Here are some verses from a rousing patriotic song from the American Revolution:
Yankee Doodle went to town, A-ridin' on a pony. Stuck a feather in his cap, 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.
And there was Captain Washington, Upon a slapping stallion, A-giving orders to his men; I guess there was a million.
(to tune of chorus)
Yankee Doodle is the tune Americans delight in. Twill do to whistle, sing or play And just the thing for fightin'.
