The Grumpy Old Man [userpic]
english / german / french / english

Not sure these strictly count as song lyrics, as the poem was written first and set to music later.


Just the last stanza:

And consequently it is indeed, as free men is
between their liked houses and the devastation of the war.
Blest with a victory and peace, can this country
praise saved the energy which trained us and preserved hath a nation.
Must conquer us when our cause is right him,
and this one is our slogan, "in the god is our confidence."
And Stern-spangled flag in Triumph periodically moves of
O' er the country of free and the house of the courageous one.

I recognize it as the Star-Spangled Banner... but I haven't read the entire poem in a very long time.
