Yankee Doodle made a speech ;
'Twas very full of feeling1; "I fear," says he, "I cannot fight, But I am good at stealing." Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo, Yankee Doodle dandy,
Hurrah for Lincoln, he's the boy To take a drop of brandy.
Yankee Doodle drew his sword, And practised all the passes ; Come, boys, we'll take another drink When we get to Manassas. Yankee Doodle, doodle doo, Yankee Doodle dandy,
They never reached Manassas plain, And never got the brandy.
Yankee Doodle soon found out That Bull Run was no trifle; For if the North knew how to steal, The South knew how to rifle. Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo, Yankee Doodle dandy,
'Tis very clear I took too much Of that infernal brandy.
Yankee Doodle wheeled about,
And scampered off at full run, And such a race was-never seen As that he made at Bull Run. Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo, Yankee Doodle dandy,
I haven't time to stop just now, To take a drop of brandy.
