"Yankee Doodle" is a popular American song, which is usually sung patriotically in the United States of America. It is also the state anthem of Connecticut. The early versions of the song were known before Seven Yearsâ€™ War and the American Revolution (a colonial revolt - 1765 and 1783).
The tune of the song is believed to be much older than the lyrics and was known in many parts of western Europe. Commentators believe that the earliest version of the rhyme came from Middle Dutch harvest song, which was sung in the same tune.
This popular American song marks its origin in a pre-revolutionary war song, which was originally sung by the British military officers. In the United States, the rhyme was popular among the masses as a song of defiance.
Yankee Doodle came to town,
A-riding on a pony,
He stuck a feather in his hat
And called it macaroni.
Yankee Doodle keep it up,
Yankee Doodle Dandy;
Mind the music and the steps
And with the girls be handy.
