    Default Oh, Canada

    Apparently, we don't know our National Anthem anymore!

    OK, no peeking, before you open the link see if you can sing it in your head (or out loud!).

    Do you guys know the words? Know the melody accurately? I'm pretty sure I'd butcher any melody, but the words I've got.

    those words i know.
    and sadly, due to my sd, all the words to justin beiber's “one less lonely girl“ i think she said he sings that line 22 times in the song.

    I know it.

    The version they play in my son's school is much more upbeat and much more modern than the version I sang in elementary school.

    I'm fairly certain I got the words down pat, I can't carry a tune though so the melody might be slightly off
    Your life is a result of the choices you make, if you don't like your life it's time to start making better choices.

    haha well I only pointed it out since the thread was based on the accuracy of the song...

    I know it perfectly in english- would need a good refresher for the french part, since I haven't sung that since like 5th grade.
    DH THINKS he knows it, but he says “in all HIS“ when it's actually “in all THY“ and he doesn't know a lick of the french version.
    and I'm the american

    I know it. DS (4) sings along to it at hockey games and such and has started to randomly sing it during the day and is working on teaching his brother (3). They are so proud when they sing it together. I want to get it on tape, but they won't sing if I turn on the camera so I'm working on hiding it.
