Hello,

Does anyone know where I can find a French translation of the Star Spangled Banner? I would like the full translation of all four verses, if possible.

Thanks in advance for any references,
Vera

There are two versions in this page, including one apparently approved by the U.S embassy:

The Anacreontick Song Dec 17, 2009

By John Stafford Smith, composed ca 1799 is in fact the original source of this song. It is a glee (those of you know what that is) and is basically a text about drinking, see

(though the youtube performance is not a glee and is pretty awful to boot!)
