Independence Day: Saturday Soundtrack

I learned this song in pre-school and have been singing ever since. Well not the whole thing, just the part that goes:

I'm a Yankee Doodle dandy
Yankee Doodle do or die
A real live nephew of my Uncle Sam
Born on the 4th of July
I have a Yankee Doodle sweetheart
She's a Yankee Doodle joy
Yankee Doodle came to town just to ride a pony
I am that Yankee Doodle boy

Congressional Gold Medal recipient George M. Cohan wrote the song in 1904, Jimmy Cagny sang it in the movie Yankee Doodle Dandy in 1943.
