Hey, do you know about the U.S.A.?
Do you know about the government?
Can you tell me about the Constitution?
Hey, learn about the U.S.A.

In 1787 I'm told,
our founding fathers did agree,
to write a list of principles
for keeping people free
The U.S.A. was just starting out,
a bold, brand new country,
and so our people spelled it out,
the things that we should be.

And they put those principles down on paper,
and called it the Constitution,
and it's been helping us run our country
ever since then.
The first part of the Constitution is called
the Preamble, and tells what those founding
fathers set out to do.

We the people, in order to form
a more perfect union,
establish justice,
ensure domestic tranquility,
provide for the common defense,
promote the general welfare and
secure the blessings of liberty
to ourselves and our posterity
do ordain and establish this Constitution,
for the United States of America.

In 1787 I'm told
Our founding fathers all sat down
And wrote a list of principles
that's know the world around.
The U.S.A. was just starting out,
a bold, brand new country,
And so our people spelled it out,
they wanted a land of liberty.

And the Preamble goes like this:
(repeat preamble).
