Dear Ann Landers

The following was taken from the Aug 20, 1998 Ann Landers Column.

Dear Ann Landers,In one of your recent columns, a reader complained about the lack of respect for the [american] national anthem. He said some singers put their own interpretation to the song and many people don't even know the words. It reminded me of how we Canadian boys use to sing our varition years ago, making fun of the Yanks. It went like this:

Oh, say, can they singFrom the start to the endWhat so proudly they stand forWhen the orchestra plays it.How the whole congregationIn voices that blendStrike up a grand tuneAnd then torture and slay it.Hark, how they shoutWhen they're first starting outBut the rocket's red glareLeaves them floundering 'bout.'Tis the Star-Spangled BannerThey're trying to singBut they don't know the wordsOf the silly damned thing!
