Walk all around that corner, hey bow down to your own
Join eight hands, circle to the left around you roam
Reverse back single file, you march it right along
Gents turn into a right hand star, the gals keep movin' on
Pass her once, second time, do a dopaso
It's partner left and the corner right you know
Well your partner left, roll promenade, you get back home, swing your maid
Swing with your Yankee Doodle boy

FIGURE    C4, R-H lady progression

Allemande left and allemande thar, go right & left and star
Boys you wheel right in, now that's an allemande thar
Shoot that star in a full turn, your corner all eight chain
Go right & left and turn this girl, and the 4 little ladies chain
Turn a new girl and whirlaway, turn a right hand round the next
Your corner box the flea and promenade
You promenade go two by two, you get back home and swing you do
Swing with your 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.
