Saturday Morning's Greatest Hits: The Preamble (America Rock, 1976)

In 1976, Schoolhouse Rock added a new component, America Rock, to mark the bicentennial, which had come & gone in July.

Lynn Ahrens wrote and sings "The Preamble", a short piece about the first part of the Constitution. Something a certain President needs to be reminded of. Every day.

If you looked real close, you'd see Lynn's name, along with producers George Newall and Tom Yohe, on the ballot. Cute inside joke, no? Yes, "The Preamble" comes off as a folk song, but it still resonates today. If only someone could "rick-roll" the White House........
