American Old Time Song Lyrics: 59 Dewey Youre A Dandy
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 59
DEWEY, YOU'RE A DANDY.
The appended verses were written and recited
by a bright and patriotic young miss of the Tilden School:
Yankee Dewey sailed his boats
Down in Manila Bay, sir:
He found the Spaniards on their floats.
And blew them all away, sir.
Yankee Dewey, keep it up;
O Dewey, you're a dandy!
Yankee Dewey, keep It up:
Yes, Dewey, you're a dandy
Then Yankee Dewey sent us word,
And this is what he said, sir:
"We've sunk their gunboats, every one.
And not a Yankee dead, sir! "-Chorus.
-Detroit Free Press.
