    Cool What's your state/country's song?

    Title says it all.

    My state has the awesomest song yet. It has two versions, even better.

    State lyrics:
    On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
    Grand old Badger State!
    We, your loyal sons and daughters,
    Hail thee, good and great.
    On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
    Champion of the right,
    "Forward", our motto,
    God will give thee might!

    Badger game lyrics:
    On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
    Plunge right through that line!
    * Run the ball clear down the field,
    * A touchdown sure this time. (U rah rah)
    On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
    Fight on for her fame
    Fight! Fellows! - fight, fight, fight!
    We'll win this game.

    On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
    Stand up, Badgers, sing!
    "Forward" is our driving spirit,
    Loyal voices ring.
    On, Wisconsin! On, Wisconsin!
    Raise her glowing flame
    Stand, Fellows, let us now
    Salute her name!


    So what's YOUR state/country's song?

    I don't think my state has a song, but I bet it sucks.

    "Texas, Our Texas"

    Texas, Our Texas! all hail the mighty State!
    Texas, Our Texas! so wonderful so great!
    Boldest and grandest, withstanding ev'ry test
    O Empire wide and glorious, you stand supremely blest.
    (chorus)

    Texas, O Texas! your freeborn single star,
    Sends out its radiance to nations near and far,
    Emblem of Freedom! it set our hearts aglow,
    With thoughts of San Jacinto and glorious Alamo.
    (chorus)

    Texas, dear Texas! from tyrant grip now free,
    Shines forth in splendor, your star of destiny!
    Mother of heroes, we come your children true,
    Proclaiming our allegiance, our faith, our love for you.
    Chorus

    God bless you Texas! And keep you brave and strong,
    That you may grow in power and worth, throughout the ages long.
    God bless you Texas! And keep you brave and strong,

    I don't remember the lyrics, but it's "My Old Kentucky Home" by Stephen Foster if you all want to look that up on google or something.

    Aussie states dont have individual songs...but our national anthem is Advance Australia Fair. Its amazing how few Aussies even know there's more than two verses. Admittedley, Verses 2,4 and 5 are never sung anymore, but they're technically part of the anthem.

    Verse One

    Australians all let us rejoice,
    For we are young and free;
    We've golden soil and wealth for toil,
    Our home is girt by sea;
    Our land abounds in Nature's gifts
    Of beauty rich and rare;
    In history's page, let every stage
    Advance Australia fair!
    In joyful strains then let us sing,
    "Advance Australia fair!"

    Verse Two

    When gallant Cook from Albion sail'd,
    To trace wide oceans o'er,
    True British courage bore him on,
    Till he landed on our shore.
    Then here he raised Old England's flag,
    The standard of the brave;
    With all her faults we love her still,
    "Brittannia rules the wave!"
    In joyful strains then let us sing
    "Advance Australia fair!"

    Verse Three

    Beneath our radiant southern Cross,
    We'll toil with hearts and hands;
    To make this Commonwealth of ours
    Renowned of all the lands;
    For those who've come across the seas
    We've boundless plains to share;
    With courage let us all combine
    To advance Australia fair.
    In joyful strains then let us sing
    "Advance Australia fair!"


    Verse Four

    While other nations of the globe
    Behold us from afar,
    We'll rise to high renown and shine
    Like our glorious southern star;
    From England, Scotia, Erin's Isle,
    Who come our lot to share,
    Let all combine with heart and hand
    To advance Australia fair!
    In joyful strains then let us sing
    "Advance Australia fair!"

    Verse Five

    Shou'd foreign foe e'er sight our coast,
    Or dare a foot to land,
    We'll rouse to arms like sires of yore
    To guard our native strand;
    Brittannia then shall surely know,
    Beyond wide ocean's roll,
    Her sons in fair Australia's land
    Still keep a British soul.
    In joyful strains the let us sing
    "Advance Australia fair!"

    Well, this is how we usually sing at at school assemblies.

