I don't like steaks or fancy cake
I'm cool to ice cream too
I have just one obsession
I really love to chew

Lollipop and chocolate drop
Have no effect on me
But when I have some chewin' gum 
I'm 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 had an order
But I bought some chewin' gum
(A great big steak
Is good for some)
But as for me I'm happy
When I'm chewin', chewin' gum

Each time I find myself with a dime
I hurry to the store
For 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 had an order
But I bought some chewin' gum
(A great big steak
Is good for some)
But as for me I'm happy
When I'm chewin', chewin', chewin' gum
