Yankee Doodle Blues (1922)

Vocal Range



Say, here’s a word I want to say!
Say, have you ever been away?
Have you ever missed the good old U. S. A.?
When you get that itching in your shoes,
Go to any other land you choose,
See how quick you get those “Yankee Doodle Blues!”
You’re singing
There’s no land so grand as my land,
From California to Manhattan isle;
North and South my sunny sky land,
I love ev’ry mile!
When I hear “Yankee Doodle,”
That melody keeps on ringing in my ear;
“Yankee Doodle—"
That melody makes me stand right up and cheer,
“I’m coming!”
U. S. A., I’ll say I love you,
Make me lose those “Yankee Doodle Blues!”
