How many of you know your national anthem by memory?

Title says it all! I know the first two verses of "O Canada" and am currently memorizing the rest. I know it seems funny, being Canadian, but my friend and I have the first verse of "The Star-Spangled Banner" memorized too. So how many of you have your own national anthem memorized and if so, do you have any other countries anthems memorized?

I think Americans know their anthem more than Canadians do theirs! At least that is what I've observed.

I don't think any Aussies know any more than the first verse :]

I'm American and I know mine by heart. We hear it pretty often. Horse shows, major sport games, etc. all play the national anthem at the beginning.

Being born in America I immediately learned and memorized "The Star Spangled Banner". In elementary school we sang it all the time.

About three years ago when I was up in Toronto, Canada to participate in the Santa Clause Parade. I was staying in a hotel and they had a pamphlet with the lyrics to "O Canada". I quickly memorized it and sang it over and over again on the way home.

Thats funny Painted Hooves!! It is interesting to learn other countries anthems! I don't know the French for "O Canada" though.

I have the words to mine memorized and I also can play it on my saxaphone from memory.
