New Swiss Anthem

The Swiss are looking for new lyrics to the anthem, something more informative and fitting for the new age.

So I thought we could have some fun making up lyrics-must be safe for work. No prizes I'm afraid, unless of course you want to enter it.

Re: New Swiss Anthem

Oops! I did do quick search, and didn't spot it, but if anyone decides to combine the threads that's fine with me.

I'm sure someone on this forum can do better than The Independent one.
Here's the present one

Re: New Swiss Anthem

I feel the Independent's lyrics are spot on, and up to date! http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-en...m-8764766.html

It seems a potential new candidate for the anthem has been chosen....

Though this is apparently only the end of the unofficial part of the process ... now the official process starts.

more info on the BBC website
