YANKEE DOODLE is the first song printed (of at least 127 songs) in “Little House in the Big Woods,” the first in the the Little House series of books by Laura Ingalls Wilder.  Many are folk songs and hymns of the time and in the books, most of the songs are played by Pa on his fiddle.  Laura often gives just a few of the lyrics as a memory from a scene in the book.

ISBN 978-0-06+440001-5

***********************

YANKEE DOODLE appears on p. 36-38 of my paperback copy of the book, with these lyrics:

YANKEE DOODLE
Traditional Words and Tune

Yankee Doodle went to town,
He wore his striped trousies,
He swore he couldn’t see the town,
There was so many houses.

And there he saw some great big guns,
Big as a log of maple,
And every time they turned ‘em round,
It took two yoke of cattle.

And every time they fired ‘em off,
It took a horn of power,
It made a noise like father’s gun,
Only a nation louder.

And I’ll sing Yankee Doodle-de-do,
And I’ll sing Yankee Doodle,
And I’ll sing Yankee Doodle-de-do,
And I’ll sing Yankee Doodle!

***********************

*
If you can’t remember the tune, I’m a big fan of this instrumental:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0010GNIZC/ref=dm_ty_trk?ie=UTF8&qid=1270407685&sr=1-2

*
For my money, there’s nothing more fun than a fife and drum playing YANKEE DOODLE

***********************

Yankee Doodle, seemingly a simple and ubiquitous song, is actually sung to an ancient tune, to which hundreds of songs and verses have been written, and which has an amazingly long, rich, and historically significant history.

The Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme for “Lucy Locket” uses the same tune at Yankee Doodle:

Lucy Locket lost her pocket,
Kitty Fisher found it;
Not a penny was there in it,
Only ribbon round it.

***********************

A friend told me once that almost all Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes can be sung to the tune of “Yankee Doodle.”  So if you want to sing a rhyme and don’t know the tune, give this trick a try.

Addendum 7/4/2014

A little Patriotic Gift to USA from Sing Books with Emily on Independence Day 2014

My children both went to Tuckahoe Elementary School in the 4th grade and participated in the wonderful event (the day to which most of the 4th grade at Tuckahoe leads up to) known as COLONIAL DAY.  A section of the celebration is devoted to songs of the period.  They learn a verse to YANKEE DOODLE that is not usually sung.

I’ve adapted it slightly and made a poster:

In Seventeen-hundred Seventy-six
On the Fourth Day of July
Our Independence we declared
In the fight for liberty

Yankee Doodle keep it up
Yankee Doodle Dandy
Mind the music and the step
And let us all be handy

A note form Emily on a lyric in the classic patriotic ditty (and why Emily changed it),

I love the song YANKEE DOODLE and most of what it stands for, but that lyric “let the girls be handy,” has always bothered me.  When I sing the song with children in classrooms and libraries, I let the children come up with other ideas for who should also be handy (since I believe EVERYONE should be handy).  I suggest:  Dads, Moms, Teachers, Sisters, Brothers, Boys, etc.

In this case, I decided to change the lyric to “LET US ALL BE HANDY.”  That pretty well covers it and I like it much better.

***********************
Addendum 7/8/2014

I made a poster with the Declaration of Independence Trumbull Portraitto celebrate Independence Day 2014, using the 1776 verse text my daughter learned for her 4th grade Colonial Day.

Since the text is not so easy to read on the first poster, I decided to make a second one so kids can read the text and sing-along:

Text Poster for Yankee Doodle 1776 Verse
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2014/07/08/text-poster-for-yankee-doodle-1776-verse/

I’ve lost count of how many Sing Books performances I’ve been privileged to share over the last few years, but I’ve not stood up in front of a microphone to sing for grown-ups since about a year ago, which I get to do in a couple of days, something I’m very much looking forward to doing. That said, brushing up on a few performance reminders is always a good thing to do.

And, since I consider each Sing Books performance to be its own kind of cabaret performance, these reminders are extra helpful.

A few nuggets of advice from Master Teachers that I’ve collected over the years to remind me what Cabaret Singing IS…what it is all about:

