Traditional Lyrics

G                     D 
Yankee Doodle went to town,

  G             D 
A-riding on a pony 

G               C 
Stuck a feather in his cap 

    D             G 
And called it macaroni.

Yankee Doodle keep it up,

Yankee Doodle dandy,

Mind the music and the step,

    G        D        G 
And with the girls be handy.
