Long Live Midway (JP: ミッドウェー万歳) is the national anthem of the Union of Midway adopted on February 10th, 2010. Before then, Midway had no official national anthem. It's original author is unknown as the song was published to the public domain anonymously. The tune of the song is the same as Preußenlied, a German song, that was composed in 1851 by August Neithardt.

HistoryEdit

Not much is known about the actual composition of the song. It is known that the person who published it intended for it to be in the public domain, and that it was intended to be one of Midway's first patriotic songs made after the Guam War. The song was published on January 22, 2010 onto multiple online music forums. Though initially it didn't get much attention, it was "discovered" by the general population of Midway on February 1st and became extremely popular relatively quickly. As a result the song was officially adopted as the national anthem on February 20, 2010.

LyricsEdit

Japanese Transliteration English translation

海に浮かぶ玉
旗は前に飛ぶ
この豊かな土地
は我らの祖国
我らは一つ
分裂せず




国が呼び、人は泣く
ミッドウェー万歳、万歳

Umi ni ukabu gyoku
Hata ha mae ni tobu
Kono yutaka na tochi
ha warera no sokoku
warera ha hitotsu
bunretsu sezu




Kuni ga yobi, hito ha naku
Middouee banzai, banzai

A jewel floats in the sea
A flag flies before thee
Here stands the prosperous land
Here stands our great fatherland
We stand as one, united
We’ll never be divided




The nation calls, the people cry
Long live Midway, Midway
