Parody Song Title:
"Christina Aguilera's Second Try At The Super Bowl Star-Mangled Blather"
Oh-oh, lay, men, with me
Dyed a blonde; rarely bright
As so loudly, I wailed
Get the lines right? Vast reaming
Cause: broad's tripe: spends night: bars
'Fore the Steelers-Pack fight
All those da*n parts I botched:
Such untalented screaming
What a mockery there!
I bombed, cursing this air 
Lame goof; clueless blight
That I flagrantly blare
O hey, don't us stars tangle --
-- Man's words, so brave?
Should be banned: such as me
Send them home; Anthem, save
New personal best! A footnote (and pun) *in the OS title*!
Is he good, or what? (Readers reply in unison: "What!")
Actual OP (Original Poem) title was "Defence Of Fort McHenry", because, um, that's what it was about. ... (Check it out some time!) ... and in 1814, British spellings were still used in the US, especially if you were being held prisoner on a British warship at the time of writing, as Key was. ;)
Shortly after being released by the British, Key gave the poem to his brother-in-law, who set it to the British drinking song, "The Anacreontic Song", also known by its incipit, "To Anacreon in Heaven". (*Never* trust your in-laws! ;) The song first appeared in print on September 17, 1814. Two known copies survive.
(Space limitations in the OS Title box required omitting "The" from TOS title, as some have done anyway, and was unable to close the parentheses while still getting in the title add-on/pun.)
 "air" - not just the stuff breathed, but "a tune or melody"
(And, of course, TT curses AIR with his drivel. *Another* personal best -- three meanings in a three-letter word! ;-D )
