Songs That Every Child Should Know
Cousin Simon grew so bold,
I thought he would have cocked it;
It scared me so I shrinked it off And hung by father's pocket. Yankee Doodle, keep it up, etc
And Cap'n Davis had a gun, He kind of clapt his hand on 't,
And stuck a crooked stabbing iron Upon the little end on 't.
Yankee Doodle, keep it up, etc.
And there I see a pumpkin shell
As big as mother's bason, And every time they touched it off
They scampered like the nation. Yankee Doodle, keep it up, etc.
I see a little barrel, too,
The heads were made of leather; They knocked on it with little clubs
And called the folks together. Yankee Doodle, keep it up, etc.
And there was Cap'n Washington, And gentle folks about him;
They say he 's grown so 'tarnal proud He will not ride without 'em. Yankee Doodle, keep it up, etc.
He got him on his meeting clothes
Upon a slapping stallion; He sat the world along in rows,
In hundreds and in millions. Yankee Doodle, keep it up, etc.
