Brian McKnight – The Star Spangled Banner lyrics
feat. The Boys Choir of Harlem

Oh, say, can you see
By the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed
At the twilight's last gleaming

And the rockets red glare
The bombs bursting in air
Gave proof through the night
That our flag was still there

Oh, say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free
And the home of the, of the brave
