My tribute to the hosts

  1. Allons enfants de la patrie,
    Le jour de gloire est arrivé !
    Contre nous de la tyrannie
    L'étendard sanglant est levé ! (repeat)
    Entendez-vous dans les campagnes,
    Mugir ces féroces soldats ?
    Ils viennent jusque dans nos bras
    Égorger nos fils, nos compagnes !





    Refrain


    Aux armes, citoyens !
    Formez vos bataillons !
    Marchons ! Marchons !
    Qu'un sang impur
    Abreuve nos sillons !

    Amour sacré de la patrie,
    Conduis, soutiens nos bras vengeurs !
    Liberté, Liberté chérie,
    Combats avec tes défenseurs ! (repeat)
    Sous nos drapeaux, que la victoire
    Accoure à tes mâles accents !
    Que tes ennemis expirants
    Voient ton triomphe et notre gloire !





    Refrain




    Nous entrerons dans la carrière
    Quand nos aînés n'y seront plus ;
    Nous y trouverons leur poussière
    Et la trace de leurs vertus. (repeat)
    Bien moins jaloux de leur survivre
    Que de partager leur cercueil,
    Nous aurons le sublime orgueil
    De les venger ou de les suivre !





    Refrain


    ==============

    <div align="left">Let's go children of the fatherland,
    The day of glory has arrived!
    Against us tyranny's
    Bloody flag is raised! (repeat)
    In the countryside, do you hear
    The roaring of these fierce soldiers?
    They come right to our arms
    To slit the throats of our sons, our friends!
    </div>
    <div align="left">
    </div>
    <div align="left">Refrain</div>

    Grab your weapons, citizens!
    Form your batallions!
    Let us march! Let us march!
    May impure blood
    Water our fields!

    <div align="left">Sacred love of France,
    Lead, support our avenging arms!
    Liberty, beloved Liberty,
    Fight with your defenders! (repeat)
    Under our flags, let victory
    Hasten to your manly tones!
    May your dying enemies
    See your triumph and our glory!
    </div>
    <div align="left">
    </div>
    <div align="left">Refrain</div>
    <div align="left">
    </div>
    <div align="left">We will enter the pit
    When our elders are no longer there;
    There, we will find their dust
    And the traces of their virtues. (repeat)
    Much less eager to outlive them
    Than to share their casket,
    We will have the sublime pride
    Of avenging them or following them!
    </div>
    <div align="left">
    </div>
    <div align="left">Refrain</div>
    <div align="left">
    Gutted for them, the best side defintely lost on Saturday but that's sport sometimes. They've hosted a brilliant world cup so hats off to them.
    </div>
