Lyrics:

It’s the first 10 amendments
raised by Anti-Federalists
government power limits
written by James Madison
approved 1791
added to The Constitution
once all the states ratified

The United States Bill of Rights
The United States Bill of Rights

first one, yea it’s about freedom
free speech, press, assembly and religion
onto the second one, guns you can carry
bear arms, regulated militia for security

and we’re onto the third, prohibiting soldiers
to live in your home without consent from the owner
the fourth amendment says, no unreasonable searches
police must get permission before they can arrest
and we’re on to the fifth, it covers a few topics
no need to testify against yourself, take the fifth
you can’t be tried for the same, crime twice, double jeopardy
eminent domain means Gov’ must pay fair prices for your property

it’s the first 10 amendments
raised by Anti-Federalists
government power limits
written by James Madison
approved 1791
added to The Constitution
once all the states ratified

The United States Bill of Rights
The United States Bill of Rights

sixth one, it’s when you’re accused of
a crime, you get lawyers from, the state and a fair public trial
onto seven, this one guarantees a
jury trial in federal courts for civil cases, thank ya

(Ah, Ah) and eight’s about punishments and they
must be fair, and fines reasonable
onto nine, other rights may not be explicitly mentioned
power limit amendments can’t be a power extension
the tenth amendment does say
power not given to the feds is given to the states
