Patter from The Yankee Doodle Blues -- "They say that Europe’s wonderful with all its ancient junk,
It’s not as good as KoKomo and KoKomo’s a bunk,
Well how about ol’ London, was it covered by a fog?,
Yes, and I had to move from Paris cause I couldn’t eat a frog.
Did you visit ol’ Cologne while making all the rounds?
Ol’ Cologne don’t smell as sweet and pretty as it sounds.
A Russian Bolshivic he tried to get my scalp.
I heard you wore your welcome out by sliding down and out. . . . . .
That’s why……. Miss Liberty I’ll say you’re a bear,
And when the custom officer says to you, what do you declare,
I’ll declare that. . . . .
There’s no land so grand for a day 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 say…. I love you,
Make me lose those “Yankee Doodle Blues!”
