Don’t even get me started on that. I swear they warped my little mind with that rhyme. It pops into my head at the most unusual times. “Conjunction Junction...what's your function?” Hell, I can’t get that phrase out of my mind and it’s been twenty plus years! The worst part, I haven’t a clue what the a conjunction is. [%|]

"The British are coming! The British are coming!" Now, the ride of Paul Revere Set the nation on its ear, And the shot at Lexington heard 'round the world, When the British fired in the early dawn The War of Independence had begun, The die was cast, the rebel flag unfurled. And on to Concord marched the foe [i][b]To seize the arsenal there you know,[/i][/b] Waking folks searching all around Till our militia stopped them in their tracks, At the old North Bridge we turned them back And chased those Redcoats back to Boston town. And the shot heard 'round the world Was the start of the Revolution. The Minute Men were ready, on the move. Take your powder, and take your gun. Report to General Washington. Hurry men, there's not an hour to lose! Now, at famous Bunker Hill, Even though we lost, it was quite a thrill, The rebel Colonel Prescott proved he was wise; Outnumbered and low on ammunition As the British stormed his position He said, "Hold your fire till you see the whites of their eyes!" Though the next few years were rough, General Washington's men proved they were tough, Those hungry, ragged boys would not be beat. One night they crossed the Delaware, Surprised the Hessians in their lair, And at Valley Forge they just bundled up their feet! And the shot heard 'round the world Was the start of the Revolution. The Minute Men were ready, on the move. Take your blanket, and take your son. Report to General Washington. We've got our rights and now it's time to prove. Well, they showed such determination That they won the admiration Of countries across the sea like France and Spain, Who loaned the colonies ships and guns And put the British on the run And the Continental Army on its feet again. And though they lost some battles too, The Americans swore they'd see it through, Their raiding parties kept up, hit and run. At Yorktown the British could not retreat, Bottled up by Washington and the French Fleet, Cornwallis surrendered and finally we had won! The winner! Hurray! From the shot heard 'round the world To the end of the Revolution The continental rabble took the day And the father of our country Beat the British there at Yorktown And brought freedom to you and me and the U.S.A.! God bless America, Let Freedom Ring!

Remeber it, hell I bought the CD of bands doing covers of the School House Rock songs about 4 years ago. You haven't lived until you have heard Blind Melon do a cover of Magic Number.

Man, can you imagine any major TV station today that ould allow this, my favorite SHR song, to air on their PC station? Gasp! No! It's non-revisionist history, and rebellion against a oppressive, centralized, autocratic and tax-mad government. Can't have any of that...not PC, and not the sort of thing we want to teach kids-not by any means. I also loved "Lucky 7 Samson" and "The Constitution" songs. Juggernaut[%(]

All those songs can be found on Napster.

The only way I remember the preamble to the Constitution is by reciting that song in my mind. I actually impressed a college professor once who bet the class that no one could remember it. Ha, was he shocked. Amazing how some things from your youth stick with you thru your life. Whoever came up with that idea for TV: Thanks.
