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’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy. Yankee Doodle do or die. A true believer in my Uncle Sam, born on the fourth of July. 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!!
