    "Yankee Doodle" is a well-known Anglo-American song, the origin of which dates back to the Seven Years' War. It is often sung patriotically in the United States today and is the state anthem of Connecticut.[1] It has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 4501.


    Yankee Doodle History and lyrics


    Yankee Doodle went to town
    Riding on a pony;
    He stuck a feather in his hat,
    And called it macaroni[2]

    Traditions place its origin in a pre-[2]


    Yankee Doodle Etymology

    As a term Doodle first appeared in the early seventeenth century,[4] and is thought to derive from the Low German dudel or dödel, meaning "fool" or "simpleton". The Macaroni wig was an extreme fashion in the 1770s and became contemporary slang for foppishness.[5] The Macaronis were young English men who adopted feminine mannerisms and highly extravagant attire, and were deemed effeminate. They were members of the Macaroni Club in London at the height of the fashion for dandyism, so called because they wore striped silks upon their return from the Grand Tour - and a feather in their hats. They also wore two fob watches: "one to tell what time it was and the other to tell what time it was not" ran their joking explanation. Their love of horse racing at Cheltenham and Bibury (in the UK) can still be recognised today in the names of the 18th Century Macaroni Farm and Macaroni Woods near Eastleach, Gloucestershire, UK. The verse implies Yankees were so unsophisticated, they thought simply sticking a feather in a cap would make them the height of fashion.[6] Peter McNeil, professor of fashion studies, claims the British were insinuating the colonists were womanish and not very masculine.[7]


    Yankee Doodle Early versions

    The earliest known version of the lyrics comes from 1755 or 1758, as the date of origin is disputed:[8]

    Brother Ephraim sold his Cow
    And bought him a Commission;
    And then he went to Canada
    To fight for the Nation;
    But when Ephraim he came home
    He proved an arrant Coward,
    He wouldn't fight the Frenchmen there
    For fear of being devoured.

    (Note that the sheet music which accompanies these lyrics reads, "The Words to be Sung through the Nose, & in the West Country drawl & dialect.")

    The Ephraim referenced here was Ephraim Williams, a popularly known Colonel in the Massachusetts militia who was killed in the Battle of Lake George. He left his land and property to the founding of a school in Western Massachusetts, now known as Williams College.

    The tune also appeared in 1762, in one of America's first comic operas, The Disappointment, with bawdy lyrics about the search for Blackbeard's buried treasure by a team from Philadelphia.[9]

    It has been reported[tarred and feathered for attempting to buy a musket in Boston in March 1775, although he later fought at Concord:

    Yankee Doodle came to town,
    For to buy a firelock,
    We will tar and feather him,
    And so we will John Hancock.

    For this reason, the town of Billerica claims to be the "home" of Yankee Doodle,[10][11] and claims that at this point the Americans embraced the song and made it their own, turning it back on those who had used it to mock them. A bill was introduced to the House of Representatives on July 25, 1999 (referenced as H. CON. RES. 143) recognizing Billerica, Massachusetts as "America's Yankee Doodle Town." After the Battle of Lexington and Concord, a Boston newspaper reported: "Upon their return to Boston [pursued by the Minutemen], one [Briton] asked his brother officer how he liked the tune now, — 'Dang them,' returned he, 'they made us dance it till we were tired' — since which Yankee Doodle sounds less sweet to their ears."

    The British responded with another set of lyrics following the Battle of Bunker Hill:

    The seventeen of June, at Break of Day,
    The Rebels they supriz'd us,
    With their strong Works, which they'd thrown up,
    To burn the Town and drive us.

    There is another version attributed to Edward Bangs, a student at Harvard College, who in 1775 or 1776 wrote a ballad with fifteen verses circulated in Boston and surrounding towns.[12] Yankee Doodle was also played at the British surrender at Saratoga in 1777.[13]

    On February 6, 1788, Massachusetts ratified the Constitution by a vote of 186 to 168. To the ringing of bells and the booming of cannons, the delegates trooped out of Brattle Street Church.[citation needed] Before many days had passed, the citizens sang their convention song to the tune of "Yankee Doodle." Here are the lyrics to their song...

    The vention did in Boston meet,
    The State House could not hold 'em
    So then they went to Fed'ral Street,
    And there the truth was told 'em...
    And ev'ry morning went to prayer,
    And then began disputing,
    Till oppositions silenced were,
    By arguments refuting.
    Now politicians of all kinds,
    Who are not yet decided,
    May see how Yankees speak their minds,
    And yet are not divided.
    So here I end my Fed'ral song,
    Composed of sixteen verses;
    May agriculture flourish long
    And commerce fill our purses!

    A full version of the song, as it is known today, goes:[14]

    Yankee Doodle went to town
    A-riding on a pony,
    Stuck a feather in his cap
    And called it macaroni'.
    Chorus:
    Yankee Doodle keep it up,
    Yankee Doodle dandy,
    Mind the music and the step,
    And with the girls be handy.
    Fath'r and I went down to camp,
    Along with Captain Gooding,
    And there we saw the men and boys
    As thick as hasty pudding.
    Chorus
    And there we saw a thousand men
    As rich as Squire David,
    And what they wasted every day,
    I wish it could be saved.
    Chorus
    The 'lasses they eat it every day,
    Would keep a house a winter;
    They have so much, that I'll be bound,
    They eat it when they've mind ter.
    Chorus
    And there I see a swamping gun
    Large as a log of maple,
    Upon a deuced little cart,
    A load for father's cattle.
    Chorus
    And every time they shoot it off,
    It takes a horn of powder,
    and makes a noise like father's gun,
    Only a nation louder.
    Chorus
    I went as nigh to one myself
    As 'Siah's inderpinning;
    And father went as nigh again,
    I thought the deuce was in him.
    Chorus
    Cousin Simon grew so bold,
    I thought he would have cocked it;
    It scared me so I shrinked it off
    And hung by father's pocket.
    Chorus
    And Cap'n Davis had a gun,
    He kind of clapt his hand on't
    And stuck a crooked stabbing iron
    Upon the little end on't
    Chorus
    And there I see a pumpkin shell
    As big as mother's bason,
    And every time they touched it off
    They scampered like the nation.
    Chorus
    I see a little barrel too,
    The heads were made of leather;
    They knocked on it with little clubs
    And called the folks together.
    Chorus
    And there was Cap'n Washington,
    And gentle folks about him;
    They say he's grown so 'tarnal proud
    He will not ride without em'.
    Chorus
    He got him on his meeting clothes,
    Upon a slapping stallion;
    He sat the world along in rows,
    In hundreds and in millions.
    Chorus
    The flaming ribbons in his hat,
    They looked so tearing fine, ah,
    I wanted dreadfully to get
    To give to my Jemima.
    Chorus
    I see another snarl of men
    A digging graves they told me,
    So 'tarnal long, so 'tarnal deep,
    They 'tended they should hold me.
    Chorus
    It scared me so, I hooked it off,
    Nor stopped, as I remember,
    Nor turned about till I got home,
    Locked up in mother's chamber.
    Chorus

    Many other variations and parodies have since arisen, including one taught to schoolchildren today:[15]

    A-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 with the girls be handy!
    Father and I went down to camp
    Along with Captain Gooding
    And there we saw the men and boys
    As thick as hasty pudding.
    Chorus
    And there was Captain Washington
    And gentle folks about him
    They say he's grown so tarnal proud
    He will not ride without them.
    Chorus

    Giving orders to his men-
    I guess there were a million.
