Star spangled banner, I only remember the first and last verses though....

O thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war's desolation.
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the Heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: 'In God is our trust.'
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I do! and something that sparks the patriotism in me is a verse wich comparte our contrymen to spartans..


A source of legitimate glory
And a great lesson in spartan pride.
Her innate bravery shall not waver:
In every man there is an immortal hero
Who knows how to maintain the level
Of the proverbial valour of old.

Lijepa naša domovino (Our Beautiful Homeland)

I only know a few sentences, but it would be weird to translate those into English.

The day we get an anthem for Earth itself. That will be the day I legitimately care.

The funny thing is I went to a school that was really anal about it but never bothered with the second half because it took up an extra minute or two.

Oh flower of Scotland
When will we see your like again
who fought and died for
your wee bit hill and glen
and stood against them
proud Edward's army
and sent him homeward
tae think again

The hills are bare now
and autumn leaves
lie thick and still
o'er land that is lost now
that we so dearly held
and stood against him
proud Edward's army
and sent him homeward
tae think again

Those times are past now
and in the past
they must remain
but we can still rise now
and be the nation again
that stood against them
proud Edward's army
and sent him homeward
tae think again.

Minor things were wrong such as the line being "that fought and died for" rather than "who fought and died for" and not being sure if it was against "them" or "him" but still, I think it's a yes.

I wanna be the very best,
Like no one ever was.
To catch them is my real test,
To train them is my cause.1
I will travel across the land,
Searching far and wide.
Each Pokemon to understand
The power that's inside
Pokemon, (gotta catch them all) its you and me
I know its my destiny
Pokemon, oh, you're my best friend
In a world we must defend
Pokemon, (gotta catch them all) a heart so true
Our courage will pull us through
You teach me and I'll teach you
(Po-ke-mon) Gotta catch 'em all
Every challenge along the way
With courage I will face
I will battle every day
To claim my rightful place
Come with me, the time is right
There's no better team
Arm in arm we'll win the fight
It's always been our dream
Pokemon!

Song's fire tho

Front to back, in and out. And several others. I like national anthems. They're like ordinary music to me.
