Star Spangled Banner
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 thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
Oh, say kin yo' ass spot by da dawn's early-like light
Whut so's proud-like we hailed at da damn twilight's last glaimin'? Whose broad
stripes an' bright stars thru da puh'ilous fight,
O'a' da damn ramparts we watched wuz so's gallant-like straimin'? An' da damn
rocket's red glare, da bombs burstin' in air,
Gave proof through da damn night dat our flag wuz still dair.
Oh, say duz dat stah'-spangled banna' yet wave
O'a' da damn land o' da damn free an' da damn crib o' da damn brave?
"I'm going to meet the greatest umpire of all, and he knows I'm innocent."
