A foreign-language Anthem. For Germany.

Sure to go over like a turd in the punchbowl.

But a politician has stoked a debate by calling for an official Turkish translation of the third verse of the song -- the only verse sung on official occasions because the others, including the first one starting "Deutschland, Deutschland Über Alles" and the second one ending "German Women, German Loyalty, German Wine and German Song", are deemed outdated, subject to misinterpretation, and a bit too fervent.
