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 ...
I'm a full-time writer, not the rock singer. Mostly science fiction and fantasy. Some mystery/technothriller stuff; some animated TV, couple movie scripts in turnaround or waiting to get there. I've been a student of silat with Maha Guru Stevan Plinck for twenty years. I play guitar a little, and am learning to play the 'ukulele. It's all good.
