Does the Spearmint Lose Its Flavor on the Bedpost Overnight?

Does the Spearmint Lose Its Flavor on the Bedpost Overnight?
(LYR: Billy Rose & Marty Bloom; MUS: Ernest Breuer, 1924)

 A7               D      A7                 D
Oh me, oh my, oh you; I don't know what to do
G     D                        G  D
Hallelujah, the question is peculiar
      A7            D
It's got me on the go
     A7            D
I'd give a lot of dough
    E7                                         A
If someone here would tell me is it yes or is it no
         A7        D                          A7
CHORUS: Does the spearmint lose its flavor on the bedpost over night?
                 A7       D              D7
        If you chew it in the morning will it be too hard to bite
                   G              A7
D               G
        Can't you see I'm going crazy, won't somebody put me right
                   D                             E7     A7    D
        Does the spearmint lose its flavor on the bedpost over night?

The nation rose as one, and sent its fav'rite son
To the White House, this mighty country's lighthouse
He saw the President; he said that "I've been sent
To solve the burning question that involves the continent."

CHORUS: Does the spearmint lose its flavor on the bedpost over night?
        If you pull it out like rubber will it snap right back and bite?
        If you paste it on the left side will you find it on the right?
        Does the spearmint lose its flavor on the bedpost over night?

Here comes the blushing bride; the "boob" right by her side
To the altar, as steady as Gibraltar
The bridegroom has the ring; it's such a pretty thing
He puts it on her finger and the choir begins to sing

CHORUS: Does the spearmint lose its flavor on the bedpost over night?
        Would you use it on your collar when your button's not in sight?
        Put your hand beneath your seat and you will find it there all right
        Does the spearmint lose its flavor on the bedpost over night?
