"The Star Splanged Banner" as written by Derryck Thornton, Mark Rankin and Francis Scott Key....
O say, can you see
By the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hail'd
At the twilight's
last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes
And bright stars
Thro' the perilous fight

O'er the ramparts we watch'd
Were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare
The bombs bursting in air
Gave proof thro' the night
That our flag was still there

O say
Does that star-spangled banner
Yet wave
O'er the land of the free
And the home of the brave?
