John sent the tea from o'er the sea with heavy duties
rated, But whether hyson or bohea I never heard it stated. Then Jonathan to pout began, — he laid a strong

the cargo. Then Johnny sent a regiment, big words and looks
to bandy, Whose martial band, when near the land, played " Yankee doodle Dandy." Yankee doodle, keep it up, Yankee doodle dandy, I '11 poison with a tax your cup; you — " Yankee doodle dandy."

last defeated, And " Yankee Doodle " was the march to which his
troops retreated.
