National Anthem

I haven't heard the lyrics of the "National Anthem in Spanish" everyone is talking about. But I don't think it is disrespectful simply to sing the lyrics, as written, in another language. I grew up in San Diego saying the Pledge of Allegience to the Flag in Spanish in home period throughout Junior High School (for those who have forgotten: "Prometo fidelidad a la bandera de los Estados Unidos de America, y a la republica que representa, una nacion, bajo Dios, indivisible, con libertad y justicia para todos.") I think it comes off quite well in Spanish, and suspect the Anthem might, too.
