    shh - don't let your kids see this

    Bill of Rights | Song that summarizes each amendment of the Bill of Rights

    What's the Bill of Rights and what does it say?
    Why memorize the Bill of Rights today?
    The first 10 Amendments are just good to know
    Freedoms that we have is exactly what they show

    You can get together with whoever you want to
    And talk about whatever you'd like
    You can say it in a church or you can say it outside
    Or maybe just think about it for life
    The First Amendment says that you can think or say whatever's on your mind

    There used to be a time before we had the police
    And if you had a problem, you had to make your own peace
    Owning a gun is what brought independence
    That's why we've always fought so hard to defend this
    The Second Amendment guarantees your right to own a gun, but not your right to pick a fight

    An army is a necessary thing we are told
    But where soldiers stay should never be in our homes
    An intolerable act was how it was first described
    The Third Amendment sums it up in just a few lines:
    No one can make you bring war into your home

    The things that you own and the places you keep them
    Are nobody's business and no one can seize them
    Not even a policemen can stop for no reason
    Unless they're sure you've been out hurting innocent people
    The Fourth Amendment says that no one has to put up with illegal search or seizure

    If you're ever accused of committing a crime
    And prove that you're innocent the very first time
    You can't be brought back for trial after trial
    after trial after trial after trial
    The Fifth Amendment says you can't be tried for the same crime twice

    If you ever get accused, you have the right to defend
    And you shouldn't have to wait until eternity's end
    To go to court, plead your case and put it to rest
    The Sixth Amendment guarantees your right to this:
    You have the right to a speedy trial and one that's fair

    A jury of your peers is who decides your fate
    If the laws of the land, you desecrate
    King George's Stamp Act is why this right was put in
    He'd put you in jail and for a trial you'd wait
    The Seventh Amendment says you have a right to a trial by jury

    Colonists remembered being punished too hard
    By the King and the army under his charge
    They stated that a punishment should truly fit the crime
    And cruelty won't be tolerated any of the time
    The Eighth Amendment calls for reasonable fines and humane punishment

    The basic rights of people are things that exist
    Even if the constitution makes no mention of it
    Every person has value at the end of the day
    That's really all the Ninth Amendment's trying to say

    And...

    The Tenth Amendment's the one that gives the states rights
    When the Federal government should stay out of the fight
    It's sometimes in question and up for debate
    But it balances power in these United States
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    We should forward this to our government. It seems they forgot it was a bill of rights since now all we're assured to get is the bill.

    Politicians don't care about the Bill Of Rights. It specifically limits their powers against the American populace.

    It gives the mods something to think about, trash the thread completely or send it to recycle.

    Funky delivery, but suppose it's not a bad thing if it can get the idea through to kids.

    I personally don't consider the Bill of Rights as political matters, since they define our rights and are supposed to protect us from power-hungry, over-reaching politicians whatever their ideological leanings may be. But whether it's appropriate to be discussed on MTBR is for admins/mods to decide.
