Yankee Doodle Dandy
Lyrics
No more time to give away
No place to go, so I think I'll stay
No more money for me to spend
I used every dollar to the very end

Uncle Sam remember me?
Hope n' believin' n' the American dream
Workin' hard and bein' good
Like a good nephew always should

Here's to you
The Red, White and Blue
Waving in the starry sky

I don't forget
Or ever regret
Loving Yankee Doodle Dandy

My country right or wrong
Some say that's what makes you strong
Others say take off the mask
Be more than those in power lack

I want to believe in you
And what your virtues can really do
I want to know that you'll be alright
And be the light that end's the night

Here's to you
The Red, White and Blue
Waving in the starry sky

I don't forget
Or ever regret
Loving Yankee Doodle Dandy

I feel different, what can I say?
Thinking back to yesterday
I wipe by tears and go on
Hopin' that we don't go wrong

Mistakes indeed have been made
Promises broken and delayed
But I can not help to think a day
When everyone will think and say:

Here's to you
The Red, White and Blue
Waving in the starry sky

I don't forget
Or ever regret
Loving Yankee Doodle Dandy

Here's to you
The Red, White and Blue
Waving in the starry sky

I don't forget
Or ever regret
Loving Yankee Doodle Dandy
