Yankee Doodle Dandy

- She all right?
- She's fine.

What is it?
Well, all signs point to its being a boy.
He just got here,
and he's sleeping already.

All babies sleep 20 hours a day.
That's why most
never amount to anything.

- What'll we call him?
- I don't know.

- What do you say?
- Seeing that he arrived on the 4th of July...

...what about George Washington Cohan?
Has a nice patriotic ring to it.
What do you think?

The George is fine, but the Washington
may be too long for a billboard.

How about a nice, short Irish name?
Dennis or Michael.

George Michael Cohan.
Yes, I like that name.
Gosh, I forgot.
Hey! It's a boy!
Oh, Jerry.
Heavenly day, Nellie,
he's crying with a brogue.

The first thing I ever had in my fist
was the American flag.

I hitched my wagon to 38 stars
and 13 stripes.

I was 6 or 7 before I realized they weren't
celebrating my birthday on the 4th of July.

Then my folks had a real break when
my little sister, Josie, made her entrance.
