    Here is the whole song.

    Here is the complete lyrics

    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!

    What you say Rimmy and Charles? Lets hear your halfwit response. Write it here for all to see. We need marines running this country. Things would change very very quickly. And for the better.

    3200SK - tune in early to the Flyers / Blackwhawks Stanley Cup game #6 tonight. The game is in Philly and they have a long standing tradition to use the Kate Smith version of GBA at the begining of important gaames, of which this is certainly one. Lately, the Kate Smith recording is accompanied by Lauren Hart, a great local singer from Philly (well, actually she is from NJ which is somewhere near Philly.) Lauren is the daughter of the late Gene Hart, long time Flyers announcer)

    Yes, it's rousing. Hopefully it rouses only the Flyers.

    Obama probably don't know the words to the "Stars Spangled Banner" but I'll give odds he can rattle off stuff from the Kuran ... The people of Chicago don't even want to hear anymore of his BS and had a rally against him last Thursday waving signs letting him know their feelings ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Here, I'll do "Rimjob's" for him so he won't have to leave his milk and grahams.
