8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy,
A Yankee Doodle, do or die.
A real live nephew of my Uncle Sam's,
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!
