LYRICS:

INTRO:
In the United States of America, government is divided into not one, not two, but three branches of power
CHORUS:
One, Two, Three Branches Who's got the power, but who's got the power?(x4)
VERSE 1:
SCOTT: Who's got the power? Tell me who's in charge Of this country that's so vast and large
JEFF: Come on man, it's the president, in the White House Making sure the country's rules are carried out
SCOTT: Nah, it's gotta be Congress on Capitol Hill They make the laws and they make the bills
MARC: Well, what about the Court, the Supreme Court? Gets rid of any law if it seems out of sort
SCOTT: Then who's got the power? Tell me who's in charge Of this country, that's so vast and large
JEFF: 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?(x4)
VERSE 2:
SCOTT: 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
MARC: Hey, wait a minute, whoa, don't cut the debate short Thinking you can just forget the Supreme Court Judges of the court, yeah the president hire But then they get to serve until they die or retire And if branches can't agree on fair play The Supreme Court always has final say
SCOTT: So who's got the power? Tell me who's in charge Of this country that's so vast and large
JEFF: Well, as you see, the three give each other challenges
MARC: 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?(x4)
