Cue Sheet


Let's circle to the left
I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy
Yankee Doodle do or die

Walk all around the corner lady, see-saw your own
Men star right around you fly, then do an
Allemande left the corner, come home and you swing
Swing with your girl and promenade, well
Yankee Doodle went to London riding on a pony
I am that Yankee Doodle Boy

FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads pass the ocean and then recycle you know
Double pass thru, first two left, the next two right
Star thru and now pass thru you go
Trade by, swing thru and then
Boys trade, turn thru, allemande left you know
Pass by one and take the next and promenade
Yankee Doodle went to London riding on a pony
I am that Yankee Doodle Boy

The 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 Doodle 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 phony?

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 on 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 phony?


Lyrics by George M. Cohan.
