"Never never never give up!"



Never Never Never Give Up!, labeled Never Give Up officially, is the national anthem of Shops Island. It was written by a citizen and political activist named Lee Sencit, who submitted it to the government, and it became the national anthem.


History[edit]

After the February 2012 revolutions that threw Ben out of office were over, and Chill57181 was elected president, Shops was in desperate need of a new anthem. The government opened up submissions for a new national anthem, with a few requirements, such as the fact that it shouldn't glorify a certain aspect of Shops, or a certain person. Not many submissions were sent in, and most of them didn't meet standards or the given requirements. However, and penguin name Lee Sencit from Penguin City entered a submission called "Oh bless you Shops Island". The lyrics and the music was particularly striking, but they thought the title was underwhelming. In the song there was a quote at the end of a few verses which said "Never never never give up". So, the government chose that anthem under the condition that it would be renamed "Never never never give up!" It is still Shops' anthem to this day.

Lyrics[edit]



(Opening Tune)


Never


Never


Never


Give up!


Never


Never


Never


Give up!


(Pause)


We will


Stand tall


Oh bless


Our Shops.


We will fight


We will stand


We will die


To protect


Our land!


We may not


Be the best


But we


Don't need


Strength


To beat


The rest!


Oh bless


Our Shopper Land!


(Pause)


Live


Strong and free


We will stand


Forever, thee


We live


Never fail


Never die


Never lose


and Never give up!

Reception[edit]

Never never never give up! (and its respective variations) is considered one of the Asiapelago's best national anthems; inspiring and plain, without need for major orchestras to perform it. It's been critically acclaimed for its uniqueness in contrast of the rest of the Asiapelago, of which most nations had older-style anthems. Never never never give up! has been noted as an example of a capitalist anthem, mixed with quite a bit of nationalism.
