I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy

I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy

I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy
play music
mute music

By George M. Cohan

I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy
A Yankee Doodle, do or die
A real live nephew of my Uncle Sam
Born on the Fourth of July.

I've got a Yankee Doodle sweetheart
She's my Yankee Doodle joy
Yankee Doodle came to London
Just to ride the ponies
I am the Yankee Doodle Boy.

What came before online music, before CDs, even before LP records? Listen to this song when it was first recorded in 1904. It will sound a lot different than the music in your earbuds! Then read about how Thomas Edison invented the phonograph. Part of science is to keep inventing new things and making them better.
