"Chewing Gum" as written by Hannah Robinson and Richard Phillips....
Hey Annie,
Well look at you.
Is that a new boy stuck on your shoe?
Come on Annie, How is it so?
You've always got a new bubble to blow.

I'm gonna tell you how it's gonna get done.
I'm just a girl, that's only chewing for fun.
I spit it out when all the flavor has gone.
Wrap him round your finger like you're playing with gum.

[Chorus]
Oh no, oh no!
You've got it all wrong.
How can you
Think you're chocolate
When you're chewing gum?
Oh no, oh no!
A slip of the tongue
How can you
Think you're chocolate
When you're chewing gum?
Oh no.

Was there anything else?

Hey Annie, you used to be,
The only girl to take it seriously.
Come on Annie, tell us your trick.
On how you keep on getting boys to stick?

Okay, I'll tell you but you'll never look back
It's my selection; it's my pick of the pack.
Well, hot dog I'm a chewing machine.
It makes me smile, and it keeps my teeth clean.

[Chorus]

Oh no, oh no!
You've got it all wrong.
How can you
Think you're chocolate
When you're chewing gum?
Oh no, oh no!
A slip of the tongue
How can you
Think you're chocolate
When you're chewing gum?

Oh no, oh no!
You've got it all wrong.
How can you
Think you're chocolate
When you're chewing gum?
Oh no, oh no!
No you're not the one.
How can you
Think you're chocolate
When you're chewing gum?
Oh No!

I don't want to settle down, I just want to have fun.
I don't want to settle down, I just want to chew gum.
I don't want to settle down, I just want to have fun.
I don't want to settle down, I just want to chew gum.

[Chorus]

Oh no, oh no!
You've got it all wrong.
How can you
Think you're chocolate
When you're chewing gum?
Oh no, oh no!
A slip of the tongue
How can you
Think you're chocolate
When you're chewing gum?

Oh no, oh no!
You've got it all wrong.
How can you
Think you're chocolate
When you're chewing gum?
Oh no, oh no!
No you're not the one.
How can you
Think you're chocolate
When you're chewing gum?
Oh no!

Oh no!

    General CommentEveryone's got it right, I believe.

    Annie is having a conversation with her friend, and Annie is telling her how boys are just material to her - Just chewing gum. When she gets bored (no more flavor) she just spits it out (gets rid of him) and picks another from the pack. Cause Annie is hot and has a whole line-up of guys haha.

    She's only in this relationship for material / sexual means, easily dispensable men. Of course the guys think they are chocolate, delicious and savor-y. But nope! They got it wrong.

    Really smart song lol, I like when songs meanings are not outright it takes a listen. And when artists use metaphors like chewing gum. :D

    General Commentit's about guys being chewing gum. you chew on them a while and spit em out. chocolate is decadent and worth holding on to and cherishing, but "oh no...you're chewing gum". it's about how girlies are fickle.

    General CommentDoes nobody else see the obvious metaphor for annie giving blowjobs? I'm serious... A new "boy" stuck on her shoe. Thats the chewing gum. "You've always got a new bubble to blow", "C'mon Annie , tell us your trick
    of how you keep them golden boys to stay". Yeah.

    General Comment"I'm gonna tell you how its gonna get done"
    she's telling you exactly what its like

    "I'm just a girl that's only chewing for fun!" shes a girl-player she plays guys.

    "Spit it out when all the flavour has gone" use them. take everything yuo can from them and when they have ntoihng left to give, get rid of them!

    "wrap it round ya finger like you're playing with gum" instead of 'it' it's actually 'him' soo..
    "wrap it round ya finger like you're playing with gum"
    wrap him around your finger.. coz its easy!

    and then..

    "you think you're chocolate when you're chewing gum'
    chocolate is like really important, every girl is head over heels for chocolate.. so you think you're really important to her.. when really shes just playing with you = you're chewing guM!

    General CommentHad this song stuck in my head all week after I saw the clip. It's an irritating song, so repetitive.

    General Commentright on interpaul

    i wish people would stop thinking its about some dumb bimbo blonde singing about 'chewing gum'. Annie is pretty fucking cool! She hosted the video clip show rage and it was good, she had really brillant dance songs on there.

    General CommentI agree with nicoleee, although I have a few things to add.

    "Oh no! Oh no! you've got it all wrong. you think you're chocolate when you're chewing gum"
    'chocolate' here refers to a true love and 'chewing gum' is just a boy she's playing around with.

    "Oh no! Oh no! a slip of the tongue. you think you're chocolate but you're chewing gum"
    she accidentally told this chewing gum person that she loves him, so now he thinks he's chocolate.

    General CommentI heard this song first on the game Audition, and it happens to be the one I'm best at. Anyway, I used to think this song was so stupid and it made no sense, but then I realized that "You think you're chocolate but you're chewing gum" means that chewing gum is nice for a while, but then it loses its flavour and then you don't want it. Everyone wants chocolate, it's rich, you never really stop loving chocolate. And she accidentally told this guy that she's in love with him, so now he thinks she'll be with him forever, but in reality he's just going to get spit out. Haha, like that? Leetle joke.
