Yankee Doodle

  • Yankee Doodle went to town
    A-riding on a pony
    He stuck a feather in his hat
    And called it macaroni

    Yankee Doodle, keep it up
    Yankee Doodle dandy
    Mind the music and the step
    and with the girls be handy!

    Father and I went down to camp
    Along with Captain Gooding
    And there we saw the men and boys
    As thick as hasty pudding.

    Yankee Doodle, keep it up
    Yankee Doodle dandy
    Mind the music and the step
    and with the girls be handy

    And there was Captain Washington
    And gentle folks about him
    They say he's grown so tarnal proud
    He will not ride without them.

    Yankee Doodle, keep it up
    Yankee Doodle dandy
    Mind the music and the step
    and with the girls be handy
