Songs That Every Child Should Know
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 saved. Yankee Doodle, keep it up, etc.
The 'lasses they eat every day Would keep a house a winter;
They have so much, that I '11 be bound
They eat it when they 've mind ter.
Yankee Doodle, keep it up, etc.
And there I see a swamping gun
Large as a log of maple, Upon a deuced little cart,
A load for father's cattle.
Yankee Doodle, keep it up, etc.
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.
Yankee Doodle, keep it up, etc.
I went as nigh to one myself
As 'Siah's inderpinning; And father went as nigh again,
I thought the deuce was in him. Yankee Doodle, keep it up, etc.
