Not so marvelous Marseillaise

Just in case you’re tempted to break out in rousing defiance by singing the Marseillaise on your street corner, best recall what you’re belting out ever so robustly:

Do you hear, in the countryside
The roar of those ferocious soldiers?
They’re coming right into your arms
To cut the throats of your sons, your women!

France’s national anthem will be sung by English as well as French fans at Wembley. What’s the story behind the song?
