Patty,

The "Macaroni Club" was a group of rich and...err, uhh flamboyant Brittish ladsin the 1700's who had taken a custom to the frilly fashions of France.  They thought they were pretty special in their ruffles and their form fitting trousers.  They also sported huge wigs and a hat with a feather stuck in it...ehh, sound familiar?  These boys may well have fit in with the current couture fashions of France, but the Brits found them to be a bit funny and feminine.  So leave it to the New Englanders who slowly started to emulate this fashion.  We all are aware "Yankee" wasn't exactly a term of endearment, well "Doodle" wasn't all that nice either.  So basically, the song is poking fun of the colonists attempt at fashion. 

So eat your heart out Dennis Rodman.
