Please don't take our national anthem as a representation of how we Brazilian people speak - it's full of metaphors and hyperbatons, some teachers even claiming that it's one of the hardest to study Portuguese texts ever. It's beautiful, though, I must agree with it.

PS: This reminded me that like 10 years ago I burned a CD with audio files of most national anthems available Tongue smile

I like that the Sri Lankan anthem is on here, I think it's beautiful. (but I like the Tamil version a bit better)

Most people joke about the Australian anthem because it contains the word "girt," and it gets made fun of quite a bit by New Zealanders and people from the UK.

I like the tamil version too!

And what does girt mean in Australia?

I'm learning Tamil so I'm biased. Wink smile

the line is "Our home is girt by sea," girt means surrounded. It's just a funny-sounding word.
