You know you’ve made it when you’re asked to sing the Star Spangled Banner. And many people use it to make a statement. If you mess up during the national anthem, it could ruin your career. So before you try to be famous, make sure you know the words.
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?
