instrumental version


The Anthem of the Kingdom of Lytera is the song Monika, composed by an unknown East German composer, with new lyrics by the Lyteran Government.

The piece was written as a marching song in the 1950s in East Germany, about a panzer unit going off to war but remembering the girl they love - Monika, and how she's waiting for them at home. Considered as a cadidate for the anthem in late 2020, the music was adopted as the Lyteran anthem, with the words changed to fit Lytera itself, personifying it as the girl that everyone comes back to whenever they're away.

The Lyrics were created by the Lyteran Council and signed off by Alex I. The English lyrics can be seen below.

English Lyrics
Our nation wakes up early in the morning
The birds sing a gentle new song
The girls wave out of the window
For the flag that they all serve under
Whilst throughout the year we will be gone
Please wait for me, back in Lytera!
When one asks where I’d rather reside
Lytera, is my reply.
The command “Panzer, vor!” is given,
There is no objection from us,
Our weapons protect the nation
Every goal is within our reach.
Whilst throughout the year we will be gone
Please wait for me, back in Lytera!
When one asks where I’d rather reside
Lytera,I will reply.
In the evening we return to our friends
The sun sinks to show the night sky.
Whilst we laugh and we travel the world
There’s only one place where I’d die
Whilst throughout the year we will be gone
Please wait for me, back in Lytera!
When one asks where we’d rather reside
Lytera, We all reply.

Nasha natsiya prosypayetsya rano utrom
Ptitsy poyut nezhnuyu novuyu pesnyu
Devochki mashut iz okna
Dlya flaga, pod kotorym vse oni sluzhat
Our nation wakes up early in the morning
The birds sing a tender new song
Girls waving from the window

Kogda sprashivayut, gde ya by predpochel zhit'
Litera, eto moy otvet.
