I wonder if any of you out there are old enough to remembering that song, "Does The Spearmint Lose Its Flavor On The Bedpost Overnight? I sure do. It was popular back in 1950, but I always remembered it, maybe not all the verses, but most of them. Just to get you started and maybe to let that tune bounce back and forth in your head all day, here are a couple of the many verses:
Oh me, oh my, oh you, I don't know what to do
Hallelujah, the question is peculiar
It's got me on the go, I'd give a lot of dough
If someone here would tell me, is it yes or is it no?Does the spearmint lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?
If you chew it in the morning, will it be too hard to bite?
Can't you see I'm going crazy, won't somebody put me right?
Does the spearmint lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?
Ok, do you remember it now?
This, and the song "Dead Skunk in the Middle of the Road,
always seem to keep playing in my head.
Now, you all have a great day, you hear?
