While doing a bit of research on Liechtenstein today I found you can listen to the country's national anthem on this link (just press the music note on the top bar).

I am intrigued to know what the lyrics are.

Yeah, sounds somehow familiar, doesn't it?

You can find the lyrics here (and no, it is not "God save the Prince"): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oben_am_jungen_Rhein

Thanks a lot Thomas!

Amazing the things you learn - I thought it was just a mistake on that Spanish web site.

God Save the Queen - other combinations of the tune and name. Sep 25, 2008

The tune of God Save the Queen was used for the Prussian National Anthem but the words were about hailing the laurels of victory....
The Tsarist Russian National Anthem had a different tune but it was called God Save the Tsar (Боже, Царя храни!)
