Yanqui Doodle Dandy

Happy Yesterday. For all you Daily Heller readers who don’t know the words, let’s all sing together in honor of Yankee Doodle’s birthday (and don’t forget the macaroni).

Yankee Doodle went to town

A-riding on a pony Stuck a feather in his cap 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


There was Captain Washington Upon a slapping stallion A-giving orders to his men I guess there were a million. Yankee Doodle, keep it up Yankee Doodle dandy Mind the music and the step And with the girls be handy


Yankee Doodle went to town A-riding on a pony Stuck a feather in his cap And called it macaroni. Yankee Doodle, keep it up Yankee Doodle dandy Mind the music and the step And with the girls be handy


Yankee Doodle, keep it up Yankee Doodle dandy Mind the music and the step

And with the girls be handy
