‚ėÖ Yankee Doodle History:

Yankee¬†Doodle¬†is¬†a¬†well known¬†American¬†rhyme,¬†dating¬†back¬†to¬†before¬†the¬†Seven¬†Years’¬†War¬†and¬†even¬†the¬†American¬†Revolution.¬†
The lyrics and tune are marked in the Roud Folk Song Index under the number 4501. 

The Macaroni was a wig type and an extreme fashion in the late18th century, eventually becoming slang for being a fop. Dandies were men focused on their physical appearance, refining their language and having leisure hobbies, with a self-made one meaning a middle-class man impersonating the aristocratic lifestyle of the time.

‚ėÖ¬†Yankee Doodle Lyrics:

Yankee Doodle went to town
Riding on a pony
He stuck a feather in his hat,
And called it macaroni.

Yankee Doodle keep it up,
Yankee Doodle dandy,
Mind the music and the step,
And have some tasty candy.

Yankee Doodle went to town
Riding on a pony
He stuck a feather in his hat,
And called it macaroni.

Yankee Doodle keep it up,
Yankee Doodle dandy,
Mind the music and the step,
And have some tasty candy.

Yankee Doodle went to town
Riding on a pony
He stuck a feather in his hat,
And called it macaroni.

Yankee Doodle keep it up,
Yankee Doodle dandy,
Mind the music and the step,
And have some tasty candy.
