Hey do you know about the USA? Do you know
about the government? Can you tell me about the constitution? Hey learn about the USA.
In 1787 i’m told our founding fathers did agree, to right a list of principles for keeping
people free. The USA was just starting out a whole 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 our country ever since then. The first
part of the constitution is called the preamble and tells what those fathers set out to do. We the people, in order to form a more
perfect union, established justice since your domestic tranquility. Provide for the common

  1. Informational videos that teach our basic rights is considered offensive today. They will not teach civics in school, or social studies. It is much easier to take someones rights when they don't know what their rights are.

  6. 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 keepin' people free.

    The U.S.A. was just startin' out.
    A whole 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, insure 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 known the world around.

    The U.S.A. was just starting out
    A whole brand-new country.
    And so our people spelled it out
    They wanted a land of liberty.

    And the Preamble goes like this:

    We the people,
    In order to form a more perfect union,
    Establish justice, insure 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.

    For the United States of America…

  7. πŸ’₯We need to share this!!!! Hello,they took Civics out of school in the 70's….πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™ŠπŸ”₯ Maybe a few will learn something new?

  8. I think you should disable this comments section because there are too many people here who are full of shit because of whatever political BS that they consumed.

  9. All through kindergarten and 5th grade my music teacher played this everyday πŸ€£β€οΈβ€οΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

  10. This material makes me proud to recall this was created during my childhood to educate children. Not Spongebob, maybe if things like this were shown to children today…..

  11. These old 1960 cartoons is when they used to brainwash us all to believe this b***** now in 2020 we live under communism in America

  12. I'm telling ya, it wasn't a perfect world back in these days but it was clearly a BETTER world to live in. The youth today wouldn't know the US Constitution preamble if it bit em in the ballsack.

  13. A vast majority of our politicians would benefit by watching this and remembering what the Constitution is, and what they all swore to honor and defend.

  14. I remember in 9th grade history class we had to recite the Preamble and I asked the teacher if I could sing it !

  15. I love this one πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ’™πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ’™β€οΈπŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ˜πŸ˜

  16. The preamble was extra credit on a history test and I got a great grade by singing this in my head as I wrote it out. Good times.🐱

  17. 0:27 for keeping the people free. Oh wait I thought slavery was abolished until (1865) and they wrote the preamble in 1787 this is so inaccurate
