Subject: RE: Penny to buy chewing gum/Gershwin?
I stumbled on a tune like the chewin' gum melody in an old FAKE book under the title LA SORELLA. A little internet digging gave me the following information.

The march La Sorella is by the French popular composer Charles Borel-Clerc (1879-1959), although the melody was borrowed from an earlier Spanish popular song, La Mattchiche.

Mark, could this be the answer you seek?
