the national anthem is god save the queen, but i'd say the national song, for the English at leat is Jerusalem (may seem weird as we are no where near jerusalem but its actually about this green and pleasent land)

Advance Australia Fair is our national anthem. 'Australians all let us rejoice, for we are young and free. with golden soil and wealth for toil our home is girt by sea.....' you get the idea

People have talked of changing it but I think we are stuck with "God Save the Queen"! "Jerusalem" is sort of a national song ('And did those feet in ancient time Walk upon England's mountains green ...') and so is "Rule Britannia" (except we no longer 'rule the waves').

O Canada is our national anthem. I just got my citizenship 2 years ago :) I didn't think I will apply for it, I hate the temperature here, but then again I live and work here so why not

Australia has "Advance Australia Fair" which is ok but I would prefer maybe a word change to Waltzing Matilda, I think it is better music.

I am from India. our National song Vande Mataram, composed by Bankim Chandra Chatterji, was a source of inspiration to the people in their struggle for freedom. It has an equal status with Jan Gan Mana - Our National Anthem. The first political occasion when it was sung was the 1896 session If the Indian National Congress .

My country's national song it's "Inno di Mameli", in english "Mameli's anthem" , I think... It's the national anthem of Italy.The original name was " Canto degli italiani", in english "Italians song" and Goffredo Mameli , a patriot of our Risorgimento, wrote it in 1847. But Italy choosed to get this song like national anthem only in 1946, and it officially became our anthem straight in 2005.
