hear it said several times an hour?
Are you forced to hear it in spite?
If you're forced to hear it, several times a day,
do you grind your teeth, and your knuckles turn white?
If you're forced to hear it several times a day,
do you long to claw at your eardrums?
Are you heaving left and right?
Does your bombshell lose its impact
when you say it every day and night?

Here comes a straight-faced talking head
gleefully reporting with a sense of dread
on every station, never going to change
Assaulting our senses, driving me insane! It's the same, day after day.
the same bomb-cratered face,
incapable of feeling shame,
nothing ever changes, and for days

Does your bombshell lose it's impact
if forever you doth say?
if you hear it said several times an hour? and the saying never goes away?
Does it turn you from grin to dour,
do you grind your teeth, and your knuckles turn white?
If you're forced to hear it several times a day,
do you long to claw at your eardrums?
Are you heaving left and right?
Does their bombshell lose its impact
when they say it every day and night?

Now the nation heaves as one
before the last report is done
Up to the White House, yes,
The nation's only White House
To voice their discontent
about the Pres-I-dent
The bonny burning question,
Why his undeserved fame swept this continent?
If he's so stupid, why should we care what he thinks?
Why not have a party, and drink too many drinks?
Boom boom

Does your bombshell lose it's impact
if forever you doth say?
if you hear it said several times an hour?
Are you forced to hear it in spite?
If you're forced to hear it, several times a day,
do you grind your teeth, and your knuckles turn white?
If you're forced to hear it several times a day,
do you long to claw at your eardrums?
Are you heaving left and right?
Does your bombshell lose its impact
when you say it every day and night?
