Lovin' My Country Day!

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

From far and wide
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

and now in francais,

Ô Canada!

Terre de nos aïeux,
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!
Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,
Il sait porter la croix!
Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brillants exploits.
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

Okay, so imagine me holding a beer, singing...er... badly singing LOUDLY --
(kinda like how Bob & Doug McKenzie might, but not nearly so awful!)

However...that is NOT how it is supposed to sound!

Try something more like this:

Happy Canada Day!

Coming from south of your border to wish you Happy Canada Day. You truly do have a beautiful anthem. During the Olympics, I was quite jealous as I watched your countrymen and women singing together so proudly. So enjoy your day and the party!
