Bilingual country, our northern neighbor. Yet. National anthem, as I heard it: English only.


  1. Sammy's second cousin says:

    Ironic since the original lyrics were in French. There are two versions of the English lyrics, one a translation from the French and the other not.

  2. Pooh says:

    I was wondering about that, too.

  3. Jay says:

    I think I heard a portion of the anthem in french during the closing ceremonies. But NBC in their idiotic Prime Time directive chose to tape delay the start, break at 10:30 PM for a Jerry Seinfeld creation they had spent the Olympics advertising, pause for local news and start again with the closing ceremonies finish at 11:30 PM. So it may not have been french, but snoring bouncing against the back of my head.
