Doodle Dandy Doodle doodle doodle dandy Cornstalks, rum and homemade brandy Indian pudding and pumpkin pie And that will make the Yankees fly! And ev'ry Yankee shall have on his back A great big pumpkin in a sack, A little molasses and a piece of pork And away we'll march straight to New York! Note: Reportedly sung by American troops as they marched from Newburgh to NYC, as the British abandoned the city. There's a statue of Washington on horseback in Union Square Park; the story goes that this commemorates an all-day wait for the British flag to come down at the Battery; the delay was due to a disgruntled Redcoat nailing the flag to the top of the flagpole and then greasing the pole. RG Collected by Frank Warner from Roy Walsworth, 1941 Recorded by Warner RG
