FRENCH NAT'L ANTHEM

La Marseillaise
(The Song of Marseilles)
Original French Words
Allons enfants de la patrie,
Le jour de gloire est arrivé!
Contre nous, de la tyrannie
L'étendard sanglant est levé
(repeat)
Entendez vous dans les campagnes
Mugir ces féroces soldats?
Ils viennent jusque dans nos bras
Egorger vos fils, vos compagnes.
CHORUS
Aux armes, citoyens!
Formez vos bataillons!
Marchons! Marchons!
Qu'un sang impur
Abreuve nos sillons!
Amour sacré de la patrie,
Conduis, soutiens nos bras vengeurs!
Liberté, Liberté chérie,
Combats avec les défenseurs!
(repeat)
Sous nos drapeaux, que la victoire
Accoure à tes mâles accents!
Que tes ennemis expirants
Voient ton triomphe et notre gloire!
CHORUS

English Translation
Ye sons of France, awake to glory!
Hark! Hark! the people bid you rise
Your children, wives, and grandsires hoary
Behold their tears and hear their cries!
(repeat)
Shall hateful tyrants, mischief breeding,
With hireling hosts a ruffian band
Affright and desolate the land
While peace and liberty lie bleeding?
CHORUS
To arms, to arms, ye brave!
Th'avenging sword unsheathe!
March on, march on, all hearts resolved
On liberty or death.
Oh liberty can man resign thee,
Once having felt thy gen'rous flame?
Can dungeons, bolts, and bar confine thee?
Or whips thy noble spirit tame?
(repeat)
Too long the world has wept bewailing
That falsehood's dagger tyrants wield;
But freedom is our sword and shield
And all their arts are unavailing.
CHORUS

Nicaragua National Anthem

Salve a ti Nicaragua en tu suelo,
Ya no ruge la voz del cañón
Ni se tiñe con sangre de hermanos
Tu glorioso pendón bicolor,
Ni se tiñe con sangre de hermanos
Tu glorioso pendón bicolor.
Brille hermosa la paz en tu cielo,
Nada empañe tu gloria in mortal
Que el trabajo es tu digno laurel
Y el honor es tu enseña triunfal,
es tu enseña triunfal.

In English:

Hail to you, Nicaragua.
The cannon's voice no longer roars,
Nor does the blood of our brothers
Stain your glorious bicoloured flag.
Nor does the blood of our brothers
Stain your glorious bicoloured flag.
Peace shines in beauty in your skies,
Nothing dims your immortal glory,
For work is what earns your laurels
And honour is your triumphal ensign.

NAtional Anthem of Slovenia


Zdravljice
(The Toast)

Prijatli obrodile so trte vince nam sladko,
Ki nam ozivlja zile, srce razjasni in oko,
Ki vtopi vse skrbi, v po trtih prsih up budi,
Ki vtopi vse skrbi v potrtih prsih up,
v potrtih prsih up budi.
¦i-ve vsi narodi, ki hrepene do¹akat dan:
Da, koder sonce hodi, prepir iz sveta bo pregnan,
Ko rojak prost bo vsak, ne vrag, le sosed bo mejak,
Ko rojak prost bo vsak, ne vrag, le sosed bo,
Ne vrag, le sosed bo mejak.

English Translation
God's blessing on all nations,
Who long and work for that bright day,
When o'er earth's habitation
No war, no strife shall hold its sway;
Who long to see
That all man free
No more shall foes, but neighbours be.
Who long to see
That all man free
No more shall foes, but
No more shall foes, but neighbours be.

Any US Citizen over, say 18, who doesnt know the words to the Star Spangled Banner are a pathetic Citizeb at that, I have known this song since I was at least 10, just a reminder at how far our nation has fallen in terms on nationallity and patrioticism.
