And who else memorized the preamble to the Constitution for school using that song? You just had to remember to insert "of the United States" after "we, the people."

I taught the preamble song to my kids and shared it with a teacher who had no idea it existed. I remember listening to it and "The Great American Melting Pot" right after 9-11 and I burst into tears.

I remember it.

It mostly ran through the 1970s, then they brought it back and made new ones again in the mid-late 90s during ABC's Saturday Morning cartoon block.

I'm one of the few that liked Cop Rock. Wasn't it just a precursor to shows like Glee?

INTERJECTIONS!!!!!



Interjections (hey!) show excitement (yow!) or emotion (ouch!)
Theyr'e generally set apart from a sentence by an exclamation point,
or by a comma when the feeling is not as strong.


so when your happy............or sad.............or frightened, or mad, or excited, or glad,


an interjection starts the sentence right



interjection !!!!

Funny, when I was a kid, I never liked the math-related ones, but loved the American history and grammar-related ones.

Now as an adult, I love history and I'm a total grammar-Nazi. I do okay at math, but don't love it. And I look back fondly on the America Rock and Grammar Rock videos, but yawn at the ones on numbers and math.

As a kid, I could watch the "You Know They're Nouns" song or "Just a Bill" over and over again, but if "Figure eight" or "Zero is my Hero" came on, I'd go to the bathroom or to the kitchen to re-load my bowl of Apple Jacks.
