This may have already made it's rounds, but I just saw it. I never knew of the portion of the national anthem he sings.


Here he is on FoxNews......

Why do people always think there's a conspiracy to keep something from them, if there's something they're not aware of? :rolleyes: The four verses can be found in about one second on Google. Very seldom does anyone go past the first verse.

O! say can you see by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through 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?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner, O! long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory 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.

Now, what we really never hear is the British drinking song that is the basis for our national anthem.

I didn't mean you, RY, by the way; I was referring to the interview with the Marine.

Most people his age don't even know what a google is.;)

I didn't know anything about it. Then again, I've never looked.

Most people only know the first verse because that is all there is usually time for at public events.


When I was a little kid, I thought the second verse of the national anthem was "Play Ball".
