Allons, enfants de la Patrie,
Le jour de gloire est arrivé !
Contre nous de la tyrannie
L'étendard sanglant est levé, (bis)
Entendez-vous dans les campagnes
Mugir ces féroces soldats ?
Ils viennent jusque dans vos bras
Égorger vos fils, vos compagnes !
The opening line of La Marseillaise.
Against us the tyrants are raising their bloody standards! They're coming to slit the throats of your friends and sons!
So what the hell are we going to do? The refrain says it all.
Aux armes, citoyens,
Formez vos bataillons,
Marchons, marchons !
Qu'un sang impur
Abreuve nos sillons !
To arms citizens! Form batallions and march. Let's water our fields with their filthy blood!
Now, that, is a national anthem. No weak sauce crap about seeing a flag. We are here to cut throats!
With that in mind, the USA plays France in Olympic basketball today. I do not actually see the French winning this as the squad is a bit lackluster and have had as many miscues as the US (including a loss to Japan), but who knows.
Allez les bleus!
