ASL song interpretation rarely follows the words of the song exactly, nor does it necessarily follow the proper grammar rules of either spoken English or ASL. This is an interpretation of the National Anthem.

Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light

Looking  seeing dawn

What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming?

Big big proud all of us celebrate light

Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,

Four big stripes star sparkle through terrible fight/war

O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?

Over trenches watch “wavy classifier”

And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,

Red rocket “hand flash explosions”

Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.

Show through all night flag steady “point to American flag nearby”

Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave

Question marks stripes “wavy classifier”

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Land free America people brave.
