Gumpa Lumpa Dum-pa-dee-do
I have another podcast for you
Gumpa Lumpa Dum-pa-da-dind
This episode of The Story Behind

Gum's been around for quite a long while
Freshening your breath and whitening your smile
It is a favorite for astronaut crews
But a pain when stuck on your shoes

The way toilet paper does

Gumpa Lumpa Dump-pa-dee-da
I hope you like random trivia
You will learn all about this goo
Like the Gumpa Lumpa Dump-pa-dee-do

I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Chewing Gum.

The role of  Leon Trotsky was played by Chris Nesi from the House of #EdTech Podcast.

The Gumpa Lumpa song was sung by Craig from The Ultra Podcast.
