But if this Yankee should stay there a while,
Upon his face you're bound to see a smile.
When Yankee Doodle learns to Parlez vous Francais,
Parlez vous Francais, in the proper way,
He will call each girlie "Ma Cherie,"
To evry Miss that wants a kiss he'll say "Wee Wee,
On Ze Be, On Ze Bou, On Ze Boule, Boulevard,
With a girl, with a curl you can see him promenade,
When Yankee Doodle learns to Parlez vous Francais, "Oo La La,
Sweet Papa" he will teach them all to say.
Soon Tankee Doodle left old Paris town,
Upon his face there was a coat of brown,
For every man of Uncle Sam was fighting in a trench,
Between each shell, they learned quite well to speak a little French.
When Yankee Doodle gets back to Paree,
He'll break a million hearts take it from me.
