    I've always liked the lyrics to the first verse of our national anthem.

    [YOUTUBE]jAYPN-1Yjt0[/YOUTUBE]

    "The Star-Spangled Banner" is the national anthem of the United States of America. The lyrics come from "Defence of Fort McHenry", a poem written in 1814 by the 35-year-old amateur poet Francis Scott Key after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry by Royal Navy ships in Chesapeake Bay during the Battle of Baltimore in the War of 1812.

    The poem was set to the tune of a popular British drinking song, written by John Stafford Smith for the Anacreontic Society, a men's social club in London. "The Anacreontic Song" (or "To Anacreon in Heaven"), set to various lyrics, was already popular in the United States. Set to Key's poem and renamed "The Star-Spangled Banner", it would soon become a well-known American patriotic song.

    The current English national anthem.

    [YOUTUBE]MeP220xx7Bs[/YOUTUBE]

    God save the queen
    The fascist regime
    They made you a moron
    Potential H-bomb

    God save the queen
    She ain't no human being
    There is no future
    In England's dreaming

    Don't be told what you want
    Don't be told what you need
    There's no future, no future,
    No future for you

    God save the queen
    We mean it man
    We love our queen
    God saves

    God save the queen
    'Cause tourists are money
    And our figurehead
    Is not what she seems

    Oh God save history
    God save your mad parade
    Oh Lord God have mercy
    All crimes are paid

    When there's no future
    How can there be sin
    We're the flowers in the dustbin
    We're the poison in your human machine
    We're the future, your future

    God save the queen
    We mean it man
    We love our queen
    God saves

    God save the queen
    We mean it man
    And there is no future
    In England's dreaming

    No future, no future,
    No future for you
    No future, no future,
    No future for me

    No future, no future,
    No future for you
    No future, no future
    For you

    Het Wilhelmus

    Usually only the 1th stanza (and sometimes 6th as well ) is being played or sung.

    Wilhelmus van Nassouwe
    ben ik, van Duitsen bloed,
    den vaderland getrouwe
    blijf ik tot in den dood.
    Een Prinse van Oranje
    ben ik, vrij, onverveerd,
    den Koning van Hispanje
    heb ik altijd geerd.

    Mijn schild ende betrouwen
    zijt Gij, o God mijn Heer,
    op U zo wil ik bouwen,
    Verlaat mij nimmermeer.
    Dat ik doch vroom mag blijven,
    uw dienaar t'aller stond,
    de tirannie verdrijven
    die mij mijn hart doorwondt.

    Default statistically,

    if california were an independent state...
    On a dark desert highway; cool wind in my hair;
    the warm smell of colitas rising up through the air -
    up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light.
    My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim: I had to stop for the night.

    There she stood - in the doorway; I heard the mission bell
    and I was thinking to myself, "This could be heaven or this could be hell."
    Then, she lit up that candle and she showed me the way.
    There were voices down the corridor, I thought I heard them say...

    "Welcome to the Hotel California, such a lovely place; such a lovely face.
    There's plenty of room at the Hotel California, any time of year, you can find it here."

    Her mind is tiffany-twisted; she got the mercedes-bends;
    she got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends:
    how they dance in the courtyard - sweet summer-sweat -
    (some dance to remember/some dance to forget).

    So, I called up the captain, "Please, bring me my wine."
    He said, "We haven't had that spirit here since nineteen-sixty-nine."
    And, still, those voices are calling from far away -
    they wake you up in the middle of the night, just to hear them say...

    "Welcome to the Hotel California, such a lovely place; such a lovely face.
    They're living it up at the Hotel California - what a nice surprise, bring your alibis."

    Mirrors on the ceiling, there's pink champagne on ice,
    and she said "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device."
    and in their master's chamber, they gathered for the feast:
    they stab it with their steely knives, but, they just can't kill the beast.

    Last thing I remember, I was running for the door:
    I had to find the passage back to the place I was before.
    "Relax." said the night-man, "We are programmed to receive:
    You can check-out any time you like, but, you can never leave."

    "Els Segadors" (The Reapers) is the national anthem of Catalonia. It has been an unofficial anthem of the Catalan people since the late 19th century, and the official and national one since 1993.

    The song is based on the events of 1639 and 1640 when Catalans fought against The Count-Duke of Olivares, the chief minister of King Philip IV of Spain: the Reapers' War.

    Catalonia triumphant
    Shall once again be rich and bountiful,
    Drive them back, those people
    So conceited and so arrogant.

    A good blow with the sickle,
    A good blow with the sickle,
    Defenders of the land!
    A good blow with the sickle!

    Now is the time, reapers,
    Now is the time to be alert.
    For when another June comes,
    Let us sharpen our tools well.

    A good blow with the sickle,
    A good blow with the sickle,
    Defenders of the land!
    A good blow with the sickle!

    Let the enemy tremble
    On seeing our banner.
    Just as we cut down golden stalks of wheat,
    When the time is right, we shall reap the chains.

    A good blow with the sickle,
    A good blow with the sickle,
    Defenders of the land!
    A good blow with the sickle!
