    • Lisa: "The Magna Carta song"
      Lisa's "Magna Carta" song is a reference to the song featured on the 1976 America Rock segment "The Preamble". Many people have used the music from this segment to help them memorize the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution. For those who recall the tune, here are the words to the Preamble...

      We The People In Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare and secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish the Constitution of the United States of America.
