why do they always over sing it? There is no dignity to that. I think the original anthem "My Country, 'Tis of Thee" had an altogether more dignified and patriotic sound to it.
Anyway, the complicated lyrics of the current anthem are beyond the abilities of most current US residents; it needs to be dumbed down in phases. In stage one, which has already been implemented, they just replace every word with "USA" chanted in monotone and even tempo.
Come the 2020`s, the difficult "A" will be dropped, and a decade from that, the "S". The next version will omit all letters and tones altogether for a gutteral "ugh ugh ugh", and finally it will reach the epitome of the nation`s development, that of simple heavy breathing while fondling one`s own genitals.
