It starts (with a pronounced Yiddish accent):

I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy
I've got a Yankee Doodle Son (a tramp! a bum!)
He works downtown on Delancy Street
Just like Abe Washington
Last night, he brought me home a paycheck
It was a half a dollar short....

Here an aging memory faileth. Any urban types recall the rest?

Not the same parody that I heard. It just had one line:
Yank my doodle, it's a dandy. So probably not the same song.

From the balmy days of the sixties

Yankee Doodle
(Words by Ewan MacColl )

Yankee Doodle came to town,
H-Bombs in his pocket,
Says, "Chum, if you don't toe the line,
I'll blast you with a rocket!"

Chorus
Yankee Doodle, Uncle Sam,
Batman, also Superman,
Known from here to Viet Nam
As Yankee Doodle Dandy.


Yankee Doodle went to Mars
Landed on a Sunday,
Found some people living there
And killed 'em off by Monday. (Chorus)

Yankee Doodle went to work,
As hard as he was able.
Bombing schools and hospitals
And infants in the cradle. (Chorus)

Yankee Doodle's got a plan
It's called 'Defoliation',
Tried it out in Viet Nam
To civilize the nation. (Chorus)

Yankee Doodle, he's the boy,
For rape, assault and pillage ?
Never lets a day go by
Without he burns a village. (Chorus)

Yankee Doodle never crosses
Over any border,
Except to kill more people
In the name of law and order. (Chorus)

Yankee Doodle, he is brave,
A bold and gallant fighter!
He's great at burning people's houses
With his petrol lighter. (Chorus)

Yankee Doodle feels that he
Is not appreciated,
He's generous with his napalm
And yet, somehow, he's hated. (Chorus)

Yankee Doodle's got the know-how,
Death is what he teaches:
And as he kills, dear Mr. Wilson
Murmurs little speeches. (Chorus)

Finish: A choleria zul im Khapen
Trying to Cheat his Alten Taten
He's got a shike on the side
