[D]Mama sent me [A]to the spring, she told me not to [D]stay,
I fell in love with a [A]pretty little girl, and could not get [D]away.
Chawin' chewing [A]gum, chewing chawin' [D]gum,
Chawin' chewing [A]gum, chewing chawin' [D]gum.
First she give me peaches, next she give me pears,
next she give me fifty cents, kissed me on the stairs. + CHORUS
Mommy don't 'low me to whistle, poppy don't 'low me to sing,
they don't want me to marry, I'll marry just the same. + CHORUS
I wouldn't have a lawyer, I'll tell you the reason why,
every time he opens his mouth, he tells a great big lie. + CHORUS
I wouldn't have a doctor, I'll tell you the reason why,
he rides all over the country, and makes the people die. + CHORUS
I wouldn't have a farmer, I'll tell you the reason why,
because he has so plenty to eat, specially a pumpkin pie. + CHORUS
I took my girl to church last night, how do you reckon she done?
She walked right up in the [A]preacher's face,
and chewed her chewing [D]gum.
