Cagney the Musical - Yankee Doodle Dandy Lyrics

(Music & Lyrics by George M. Cohan)

Cagney (spoken):
I'm a yankee doodle dandy,
A yankee doodle do or die;
A real live nephew of my uncle sam,
Born on the fourth of july.

(sung slowly)
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 that 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 Mr. Doodle did
By riding on a pony

I love to listen to the dixie strain
I long to see the girl I left behind me;
That ain't no josh,
She's a yankee, by gosh!  
Oh, say can you see
Anything about a yankee that's a phony?

All:
I'm a yankee doodle dandy,
Yankee doodle do or --

Bill:
H. A. Double R. I. G a n spells harrigan

All:
A real live nephew of my uncle sam,
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 that yankee doodleboy.

All:
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

I'm a yankee doodle dandy,
Yankee doodle do or die;
A real live nephew of my uncle sam,
Born on the fourth of july.  
I've got a yankee doodle sweetheart,
She's my yankee doodle joy.
Yankee doodle went to london,
Just to ride the ponies,
I am that yankee doodle boy
