Save your bashing...and read this *ahem*

Gibraltar, Gibraltar, the rock on which I stand.

May you be forever free, Gibraltar, my own land.

Mighty pillar, rock of splendour, guardian of the sea.

Port of hope in times of need, rich in history.





Gibraltar, Gibraltar, the rock on which I stand.

May you be forever free, Gibraltar, my own land.

God give grace to this our homeland, help us to live as one.

Strong in freedom, truth and justice, let this be our song;





Gibraltar, Gibraltar, the rock on which I stand.

May you be forever free, Gibraltar! Gibraltar! my own land

There you have it, the result of a competition held not too long ago...God how I hate that anthem The tune is something like "Ave Maria" but a faster beat. Hard to describe but it hurts my ears.

I like that anthem Donut

may I reccommend this site-

Geesh, you would have thought the rest of the world has heard the REAL Aussie anthem played so often at sporting events over the past few years that they would know that the Donut version is fake. Just like at any swimming meet that Ian Thorpe attends [img]smile.gif[/img] .

Well I could almost accept Donut's anthem, itís been so damn long since I sang it I cant even remember the words. Then again, I donít think I know anyone who can sing the whole thing through; we all just seem to mumble along with everyone else... [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Australians all own ostriches
Four minus one is three.
With olden royals, weíre fair and loyal,
Our home is dirt by sea.
I learned to bounce on nature strips
In booties stitched with care.
In mysteryís haze, letís harvest maize
And plant azaleas there.
Enjoy full trains and let us in
And dance Australia yeah!

You should have stuck with the one about YOUR Queen!
Really? did they sing it on England vs Australia football match the other day? I didn't watch it as it was too late.

OK, I'll bite. I guess the thing about Ozzies is that we never take ourselves seriously. You can call us any name under the sun and it just doesn't register - if someone doesn't like us they can stick it up their sphincter. [img]tongue.gif[/img] Especially if they're Pommies - seeing as we've been flogging them for decades on the sporting field, it's the only way they can gain a measure of revenge on the colonials.

I think that Sigmar wins the worst national anthem competition!
I wish I could remember how mine went to challenge it!
Doesn't the Australian one go "Advance Australia fair...?"
