Three Branches Rap – Smart Songs

August 25, 2019


In the United States of America, government
is divided into not one, not two, but three branches of power One, Two, Three Branches
Who’s got the power, but who’s got the power? One, Two, Three Branches
Who’s got the power, but who’s got the power? One, Two, Three Branches
Who’s got the power, but who’s got the power? One, Two, Three Branches
Who’s got the power, but who’s got the power? Who’s got the power? Tell me who’s in charge
Of this country that’s so vast and large Come on man, it’s the president, in the White House Making sure the country’s rules are carried out Nah, it’s gotta be Congress on Capitol Hill
They make the laws and they make the bills Well, what about the Court, the Supreme Court? Gets rid of any law if it seems out of sort Then who’s got the power? Tell me who’s in charge
Of this country, that’s so vast and large I just said the prez tops the other two
Get a sense of what the president can do: He can take any bill that Congress wrote up
And veto that bill to say “hold up” And the president gets to be the one who picks
The new Supreme Court justices One, Two, Three Branches
Who’s got the power? But who’s got the power? But who’s got the power? One, Two, Three Branches
Who’s got the power? But who’s got the power? One, Two, Three Branches
Who’s got the power? But who’s got the power? One, Two, Three Branches
Who’s got the power, but who’s got the power? No way, no way, no way, man, you’re wrong
Congress is the branch that’s mighty and strong Even if a president’s veto blocks a bill Congress can vote again and pass it still
So what the Court can say a law is worthless? Congress can impeach a judge if he deserves this Hey, wait a minute, woah, don’t cut the
debate short Thinking you can just forget the Supreme Court Judges of the Court, yeah the presidents hire But then they get to serve until they die
or retire And if the branches can’t agree on fair play
The Supreme Court always has final say So who’s got the power? Tell me who’s in charge
Of this country that’s so vast and large Well, as you see, the three give each other
challenges They check on each other: che-che-checks and
balances One, Two, Three Branches
Who’s got the power, but who’s got the power? One, Two, Three Branches
Who’s got the power, but who’s got the power? One, Two, Three Branches
Who’s got the power, but who’s got the power? One, Two, Three Branches
Who’s got the power, but who’s got the power?

    P.S thanks so much.. this helped me a lot in my social studies test

  5. 2:51 boi savage, and at 2:16 if you put the speed at 0.5, the background music sounds like the Roblox death sound or the OOF but auto-tuned.

  6. Your songs are really cool. I've not ever been a fan of rap music, but I love these songs, as they are catchy and full of information. I loved the touches like the arm wrestling and the tug of war scenes.

  7. It's the people who's got the power. By our Constitution's law, all three work for the citizens of America.
