Lyrics[change | change source]
The national anthem has went through many changes ever since the 1940's. Though there are two verses, the first verse is usually only sung as the anthem. Recently, the Vietnam Center for Music Copyright stated that they will "collect royalty" from the song, meaning that it would be under copyright.
