Yankee Doodle

Below is a longer version of the song than most folks know, but if you're interested, here is a link to an even longer version.

Yankee Doodle went to town
A-riding on a pony
Stuck a feather in his hat
And called it macaroni.

Yankee Doodle, keep it up
Yankee Doodle dandy
Mind the music and the step
And with the girls be handy.

Father and I went down to camp
Along with Captain Gooding
And there we saw the men and boys
As thick as hasty pudding.


There was Captain Washington
Upon a slapping stallion
A-giving orders to his men
There must have been a million.


I change this line to "with the songs be handy"
