Thread Name: Lyr Req: Chewing Gum / Choo'n Gum / Bubble Gum
Subject: RE: Penny to buy chewing gum/Gershwin?
BBC Radio 4 has an item called something like The Ancestry Tapes, when a famous person names the song they inherited from their people, and the song they'll pass down.

Rhea Perlman was on this morning and she played Choo'n Gum, laughing and singing along delightfully the whole way, with memories of happy Sundays in her gran's.

(Her pass-down tape was Alfalfa singing I'm in the Mood for Love, by the way.)

I think it may have been the Teresa Brewer version, but I'm not sure. Anyone know where there are audio clips of it?
