I asked my friend Gotta Google about this.

 

Go to: http://david.national-anthems.net/us.htm

and you will learn about the US national anthem.

 

There is also a link in blue which will take you to a site with all fifty of the state anthems.

 

And, on the left side of the site is a series of links to all of the national anthems of the world (or at least that's what it looks like).

 

The US national anthem has four stanzas.  Most of the time people sing only the first.  The third stanza is hardly even sung because it is very harsh because it was written at a time when the USA was at war with Britain.  It calls for victory and the death of the British.  Because we are now allies we don't sing those words.
