The Star Spangled Banner

Composed by Francis Scott Key in defense
of Fort McHenry, Sept. 20th, 1814; Congress
proclaimed it the U.S, National Anthem in 1931

We'll sing this song
Along with the crowd
There's always a singer
Who sings it out loud

At sporting events
They won’t start the game
This song will be sung
Our pride we proclaim

At the Olympics
Our athletes won gold
Their anthem was played
A sight to behold

Four stanzas were written
By Francis Scott Key
He wrote as a tribute
To our great country

Our National Anthem
We'll rise when we sing
The flag will be flown
And tears this may bring

The Star Spangled Banner
It states we are free
We’re the home of the brave
And we all should agree
