Yankee Doodle Dandy Song Lyrics
Yankee Doodle went to townA-riding on a pony,Stuck a feather in his capAnd called it macaroni’.
Yankee Doodle keep it up,Yankee Doodle dandy,Mind the music and the step,And with the girls be handy.
Fath’r and I went down to camp,Along with Captain Gooding,And there we saw the men and boysAs thick as hasty pudding.
And there we saw a thousand menAs rich as Squire David,And what they wasted every day,I wish it could be saved.
The ‘lasses they eat it every day,Would keep a house a winter;They have so much, that I’ll be bound,They eat it when they’ve mind ter.
And there I see a swamping gunLarge as a log of maple,Upon a deuced little cart,A load for father’s cattle.
And every time they shoot it off,It takes a horn of powder,and makes a noise like father’s gun,Only a nation louder.
I went as nigh to one myselfAs ‘Siah’s inderpinning;And father went as nigh again,I thought the deuce was in him.
Cousin Simon grew so bold,I thought he would have cocked it;It scared me so I shrinked it offAnd hung by father’s pocket.
And Cap’n Davis had a gun,He kind of clapt his hand on’tAnd stuck a crooked stabbing ironUpon the little end on’t
And there I see a pumpkin shellAs big as mother’s bason,And every time they touched it offThey scampered like the nation.
I see a little barrel too,The heads were made of leather;They knocked on it with little clubsAnd called the folks together.
And there was Cap’n Washington,And gentle folks about him;They say he’s grown so ‘tarnal proudHe will not ride without em’.
He got him on his meeting clothes,Upon a slapping stallion;He sat the world along in rows,In hundreds and in millions.
The flaming ribbons in his hat,They looked so tearing fine, ah,I wanted dreadfully to getTo give to my Jemima.
I see another snarl of menA digging graves they told me,So ‘tarnal long, so ‘tarnal deep,They ‘tended they should hold me.
It scared me so, I hooked it off,Nor stopped, as I remember,Nor turned about till I got home,Locked up in mother’s chamber.
