Classic Clip Monday: We the People

In honor of Presidents Day, here's a little something from 1976 that's very likely still lodged in your head: Schoolhouse Rock's Preamble to the Constitution.

Hearing this song eight thousand times as a kid helped me score big on a Government test in high school. I don't think I got an A+, though, since the Schoolhouse Rock lyrics aren't exactly the same as the actual preamble (Rock dropped the "of the United States" from the first line). I'm also pretty sure I spelled "tranquility" "tranquili-tee-eee-eee-eee."

Following up on FB comment--I think I did remember to add the missing lyric. Not sure why, but I think we had discussed amongst ourselves the fact that the song wasn't exactly right.
