Yankee Doodle sings a song
A big time agent listens

To three Broadway auditions

Mrs. Doodle on a Camel
Mrs. Doodle went to town
Riding on a camel
She broke a nail and fixed it
With a dab of nail enamel

Yankee Doodle Gets a Jerky Suprise
Yankee Doodle went to town,
riding on a turkey.
Had to make some reigns for it,
‘cause it was fast and jerky.

Mrs.Doodle went to town,
in her new red bikini,
I thought it fit her perfectly,
but it was kind of teeny!
