Yankee Doodle Dandy George M. Cohen

    I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy
    A Yankee Doodle, do or die;
    A real live nephew of my uncle Sam’s,   
    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 a Yankee Doodle boy.

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 Dixey 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?
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 upon 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?
