Well as most of you know the Star Spangled Banner is are national anthem, but it is surprising how few people actually know what the lyrics mean, I mean come on how many people actually know what a rampart is nowadays? SO I did a little translation of the anthem so enjoy!
O say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light?
Can you see in the early morning, that glorious flag?
Whats so proudly we hail’d at the twight’s last gleaming?
How we stood agaist the cannons and rocket even up till the long night?
O’er the ramparts we watch’d, were so gallantly streaming?
Over the protective barrier we watched, as are flag was proudly waving
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
And the cannons fire and rocket illuminated the the light,
Gave proof thro’ the night that our flag was still there.
Are flag showed all that we had survived the battle.
O say, does that star- spangled banner yet wave
And does that flag still wave over the fort
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
For are land that we protected.
