O (No) Canada: The best national anthem fails

Nothing can get a crowd charged up like a good national anthem. Nothing can make a crowd crack up like a horrible national anthem.

Having the opportunity to sing the anthem at the start of a sporting event is a huge privilege, but it comes with great responsibility. Some flourish in the limelight, while others crash and burn in a spectacle so horrible that you can’t help but watch.

Uh-O(h) Canada

I need the words
