"We The Future" Contest Best Middle School Song, Composed by Daniela Staton

A new country needs rules they say

To govern and protect the people

So our founders back in 1787

Created the rules that affect us today

 

The Constitution explains how our government works

Each part with a specific role

Three branches to check and balance each other, with

Legislative, Judicial, Executive

 

Our Constitution is the foundation

That binds us and allows us to be free

We have many different rights

To help us live peacefully.

 

So important is how our Constitution changes

Amendments are the primary way

That reflect how our nation rearranges

So that every person has a say

 

The first ten of these amendments are the Bill of Rights

These allow us to freely speak,

Choose our own religion

And give us the basic foundation so not be weak

,

They give us the right to bear arms to protect ourselves,

The right to peacefully assemble to let our voices be heard

The right against unreasonable searches or seizures

The right to a speedy and public trial

 

Our Constitution is the foundation

That binds us and allows us to be free

We have many different rights

To help us live peacefully.
