So I think a modern translation is "Yankee Doodle drove to town in his lowered Kia Elantra, put on some fake Ray Ban aviators, and said to himself "Man, I am babe magnet."

Since I think the song was originally sung by Brits making fun of local yokel colonists.

I laugh light crazy when I talk to someone in person. Often inappropriately, because I'm so worried about being introverted and unlikeable that I default to pretending I hear/understand what people say and to smile agreeably.

So...I don't know about being relatable in any way, but yes, it's not reflective of enjoyment. Just the pain of social anxiety.
