Lonnie Donegan?

I've been on a Lonnie Donegan kick lately and I noticed from the Wikipedia Article on this song that "Does The Spearmint Lose its Flavor On The Bedpost Overnight?" and "Does Your Chewing Gum Lose It's Flavor (On The Bedpost Over Night)" are not really alternate names for the exact same song. Lonnie Donegan rewrote a lot of the lyrics (and arrangement) for his version, and it's his version that appears on TMS. I think perhaps he should be mentioned in this article, but I'm not sure where. I also suspect that the TMS crew may have been Lonnie Donegan fans as his "there's not mushroom inside" joke sounded fairly fresh to the live audience on his recording of "My Old Man's a Dustman" and I know this joke has been on TMS as well.

The mushroom line is from the Brooke Shields episode when Floyd as the Caterpillar tells Alice to take a piece from the bottom "because there ain't mush-room on top!" —Scott (talk) 23:15, June 16, 2010 (UTC)
