SPAIN’S long wait for a vocal national anthem may be drawing to an end.

Víctor-LagoA Madrid composer has written lyrics to accompany the military march which has served as the country’s anthem for 250 years.

Bereft of words to belt out since Franco’s regime, Spaniards have had to put up with a lyricless anthem for 40 years.

But that might be about to change. Victor Lago, 43, has launched a campaign to collect 500,000 signatures needed to present to the lawmakers.

“I think we deserve, at long last, to have a decent anthem that can be sung with pride by everyone the length and breadth of our land,” said Lago.
