Your national anthem
So I don't have to look them up, and we can all judge the artistic value of each and claim our national superiority based on centuries-old pop songs Big Grin

If it's not in english, lyrics and translations are appreciated Smile

Here's mine:

Lyrics: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argentine_...hem#Lyrics
(fun fact, the only god mentioned in the anthem is Mars, though equality and freedom are mentioned as goddesses :monsterSmile

Short Version



Long Version

RE: Your national anthem
Oh man, this shit is embarrassing, the New Zealand national anthem sucks so much dick.

It's literally called 'God Defend New Zealand'

There's a whole lot of Maori shit that nobody knows and everyone just mumbles and then it's:


God of Nations at Thy feet,
In the bonds of love we meet,
Hear our voices, we entreat,
God defend our free land.
Guard Pacific's triple star
From the shafts of strife and war,
Make her praises heard afar,
God defend New Zealand.





I shit you not, that's my countries gay ass anthem.

I'm from the US; just say "JESUS" over and over again for a couple of minutes.

I think it's really sweet and not so war focused as most anthems, that's good. The over religious tone is kind of lame though Tongue

The music is beautiful, I like this version:

I believe they mean Van in the military sense. The Van is the foremost advanced part of a military force with the Vanguard being in charge of protecting it's flanks and rear. It's basically the tip of the spear and traditionally was occupied only by veteran forces.

RE: Your national anthem
As I'm Scottish, I have two national anthems. I won't bore you with the dreary vision of hell that is "God Save the Queen", instead have a dose of "Flower of Scotland" as performed by the writer of it:





1. O Flower of Scotland,
When will we see
Your like again
That fought and died for
Your wee bit hill and glen.
And stood against him,
Proud Edward's army,
And sent him homeward
To think again.

2. The hills are bare now,
And autumn leaves
Lie thick and still
O'er land that is lost now,
Which those so dearly held
That stood against him,
Proud Edward's army
And sent him homeward
To think again.

3. Those days are past now
And in the past
They must remain
But we can still rise now
And be the nation again!
That stood against him
Proud Edward's army
And sent him homeward
To think again.

RE: Your national anthem
We have 2 anthems. One is in dutch,the other one in sranang.
The first one,translated:
God be with our Suriname
may he elevate our sweet country
how we came here together
we are dedicated to its soil
working,we keep in mind
justice and truth will set free
all that is good to watch
will give value to our land

second,translated:
Rise countrymen,rise
the soil of our land is calling you
where ever our ancestors came from
we should take care of our country
there is a fight to fight,
we shall not be afraid
god is our leader
our whole life untill our death
we will fight for Suriname

I don't really like going outside.
It's too damn "peopley" out there....
