Lyrics verse 1:
DID YOU EVER SEE TWO YANKEES
PART UPON A FOREIGN SHORE,
WHEN THE GOOD SHIP'S
JUST ABOUT TO START
FOR OLD NEW YORK
ONCE MORE?
WITH TEAR-DIMMED EYE,
THEY SAY GOOD BYE,
THEY'RE FRIENDS,
WITHOUT A DOUBT
WHEN THE MAN ON THE PIER
SHOUTS,
LET THEM CLEAR,
AS THE SHIP STRIKES OUT.

Chorus:
GIVE MY REGARDS TO BROADWAY,
REMEMBER ME TO HERALD SQUARE
TELL ALL THE GANG,
AT FORTY SECOND STREET
THAT I WILL SOON BE THERE.
WHISPER OF HOW I'M YEARNING
TO MINGLE
WITH THE OLD TIME THRONG
GIVE MY REGARDS TO OLD BROADWAY
AND SAY THAT I'LL BE THERE,
EVER LONG.

verse 2:
SAY HELLO
TO DEAR OLD CONEY ISLE,
IF THERE YOU CHANCE TO BE,
WHEN YOU'RE AT THE WALDORF,
HAVE A SMILE
AND CHARGE IT
UP TO ME.
MENTION MY NAME
EVERY PLACE YOU GO,
AS AROUND THE TOWN
YOU ROAM
WISH YOU'D CALL MY GAL,
NO REMEMBER,
OLD PAL,
WHEN YOU GET BACK HOME.

Chorus:
GIVE MY REGARDS TO BROADWAY,
REMEMBER ME TO HERALD SQUARE
TELL ALL THE GANG,
AT FORTY SECOND STREET
THAT I WILL SOON BE THERE.
WHISPER OF HOW I'M YEARNING
TO MINGLE
WITH THE OLD TIME THRONG
GIVE MY REGARDS TO OLD BROADWAY
AND SAY THAT I'LL BE THERE,
EVER LONG.

WHO IS THE MAN
WHO WILL SPEND
OR WILL EVEN LEND?
HARRIGAN, THAT'S ME!
WHO IS YOUR FRIEND,
WHEN YOU FIND
THAT YOU NEED A FRIEND?
HARRIGAN, THAT'S ME!
FOR I'M JUST AS PROUD

HELPS A MAN
EVERY TIME HE CAN?
HARRIGAN, THAT'S ME!

FOR A 'GADABOUT'?

THY LADIES AND BABIES

I'M FOND OF THEM, TOO,
IN RETURN, YOU SEE.
WHO IS THE GENT

Lyrics [verse 1]:
I'M THE KID THAT'S ALL 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 DIXIE STRAIN,
I LONG TO SEE
HE 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 A PHONEY?

[Chorus]:
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.

[verse 2]:
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
UPON 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 YANKEE, BY GUM!
OH, SAY, CAN YOU SEE
ANYTHING
ABOUT MY PEDIGREE
THAT'S PHONEY?

[Chorus]
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 THAT YANKEE DOODLE BOY.

Lyrics verse 1:
THERE'S A FEELING
COMES A STEALING,
AND IT SETS MY BRAIN
A REELING,
WHEN I'M LISTENING
TO THE MUSIC
OF A MILITARY BAND
ANY TUNE LIKE
YANKEE DOODLE
SIMPLY SETS ME
OFF MY NOODLE,
IT'S THAT PATRIOTIC
SOMETHING
THAT NO ONE
CAN UNDERSTAND.
WAY DOWN SOUTH
IN THE LAND OF COTTON,
MELODY UNTIRING
AIN'T THAT INSPIRING?
HURRAH! HURRAH!
WE'LL JOIN THE JUBILEE,
AND THAT'S GOING SOME,
FOR THE YANKEES, BY GUM!
RED, WHITE AND BLUE,
I AM FOR YOU
HONEST,
YOU'RE A GRAND OLD FLAG!

Chorus:
YOU'RE A GRAND OLD FLAG,
YOU'RE A HIGH FLYING FLAG
AND FOREVER,
IN PEACE,
MAY YOU WAVE
YOU'RE THE EMBLEM
OF THE LAND I LOVE,
THE HOME OF THE FREE
AND THE BRAVE.
EV'RY HEART BEATS TRUE,
UNDER RED, WHITE AND BLUE
WHERE THERE'S NEVER
A BOAST OR BRAG
BUT, SHOULD AULD ACQUAINTANCE
BE FORGOT,
KEEP YOUR EYE ON
THE GRAND OLD FLAG.

verse 2:
I'M A CRANKY
HANKY PANKY,
I'M A DEAD SQUARE,
HONEST YANKEE,
AND I'M MIGHTY PROUD
OF THAT OLD FLAG
THAT FLIES FOR UNCLE SAM
THOUGH I DON'T BELIEVE
IN RAVING,
EV'RY TIME
I SEE IT WAVING,
THERE'S A CHILL
RUNS UP MY BACK
THAT MAKES ME GLAD
I'M WHAT I AM.
HERE'S A LAND
WITH A MILLION SOLDIERS,
THAT'S IF
WE SHOULD NEED 'EM
WE'LL FIGHT FOR FREEDOM!
HURRAH! HURRAH!
FOR EV'RY YANKEE,
TAR AND OLD G. A. R.,
EV'RY STRIPE,
EV'RY STAR.
RED, WHITE AND BLUE,
HATS OFF TO YOU
HONEST,
YOU'RE A GRAND OLD FLAG!

YOU'RE A GRAND OLD FLAG,
YOU'RE A HIGH FLYING FLAG
AND FOREVER,
IN PEACE,
MAY YOU WAVE
YOU'RE THE EMBLEM
OF THE LAND I LOVE,
THE HOME OF THE FREE
AND THE BRAVE.
EV'RY HEART BEATS TRUE,
UNDER RED, WHITE AND BLUE
WHERE THERE'S NEVER
A BOAST OR BRAG
BUT, SHOULD AULD ACQUAINTANCE
BE FORGOT,
KEEP YOUR EYE ON
THE GRAND OLD FLAG.
