Tune-"Yankee Doodle." by Richard J. Beamish.

Oh! Yankee Dewey had a fleet and gallant Yankee sailors;
No fear knew he, this brave Dewey, of guns or mines or Weylers.

Yankee Dewey, keep it up, Yankee Dewey, steady;
Keep your eye and powder dry, and with your guns be ready.

From Hong Kong Dewey's fleet was forced with coal he first did fill her:
Then said, "My men, we'll coal again off yonder in Manila." - Chorus.

The Spanish Ships fled to the forts, but Dewoy came right after.
His guns' black lane called loud "The Maine!" his shells shrieked awful
laughter.- Chorus

The Spaniards saw no loopholes there, if to the trees they hied them,
Old Dewey soon, in a balloon, would be up there beside them.- Chorus.

Yankee Dewey kept it up, Yankee Dewey, steady;
He kept his eye and powder dry, and with his guns was ready.-Chorus.
