Camptown Races
De Camptown ladies sing dis song—Doodah, Doo-dah!
De Camptown Race-track five miles long—Oh, doodah-day!
I come down dah wid my hat cav'd in—Doodah, Doo-dah!

Doo-Dah-Day

We march along with a merry song,

Doodah, Doodah

We-re all going strong and we shan't be long.

Doodle, doodle, doo-dah-day

We're out to see that an end shall be

Doodah, Doodah,

Of poverty and tyranny,

Doodle, doodle doo-dah-day.

Going to work all night,

Going to work all day,

Till the profit system's all washed up,

Doodle, doodle doo-dah-day.
