I courted a girl named Alice, it really was a sin,
I worried so about her, it made me awful thin;
She wasn't quite perfection, bad habits she had one,
And that was worse than anything, 'twas chewing horrid gum.

I never got a word from her but yum, yum, yum.
her pretty little mouth was always filled with chewing gum;
For she'd sit and chew 'till her lips got black and blue,
I wish she would get through with chewing gum, gum, gum.

To parties and to sociables, of course, we went for fun.
But she never went out evenings without her mouth chock full of gum;
And when I tried to dance with her upon the floor or heath,
I couldn't hear the music for the rattle of her teeth. -Chorus.

I took her out a riding, the horse began to rear.
He kicked the wagon over, sent her whizzing through the air;
When she came down upon the ground, I thought that she was dumb,
For the only sound I got from her was yum, yum, yum.- Chorus.
