YANKEE DOODLE DANDY!
Although many of us think of the Star Spangled Banner during fireworks shows on the Fourth of July, one of my favorites is "Yankee Doodle Dandy”, a song that became popular in America during the Revolutionary War. George M. Cohan is famous for his version of the song and the film celebrating the same, which starts with the lyrics “I’m the kid that’s all the candy, I’m a Yankee Doodle dandy!” – which is how this wonderful Fourth of July board came to be named!
“I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy,
A Yankee Doodle, do or die…
A real life nephew to my Uncle Sam,
Born on the Fourth of July!
I’ve got a Yankee Doodle sweetheart,
She’s my Yankee Doodle joy…
Yankee Doodle went to London,
Just to ride the ponies,
I am that Yankee Doodle boy!”