    E Ihowā Atua,
    O ngā iwi mātou rā
    Āta whakarangona;
    Me aroha noa
    Kia hua ko te pai;
    Kia tau tō atawhai;
    Manaakitia mai
    Aotearoa

    God of nations! at Thy feet
    In the bonds of love we meet,
    Hear our voices, we entreat,
    God defend our Free Land.
    Guard Pacific's triple star,
    From the shafts of strife and war,
    Make her praises heard afar,
    God defend New Zealand

    I'm quite sure Arizona has a cheesy song about the legend of the Lost Dutchman dying with his gold in the Superstition Mountains. It's sooooo convincing, even though the huge mine operation up there now would have just blown the thing to pieces if there really was a wagonload of gold in there. XD

    Trust me, they care nothing about malevolent spirits either. The campground is built on what was previously Indian land at one point. *cough*Shining*cough*

    I'm originally from Illinois (Chicagoland FTW) and this is our state song:


    Illinois
    Written by C.H. Chamberlain
    Composed by Archibald Johnston

    By thy rivers gently flowing, Illinois, Illinois,
    O'er thy prairies verdant growing, Illinois, Illinois,
    Comes an echo on the breeze.
    Rustling through the leafy trees, and its mellow tones are these, Illinois, Illinois,
    And its mellow tones are these, Illinois.

    From a wilderness of prairies, Illinois, Illinois,
    Straight thy way and never varies, Illinois, Illinois,
    Till upon the inland sea,
    Stands thy great commerical tree, turning all the world to thee, Illinois, Illinois,
    Turning all the world to thee, Illinois.

    When you heard your country calling, Illinois, Illinois,
    Where the shot and shell were falling, Illinois, Illinois,
    When the Southern host withdrew,
    Pitting Gray against the Blue, There were none more brave than you, Illinois, Illinois,
    There were none more brave than you, Illinois.

    Not without thy wondrous story, Illinois, Illinois,
    Can be writ the nation's glory, Illinois, Illinois,
    On the record of thy years,
    Abraham Lincoln's name appears, Grant and Logan, and our tears, Illinois, Illinois,
    Grant and Logan, and our tears, Illinois.

    ----------------------

    However, I'm currently living in California for graduate school and this is their state song:

    I love You California
    Written by F. B. Silverwood
    Composed by A. F. Frankenstein

    I love you, California, you're the greatest state of all
    I love you in the winter, summer, spring, and in the fall.
    I love your fertile valleys; your dear mountains I adore,
    I love your grand old ocean and I love her rugged shore.

    chorus

    I love your redwood forests - love your fields of yellow grain,
    I love your summer breezes, and I love your winter rain,
    I love you, land of flowers; land of honey, fruit and wine,
    I love you, California; you have won this heart of mine.

    chorus

    I love your old gray Missions - love your vineyards streteching far,
    I love you, California, with your Golden Gate ajar,
    I love your purple sunsets, love your skies of azure blue,
    I love you, California; I just can't help loving you.

    chorus

    I love you, Catalina - you are very dear to me,
    I love you, Tamalpais, and I love Yosemite,
    I love you, Land of Sunshine, half your beauties are untold,
    I loved you in my childhood, and I'll love you when I'm old.

    chorus

    When the snow crowned Golden Sierras
    Keep their watch o'er the valleys bloom.
    It is there I would be in our land by the sea,
    Ev'ry breeze bearing rich perfume,
    It is here nature gives of her rarest,
    It is Home Sweet Home to me.
    And I know when I die I shall breathe my last sigh
    For my sunny California.

    I'm from New Jersey, this is the "official" state song.

    I'm From New Jersey
    Written & Music by Red Mascara

    Verse (Ad lib)
    I know of a state that's a perfect playland with white sandy beaches by the sea;
    With fun-filled mountains, lakes and parks, and folks with hospitality;
    With historic towns where battles were fought, and presidents have made their home;
    It's called New Jersey, and I toast and tout it wherever I may roam. 'Cause . . .

