Lyrics

1. I’m the kid that’s all the candy,
I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy,
I’m glad I am, so’s Uncle Sam.
I’m a real live Yankee Doodle,
Made my name and fame and boodle,
Just like Mister Doodle did by riding on a pony.
I love to listen to the Dixie strain,
I long to see the girl I left behind me;
That ain’t a josh,she’s a Yankee, by gosh.
Oh, say can you see,
Anything about a Yankee that’s a phony?

Refrain
I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy,
A Yankee Doodle, do or die;
A real live nephew of my Uncle Sam,
Born on the Fourth of July.
I’ve got a Yankee Doodle sweetheart,
She’s my Yankee Doodle joy.
Yankee Doodle came to London, just to ride the ponies;
I am the Yankee Doodle Boy.

2. Father’s name was Hezikiah,
Mother’s name was Ann Maria,
Yanks through and through, red, white and blue
Father was so Yankee-hearted
When the Spanish war was started,
He slipped on a uniform and hopped upon a pony.
My mother’s mother was a Yankee true,
My father’s father was a Yankee too.
That’s going some, for the Yankees, by gum.
Oh, say can you see
Anything about my pedigree that’s phony? Refrain
