Does the Spearmint Lose Its Flavor

Lyrics

(Music by Ernest Breuer, 1924, Lyrics by Billy Rose, Marty Bloom)

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?

Does the spearmint lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?
Would you use it on your collar when your button’s not in sight?
Put your hand beneath your feet and you will find it there alright
Does the spearmint lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?

Does the spearmint lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?
If your teacher tells you not to chew it, swallow it for spite
Could you grab it with your tonsils and then swing it left and right?
Does the spearmint lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?

*or chewing gum
