Let's Sing it in German!



Somebody on Saipan wants to pass a law dictating how the Commonwealth anthem is sung. I say let's just sing it in the original German.

The whole selection of an old German drinking song as an anthem reminds me of the classic film 'Moon Over Parador,' in which the national anthem of the fictitious nation of Parador is sung to the tune of 'B├ęsame Mucho.'

Oh, yes, I come from a true banana republic.