    First Chorus
    I'M FROM NEW JERSEY and I'm proud about it, I love the Garden State.
    I'M FROM NEW JERSEY and I want to shout it, I think it's simply great.
    All of the other states throughout the nation may mean a lot to some;
    But I wouldn't want another, Jersey is like no other, I'm glad that's where I'm from.

    Second Chorus
    If you want glamour, try Atlantic City or Wildwood by the sea;
    Then there is Trenton, Princeton, and Fort Monmouth, they all made history.
    Each little town has got that certain something, from High Point to Cape May;
    And some place like Mantoloking, Phillipsburg, or Hoboken will steal your heart away.

    I'm from Argentina, so I'll just translate the anthem (mind you, I'm not very sure about this translation but... XD):

    Hear ye, mortals, the sacred yell of
    "Liberty, liberty, liberty!"
    Hear the sound of broken chains
    See the throne of noble equality
    The throne that has already been opened...
    The united provinces of the South

    And the free people of the world reply
    to the great Argentine nation, "Cheers!"
    (x3)

    May the laurels that we earned be eternal
    The laurels that we earned...
    Crowned with glory,
    Let us all live

    And oh, let's swear to die with glory
    Let's swear to die with glory
    (fanfare)

    Uhm, just in case you wanted to know what my anthem said, now you know! :D Here you go, if you maybe wanted to hear it.

    states have songs?! o_O

    Well since it appears all states have one, I'm sure Louisiana's is the same as the rest, however, considering how big the Saints are, I'm sure our state song changed to "WHO DAT? WHO DAT? WHO DAT SAID THEY GONNA BEAT DEM SAINTS" lmfao

    Florida

    The Swanee River
    (Old Folks at Home)
    Written by Stephen C. Foster

    Way down upon de Swanee Ribber,
    Far, far away,
    Dere's wha my heart is turning ebber,
    Dere's wha de old folks stay.
    All up and down de whole creation
    Sadly I roam,
    Still longing for de old plantation,
    And for de old folks at home.

    Chorus

    All de world am sad and dreary,
    Eb-rywhere I roam;
    Oh, darkeys, how my heart grows weary,
    Far from de old folks at home!

    2nd verse

    All round de little farm I wandered
    When I was young,
    Den many happy days I squandered,
    Many de songs I sung.
    When I was playing wid my brudder
    Happy was I;
    Oh, take me to my kind old mudder!
    Dere let me live and die.

    3rd Verse

    One little hut among de bushes,
    One dat I love
    Still sadly to my memory rushes,
    No matter where I rove.
    When will I see de bees a-humming
    All round de comb?
    When will I hear de banjo strumming,
    Down in my good old home?

    ----
    ALSO THE OLD ONE

    Florida, My Florida
    Written by Rev Dr. C. V. Waugh

    Land of my birth, bright sunkissed land,
    Florida, my Florida.
    Laded by the Gulf and Ocean grand,
    Florida, my Florida.

    Of all the States in East or West,
    Unto my heart thou art the best
    Here may I live, here may I rest
    Florida, my Florida.

    The golden fruit the world outshines
    Florida, my Florida,
    Thy gardens and thy phosphate mines,
    Florida, my Florida,

    In country, town, or hills and dells,
    Florida, my Florida,
    The rythmic chimes of the school bells
    Florida, my Florida,

    Will call thy children day by day
    To learn to walk the patriot's way
    Firmly to stand for thee for aye
    Florida, my Florida.

    Yield their rich store of good supply,
    To still the voice of hunger's cry
    For thee we'll live, for thee we'll die
    Florida, my Florida.

    i like the old song better :U

    In English:

    Noble Belgium - forever a dear land -
    You, our hearts and our arms, we give.
    With pure blood split for you, Fatherland
    We swear with one cry - You will live!
    You will live, great and beautiful,
    As shall ever your unity
    As is your emblem immortal -
    For King, Justice and Liberty!
    As is your emblem immortal -
    For King, Justice and Liberty!
    For King, Justice and Liberty!
    For King, Justice and Liberty!

    It's something like that - I don't actually know it in English.
