The Lyrics

The truth is I rarely chew gum at all...
Chiclets, Doublemint, many more kinds.
Dentyne, gives a zing I can't define.
Bazooka Bursts, in my purse, you'll always find
Spearmint and Peppermint, they kinda rhyme.

Who cares what gum we chew?
Cinnaburst, or Juicy Fruit

Spearmint and Peppermint, Teaberry too.
Cigars, cigarettes, ones you can chew
Buy it yourself, try it yourself,
Yeah, yeah.
Buy it yourself, try it yourself,
Yeah, yeah,
Yeah, yeah.

Black Jack, double pack, or Bubble Yum.
Big Red, Godzilla Shreds, Bubble Tape gum.
Denture-safe and sugar-free, nothing is new.
A gum stick for lunatics, crazily chew.

Who cares what gum we chew?
Freshen-up, or Juicy Fruit

Clorets, Nicorette, what can I say?.
We'll fight bad breath, not smoking today.
Big League Chew keeps you out of the snuff
Spearmint and Peppermint, just can't get enough.

Who cares what gum we chew?
I like Cloves and so do you.

Spearmint, Peppermint, Spearmint, Peppermint.

Sha-la-la, sha-la-la.....

Mmmm, Gumdingy! I tried to sing this but I had a wad of bazooka I was a-chawin' on at the time. Well done. I liked this one.

If you're trying to quit, just read the one I just put in for tomorrow, Birg.

Jan, I think if you make any deviation on your name, it counts as a separate entry. That's what happens when you chew gum and type at the same time.

This is one topic that I haven't seen covered before, and you did it very well! Makes me want to do the Teaberry Shuffle again! There's one gum that you didn't mention (probably DKTOG) -- Rose Hip. We used to get it at the local health food store in LA, but it soon disappeared...

What Rick says is true. The parody author list will not tally this one with the rest. It will list this under a different author using the exact name you typed in. It is also case sensitive. You can resubmit and have this entry deleted but the comments and votes go with it, or you can email ChuckyG and ask him very nicely to change it for you.

DKTOS, Jan. But a very good read!!
Jan Unwin - February 22, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, guys. Yes, I realized too late that I put an extra space in my name and have asked ChuckyG if he would please fix it for me. Mari, I don't think I've ever heard of Rose Hip gum. Not being a gum chewer, I had to google a list of gum brand names just to write this parody. I do remember chewing Black Jack as a kid. It was great because you could position the black wad over one of your front teeth and make it look like you were missing a tooth.
