The Dum-Dot Song (I Put A Penny In The Gum Slot)

This song is by Frank Sinatra, features The Pied Pipers and appears on the box set The Columbia Years 1943–1952: The Complete Recordings (1993) and on the album The World of Frank Sinatra (2005).

I overheard the strangest talk right here beside me on the walk,
A little boy and girl of three, here's how it sounded to me:
Dai dut the denny in a dum-dot, dai dut the denny in a dum-dot
Do det the daper and dai det the dum, cause dai dut the denny in the dum-dot.
(What's you say?)
I put the penny in the gum-slot, I put the penny in the gum-slot,
You get the paper and I get the gum, 'cause I put the penny in the gum-slot.
(Eeny meeny minee mo, turn the handle, let it go,)
(Peppermint flavor yummy yum, I got the penny and I get the gum,)
['Cause dai dut the denny in the dum-dot,] I put the penny in the gum-slot.
Do det the daper and dai det the dum
Cause dai dut the denny in the dum-dot.

(Dai dut the denny in the dum-dot, dai dut the denny in the dum-dot.)
(You get the paper and I get the gum, Dai dut the denny in the dum-dot.)
(Put penny in a penny machine, not carin' if it's yellow or green,)
(I'm gonna chew, won't give it to you, (won't?) you know what I mean.)

Tol' the girlie, an' tol' the lad, if you quarrel, I'll be sad.
Made it fair for everyone, gave them the paper and I kept the gum.
[Dai, dai dut the denny in the dum-dot,] I put the penny in the gum-slot.
<Do det the daper and dai det the dum, dai dut the denny in the dum-dot.
<Da dat dum dot.>