  • Don’t forget that, regardless of your interpretation, the words and music must fit comfortably together. “Listen to your heart and just sing.” (Bob Harrington)
  • “Cabaret is about specificity.” (Wendy Lane Bailey)
  • “There is no fourth wall in cabaret. The fourth wall is the one you walk through to get into the room.” (Erv Raible)
  • “The performer is a guide through the story of the song.” Wendy Lane Bailey
  • Remember what George Fulginiti-Shakar said about rehearsing with taped music (or any accompaniment). Your job is NOT to follow the piano or accompaniment. Your job is to experience the song and express that experience to the audience.
  • “The central point remains: In cabaret, you’re doing much more than singing. You’re communicating through song.” (Bob Harrington)
  • Do all the homework. Work out for yourself what each word of the song means to you. Then TRUST and let it go. The influence of your work will be there. Sing from your heart.
  • Once you’ve done all the homework and rehearsed, approach each performance as an improv, an opportunity to tell the story new to a new group of people…as Tovah Feldshuh said “Write the performance not in stone, but in water.”
  • A cabaret song is “…expressing a burning thought that the singer needs personally to covey…” (Michael Miyazaki 090608 on cabaretdc.wordpress.com)
  • There should be no difference between the person who is standing backstage from the person who steps up the the mic (Lina Koutrakos)
  • TELL THE TRUTH (Lina Koutrakos)
  • Remember, though, “songs weren’t written to be spoken, and some things that work fine to music sound rather questionable as prose,” and “a lot of what makes a song work is coming from the singer, not the song.” [BH]
  • “There’s just as much that’s cerebral going on, and a lot of it occurs because constant repetition leads to the internalization of a song.” (BH)

INFO AND THINKING ABOUT SINGABLE PICTURE BOOKS
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/resources-for-inspiration-and-information/

I’ve had the occasion lately to write up a few profiles and bios explaining what Sing Books is and why I’m doing.  I’m posting a couple of them here so that I can see them in print and maybe provide a few perspectives on what I’m actually doing here!  To me, the best way to explain it, is to DO it!

With Sing Books what matters most is the DOING.  But sometimes one must use words of explanation to get folks to come along for the experience.

Here are a couple of my latest attempts:

*
A bio for “LOVE STORIES: IT TAKES ALL KINDS: A Valentine Cabaret at Maggie’s Cabaret” on Friday, February 1, 2013:

Emily Leatha Everson Gleichenhaus is thrilled to be at Maggie’s again singing with dear friends. Emily’s live-performance program and blog SING BOOKS WITH EMILY synthesizes Emily’s experience in musical theater, cabaret, recital, motherhood and teaching and her love for research, song, and picture books. Emily performs her SING BOOKS WITH EMILY program many times a week at local schools and libraries and daily explores and chronicles the wonderful world of Singable Picture Books in her blog: www.SingBooksWithEmily.wordrpess.com.

*
A bio for “SING BOOKS WITH EMILY at Reading a Family Affair (RAFA), Literacy Council of Northern Virginia” on Saturday, March 2, 2013.  This bio was written by one of the event organizers, but I liked it not written by me, using words to describe my program and experience that what I generally use:

The mission of Sing Books with Emily is to share the wonderful world of Singable Picture Books which combine the magical wonders of music, text, and illustration. Emily Leatha Everson Gleichenhaus has been nominated for a 2010 Washington Area Music Association (WAMA) ”Wammie” in the “Cabaret Artist” category. She premiered her show “Oh, What a Beautiful Day: Sing Books with Emily, the Cabaret” in June of 2011. In August of 2011, Emily returned to the Kennedy Center to perform in a Staged Reading of the new musical “Kris Kringle, the Musical” as part of the Page to Stage Festival.

I’m thrilled to share SING BOOKS WITH EMILY in many Elementary School classrooms each week, but I have a few public performances at local events and libraries coming up and would sure love so see you and the young ones in your life at these events:

      • SBWE at “Reading: a Family Affair (RAFA)” for Literacy Council of Northern Virginia, Saturday, March 2, 2013 from 1-1:45 pm at James Lee Community Center
      • SBWE at 3 Prince William County Neighborhood Libraries in Summer 2013: Wednesdays at 10:30 am: June 26, 2013 (Lake Ridge Neighborhood Library), July 10, 2013 (Dumfries Neighborhood Library) and July 24, 2013 (Dale City Neighborhood Library)

ABOUT SING BOOKS WITH EMILY

No doubt about it, Grandma’s Feather Bed, is an all-time Sing Books blockbuster favorite.  All kids of every age ask for it.  But, why not?  It’s funny, fun, has a great beat, a loving subject, and a challenging-tongue-twisting chorus that is fun to hear, figure out and master.

I’m quite delighted for the chance to share GRANDMA’S FEATHER BED at a cabaret/concert in a couple of days and in the course of a doing a little extra research on the song, just to find out if anything new has popped up about the song in cyberspace, I ran across this adorable animated video, illustrating GRANDMA’S FEATHER BED (with soundtrack sung by the great John Denver),

GRANDMA’S FEATHER BED, A SINGABLE PICTURE BOOK
http://singbookswithemily.wordpress.com/2012/05/06/grandmas-feather-bed-a-singable-picture-book/

One of the top-top Sing Books favorites is Rhode Island is Famous for You.  The kids love singing about what products come from what states, and especially the funny plays on words in the last verse, like when “Pencils come from Pennsylvania.”

Not long ago, a child in one of the classes spoke up and said, “I’m not so sure those are actually the top grossing products of those states.”  I thought that was precocious and hilarious of the child to say that, but the comment also made me wonder about what are the actual top products of the states.

Recently, and quite by accident, I ran across a few things to help me answer that question:
