Lyrics:1. HIS NAME IS JOHNNY PECKANEN
HE WAS HATCHED UP IN AHMEEK
WORKED THE WHITE PINE COPPER
MINE
SEVEN DAYS A WEEK
WHEN COPPER TOOK A NOSE DIVE
HE GOT HIS WALKING PAPERS

HAD TO SELL THE FAMILY FARM
JUST TO TRY TO MAKE ‘ER
CHORUS:
HE'S
YOOPANESE, YOOPANESE,
A VERY SPECIAL BREED
DAGO, FIN, COUSIN JACK,
GERMAN,
FRENCH AND SWEDE
HE GREW UP WITH THE MAKI BOYS
IN BUMBLE TOWN LOCATION
HE DUG THE
ORE AND CUT THE TREES
THAT BUILT THIS MIGHTY NATION

2. HE MOVED DOWN TO
MILWAUKEE,
NO CALL BACKS FROM THE MINE
THEY WERE HIRING AT THIS FACTORY
SO HE
WENT AND STOOD IN LINE
THE BOSS SAID, “HAY, WE'RE YOU FROM?”
JOHNNY SAID,
“YOOPERLAND USA"
THE BOSS SAID, “GO GET YOUR BUCKET YOOPER!"
"YOU START TO WORK
TODAY!”
"I'VE ALWAYS HIRED YOOPERS,"
"WE GET ALONG SO WELL"
"THEY'RE HONEST AND
DEPENDABLE,"
"AND ALWAYS WORK LIKE HELL"
"THEY KNOW THE VALUE OF A DIME,"
"AND
DON'T EXPECT NOTHING FREE"
"YOU KNOW ANY OTHER YOOPERS,"
"TELL ‘EM THEY CAN WORK FOR
ME!"

CHORUS:
WE'RE YOOPANESE, YOOPANESE,
A VERY SPECIAL BREED
DAGO,
FIN, COUSIN JACK,
GERMAN, FRENCH AND SWEDE
WE GREW UP WITH THE MAKI BOYS
IN
BUMBLE TOWN LOCATION
WE DUG THE ORE AND CUT THE TREES
THAT BUILT THIS MIGHTY NATION


3. HE STARTED UP A FAMILY,
MOVED BACK TO YOOPERLAND
GOT A JOB AT HOUGHTON
TECH
SWEEPING UP THE SAND
HE SAID, “LIVING IN THE OLE’ UP"
"IS THE LIFE FOR
ME”

CHORUS:
I'M YOOPANESE, YOOPANESE,
DON'T PUT A STAMP ON ME

IRISH, JEWISH, INDIAN,
WE'RE ALL THE SAME YOU SEE
WE HAVE TWELFTH GRADE
EDUCATION'S
AND BACHELORS DEGREES
RICH AND POOR, MIDDLE CLASS,
WE'RE ALL
YOOPANESE
