I didn't know the national anthem

Hannidy had a man on the street interview yesterday where he asked people to sing the national anthem. I was embarrased that I could do no better than his participants. I guess I haven't been to enough games lately. I am really going to try and learn the words and then work on my singing voice.

The Star-Spangled Banner

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 banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
