You canta sing Spain an­them

New York Post - - NEWS -

MADRID — A com­poser has asked Spain’s par­lia­ment to set words to the coun­try’s lyric­free na­tional an­them.

Madrid mu­si­cian Vic­tor Lago said he sub­mit­ted his lyrics and also be­gan col­lect­ing 500,000 sig­na­tures needed to en­able law­mak­ers to de­bate his pro­posal.

A pre­vi­ous at­tempt to add words flopped in 2008 when they were deemed too po­lit­i­cally charged. Lago said his lyrics are neu­tral and in­spired solely by his love for Spain and Spa­niards.
