Major Questions in Life

Written by Billy Rose in 1924, this song originally said "Spearmint" instead of "chewing gum." Lonnie Donegan, the skiffle guy who was a big influence on Lennon and McCartney, changed it because the BBC wouldn't play stuff that used trademarks in it.

But I never knew there was a version with Sha Na Na.

Be warned: This might cause you to go blind, insane, or both ...

Oh my, I remember this song from when I was little! Will undoubtedly be stuck in my head for the rest of the night!
