I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy 
A Yankee Doodle, do or die
A real live nephew of my uncle Sam's
Born on the Fourth of July
I've got a Yankee Doodle sweetheart 
She's my Yankee Doodle joy
 Yankee Doodle came to London 
Just to ride the ponies 
I am a Yankee Doodle boy

I'm the kid that's all the candy 
I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy 
I'm glad I am
So's Uncle Sam
I'm a real live Yankee Doodle
Made my name and fame and boodle 
Just like Mister Doodle did
By riding on a pony
I love to listen to the Dixey strain
"I long to see the girl I left behind me"
And that ain't a josh
She's a Yankee, by gosh
Oh, say can you see
 Anything about a Yankee that's a phoney?

I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy 
A Yankee Doodle, do or die
A real live nephew of my uncle Sam's
Born on the Fourth of July
I've got a Yankee Doodle sweetheart 
She's my Yankee Doodle joy
 Yankee Doodle came to London 
Just to ride the ponies 
I am a Yankee Doodle boy

Father's name was Hezikiah 
Mother's name was Ann Maria  Yanks through and through 
Red, white and blue
 Father was so Yankee hearted
When the Spanish War was started 
He slipped upon his uniform 
And hopped up on a pony
My mother's mother was a Yankee true
My father's father was a Yankee too
And that's going some
For the Yankees, by gum
Oh, say can you see
 Anything about my pedigree that's phoney?

I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy 
A Yankee Doodle, do or die
A real live nephew of my uncle Sam's
Born on the Fourth of July
I've got a Yankee Doodle sweetheart 
She's my Yankee Doodle joy
 Yankee Doodle came to London,
Just to ride the ponies 
I am a Yankee Doodle boy
