RE: Your national anthem
National Anthem of Serbistan.

The eyes of our fathers are upon us
As we stomp our enemies faces with leaden boots.
Blood and Vomit spew from the vanquished.

Oh Serbistan, Oh Serbistan, all our hearts to thee
We pledge undying loyalty.

Nations cower before our mighty tanks
Nothing but death and horror we leave behind us
Our enemies live and die in fear.

Oh Serbistan, Oh Serbistan, all our hearts to thee
We pledge undying loyalty.

And…so on.

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.

oh my non existent god... god save the queen IS the most boring thing I have ever heard...

it's also an official NZ anthem muffsy, your anthems are gay and boring, just like you Tongue

The Star Spangled Banner

Oh, say! can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming;
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there:
Oh, say! does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?


America the Beautiful

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

O beautiful for pilgrim feet,
Whose stern impassion'd stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness!
America! America! God mend thine ev'ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!

O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev'ry gain divine!

O Beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam,
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

My Country 'Tis of Thee

My country tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing.
Land where my fathers died!
Land of the Pilgrim's pride!
From every mountain side,
Let freedom ring!

My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love.
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rapture fills
Like that above.

Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom's song.
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake;
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.

Our father's God to, Thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright
With freedom's holy light;
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God, our King!
I never knew "America the Beautiful" has all those verses!

RE: Your national anthem
English lyrics of the danish national anthem:

There is a lovely land
it stands with broad beeches
near the salty eastern strand
It winds itself in hill, valley,
it is called old Denmark
and it is Freja's hall

There sat in former times,
the armour-suited warriors,
rested from conflict
Then they set out to slay the foe,
now their bones are resting
behind the mound's menhir

That country is still lovely,
because the sea waves so blue frolic,
and the foliage stands so green
And noble women, beautiful maidens,
and men and brisk swains
inhabit the Danes' islands

Our language is strong and soft,
Our faith is pure and purified
And courage is not dead.
And each a Danish is just free,
Each faithfully obeys his/her king,
But slavery is over.

A friendly South in the North
Is the green Dane-realm,
Your clad ax-clad Earth.
And the ship walks itsproud way.
Where the plow and the keel furrows
There hope does not fail.

Our Danish flag is beautiful
The fans along the Sea
With Flag Red Bay.
And always has his white Colour
Your Holy Cross in blood,
O Flag of Denmark in battle.

Pure is the Danes's Spirit
It hates Prejudice's fetters,
And fascination's ties.
For friendship open, cold for mockery
Beats the Jute's honest heart,
For girl, country and king.

I swap Denmark not,
For Russia's winter deserts,
For Southern May Flowers.
We do not know plague and serpents
Not the melancholy of the west
Not the rage of the east.

Our time does not stand in reek,
It has raised his voice
Of Science and Arts.
Not Bragi's and not Mímir's cry
Aroused in equal stretch
A better hope for the future.

Not large, our native soil,
However soars among cities
Your proud Copenhagen.
To better City did the sea not come
Yes no river in the valley;
From Trondhiem and to Rome.

With holy remand
Preserve you, All-father!
Our old dynasty.
King Fredrik resembles Fredegod;
Where is a better prince
Of better hero blood?

Hail king and fatherland!
Hail every a Dane-citizen,
who works, what he can
Our old Denmark shall endure,
as long as the beech reflects
its top in the blue wave




I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you
do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will
understand why I dismiss yours.

English lyrics if you feel like it
1
Yes, we love this country
as it rises forth,
rugged, weathered, above the sea,
with the thousands of homes.
Love, love it and think
of our father and mother
and the saga night that sends
dreams to our earth.
And the saga night that sends,
dreams to our earth.

2
This country Harald united
with his army of heroes,
this country Håkon protected
whilst Øyvind sung;
upon the country Olav painted
with his blood the cross,
from its heights Sverre spoke
up against Rome.

3
Farmers their axes sharpened
wherever an army advanced,
Tordenskjold along the coastline thundered
so that we could see it back home.
Even women stood up and fought
as if they were men;
others could only cry
but that soon would end!

4
Sure, we were not many
but we were enough,
when we were tested sometimes,
and it was at stake;
we would rather burn our land
than to declare defeat;
just remember what happened
down at Fredrikshald!

5
Hard times we have coped with,
were at last disowned;
but in the worst distress, blue-eyed
freedom was to us born.
It gave (us) father's strength to carry
famine and war,
it gave death itself its honour -
and it gave reconciliation.


6
The enemy threw away his weapon,
up the visor went,
we, in wonder, to him hastened,
because he was our brother.
Driven forth to a stand by shame
we went to the south;
now we three brothers stand united,
and shall stand like that!

7
Norwegian man in house and cabin,
thank your great God!
The country he wanted to protect,
although things looked dark.
All the fights fathers have fought,
and the mothers have wept,
the Lord has quietly moved
so we won our rights.

(video stops here)

8
Yes, we love this country
as it rises forth,
rugged, weathered, above the sea,
with those thousand homes.
And as the fathers' struggle has raised
it from need to victory,
even we, when it is demanded,
for its peace will encamp (for defence).

Neida, dere dansker er ok dere. Selvom dere har alt for mye flatmark.

RE: Your national anthem
You guys all have creepy and militant national anthems. Probably to scare away your neighbours. 200 years from now your nations will sing of majestic bombs and swift missiles that guard thy precious lands.

I can at least be content with my hippie environmentalist anthem Angel




At the same time, I propose a new version of Star Spangled Banner. America is supposed to be a peaceful and free melting pot of cultures. And what better melts cultures than acid?

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.
