     Let guns alone, they're dangerous things;
You'd better stick to peddling.
     Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo,
Yankee Doodle dandy;--
     “When next I go to Bully Run,
I'll throw away the brandy.”

Yankee Doodle, you had ought
     To be a little smarter;
Instead of catching woolly heads,
     I vow you've caught a tartar.
Yankee Doodle, doodle-doo,
     Yankee Doodle dandy;--
Go to hum — you've had enough
     Of rebels and of brandy.

--Richmond Whig.
