YANKEE DOODLE.
Key of A. . "Yankee Doodle!" long ago, They played it to deride us, But now we march to victory. And that's the tune to guide us.
Chorus.—Yankee Doodle ! ha ! ha ! ha ! Yankee Doodle Dandy; How we made the red coats run, At Yankee Doodle Dandy!
To fight is not a pleasant game, But if we must we'll do it; When Yankee Doodle once begins Our Yankee boys go through it.
Chorus.—Yankee Doodle! ha ! ha ! ha ! etc.
And let her come upon the sea, The insolent invader, And there the Yankee boys will be Prepared to serenade her.
Chorus.—Yankee Doodle ! ha ! ha ! ha ! etc.
"Yankee Doodle!" how it brings The good old days before us! 'T was two or three began the song, And millions joined the chorus.
Chorus.—Yankee Doodle ! ha ! ha ! ha ! etc.
"Yankee Doodle!" not alone
The Continent will hear it,
But all the world shall catch the tone,
And every tyrant fear it.
Chorus.—Yankee Doodle ! ha ! ha ! ha ! etc.
