"Yankee Doodle"

Father and I went down to camp along the Captain Goodin'

And there we saw the men and boys as thick as hasty puddin'.

Yankee Doodle keep it up. Yankee Doodle dandy,

Mind the music and the step, and with the girls be handy. 

And there we saw a thousand men, as rich as Squire David.

And what they wasted every day I wish it could be sav-ed.

Yankee Doodle keep it up, Yankee Doodle dandy,

Mind the music and the step, and with the girls be handy. 

And there was Captain Washington upon a slapping stallion,

A-giving orders to his men, I guess there was a million.

Yankee Doodle keep it up, Yankee Doodle dandy,

Mind the music and the step, and with the girls be handy.
