This song was a popular anthem of the Democratic Party in 1864. It was sung at political rallies across the country. Really.

The New National Anthem
"Nigger Doodle Dandy"

Yankee Doodle is no more,
Sunk his name and station;
Nigger Doodle takes his place,
And favors amalgamation.

CHORUS: Nigger Doodle's all the go,
Ebony shins and bandy,
"Loyal" people all must bow
To Nigger Doodle Dandy.

The white breed is under par
It lacks the rich a-romy,
Give us something black as tar,
Give us "Old Dahomey."

chorus

Blubber lips are killing sweet,
And kinky heads are splendid;
And oh, it makes such bully feet
To have the heels extended.

chorus

James Loewen, in his critical examination of American History textbooks and teaching Lies My Teacher Told Me, notes that the college students and high-school history teachers he has shared these lyrics with are shocked, and that "Nothing in their high school history textbooks hinted that national politics was ever like this".
