The Star-Spangled Banner is the national anthem of the United States of America. It was written by the 35-year-old lawyer and amateur poet Francis Scott Key in 1814. The poem was set to the tune of a popular British song written by John Stafford Smith for the Anacreontic Society, a men's social club in London.

Changes in bold Edit

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 flag of pride yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home for the gay?
