Yankee Doodle


Info

This is the state song of Connecticut, U.S.


Lyrics

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

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

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

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


Short version for recorder playing. Notes: D, E, F#, G, A, B, C
