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”
And that ain’t a josh, she’s a Yankee, by gosh
(Oh, say can you see anything about a Yankee that’s a phoney?)

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

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 his uniform and hopped up on a pony
My mother’s mother was a Yankee true
My father’s father was a Yankee too and that’s going some
For the Yankees, by gum
(Oh, say can you see anything about my pedigree that’s phoney?)
