CHEWIN' GUM (Ella Fitzgerald / Innemee / Betty Peterson) Ella Fitzgerald I don't like steaks or fancy cakes I'm full of ice cream food I have just one affection I really love to chew Lollipops or chocolate drops Have no effect on me But when I have some chewin' gum I'm as happy as can be My mama gave me a penny To buy some candy I didn't want the candy So I bought some chewin' gum (Oh, yum, yum,yum) I love my gum My mama gave me a nickle To buy a pickle I didn't want a pickle So I bought some chewin' gum (Oh, yum, yum,yum) I bought some gum Each time I find myself with a dime I hurry to the store Cause' the boy who sells me chewin' gum Is the one that I adore My mama gave me a quarter For soda water I know I hadn't oughta But I bought some chewin' gum (A big, big fig is good for some) But as for me, I'm happy When I'm chewin' chewin' gum (Contributed/Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2005) ***** CHOO'N GUM (Manny Curtis / Vic Mizzy) Teresa Brewer with Jimmy Lytell & The Dixieland All Stars - 1950 Dean Martin - 1950 The Andrews Sisters - 1950 Don & Lou Robertson - 1950 Yum Yum Kids - 1966 Maria Muldaur - 1998 Also recorded by: Ella Fitzgerald; Toni Harper.
