Girl Version of “Yankee Doodle Dandy”

I love the song “Yankee Doodle Dandy” and it always kind of irritated me that it’s written specifically for a man to sing it, using lines like “real live nephew of my Uncle Sam” and “I’m a Yankee Doodle boy.”

So, I wrote my own girl version:

I’ve a Yankee Doodle sweetheart. He’s my Yankee Doodle pal. Yankee Doodle went to London just to ride the ponies. I am that Yankee Doodle gal.”


What do you think?

Props to George M. Cohan for writing a fantastic patriotic song.

Happy Independence Day!!

About Taminar

When I grow up, I want to make movies and write books. Now in my 50s, I wonder if I'll ever really accomplish the dreams of my youth. I have made two short films, one for a college film-making class, the other for an MTV-sponsored contest. I have written short plays that have been produced, and a few short stories and reviews that have been published. I also perform and direct for community theatre. My working life has included stints in local TV news, public relations, retail management and cashier, and for a couple of years, I made the rides go at Walt Disney World. I have two cats and a husband.
