  • Damn right I do.

    Oh 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 homes and the war's desolation.
    Blest with vict'ry 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!

    • I also know the all the words to our Pledge of Allegiance which I say proudly every morning to the flag.

      "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

  • Yes I do all of it

  • No. I barely know any of them because I only heard it a couple of times. I don't really see the purpose so I don't feel bad about it.

  • God bless America, the land that has 1 dollar burgers with fries, performs assassinations, school shootings, and deaths, and civilian shootings, racism, fat people, governmental irresponsibility, fake tits, and most dreams never come true! But at least we have west borough baptist church... wait a second.

  • I'll try to write it down right now.

    Oh dierbaar Belgiƫ, oh heilig land der vaad'ren
    Onze ziel en ons hart zijn u gewijd
    Aanvaard ons lot en het bloed van onze aad'ren
    Wees ons doel in arbeid en in strijd

    Yeah I don't know what comes after that.
