    Yankee doodle went to town
    On a little pony
    Put a feather in his hat
    And called it Macaroni

    I think it just means the regular kind of dandy :)

    ohh, he went to London just to ride a pony, not riding on one, I was wondering if he rode it across the Atlantic

    I wouldn't read too much into the lyrics if I were you. They never made much sense to me until I learned what the song was about.
    Fun post Yosyp.
    Are you flying over for my picnic today? As I said, you and your wife are most welcome as long as you leave your kindergarten teacher home. :^D

    as much as I would love to be there I couldn't get a visa.. Thanks for the invite though. Not sure where my kindergarten teacher is these days, maybe she's already over there. :)

    There was a song the British made up to mock the colonials called Yankee Doodle. I think it had a lot of verses but I only know this one:

    Yankee Doodle went to town ariding on a pony,
    Stuck a feather in his cap,
    and called it macaroni.
    Yankee Doodle keep it up,
    Yankee Doodle dandy,
    Mind the music, keep in step,
    And with the girls be handy.

    Unfortunately for the British, the Americans adopted it as a bragging song and sung it out with pride and today to be a Yankee Doodle Dandy means to be the highest of patriotic American.

    Well, this is how I was taught to sing it. Perhaps it has been further Amercanized over the years.

    It's a bizarre sexual procedure involving feathers, noodles and a hat. Might be better if you don't ask!
