Yankee Doodle Never Went to Town Lyrics

 

Yankee Doodle Never Went To Town - Teddy Wilson And His Orchestra

Yankee Doodle never went to town

 

I just discovered the story was phony

 

Let me give you all the real low down

 

He didn't even own a pony

 

He was really very short and fat

 

While in the story so skinny and moany

 

And so hungry that he ate his hat

 

And called the feather Macaroni

 

Underneath the chestnut tree

 

He and the blacksmith would sip that tea

 

Then he'd bring out

His uniform all low down

That's how he went to town

 

Yankee Doodle tried to leave one day

 

Took his belongings

And mounted his saddle

 

But he never got it on his way

'Cause he didn't have a pony

And the fairy tale is phony

 

How could Yankee Doodle go to town
