Anacreon Zindabad!

George Bush is upset about Nuestro Himno, a Spanish language version of the Star Spangled Banner (produced by Adam Kidron, the new version can easily be found on the web - including an extract on this eye-poppingly angry right wing site)

Mr Bush is right. In the interests of purity and tradition it's time to go back to the true source, the glittering fountain... which is: To Anacreon in Heaven, a slightly smutty eighteenth century English drinking song (a nice audio version here, towards the bottom of the page).
