Right now, we're going to perform the Canadian national anthem and I swear to god I'm gonna screw the words up.

Never made it as a wise man
Couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing
Tired of living like a blind man
I'm sick of sight without a sense of feelin
And this is how you remind me
Of what I really am
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am

It's not like you to say sorry
We're not waiting on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For giving you a heart worth breakin'
And I've been wrong, I've been down
To the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream "Are we having fun yet?"

Yet?, Yet?, Yet?, no no
Yet?, Yet?, Yet?, no no

Couldn't cut it as a wisme man
I said I hate you and I swear I still do
It must have been so bad
Cause livin' with me must have damn near killed you

It's not like you to say sorry
We're not waiting on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For giving you a heart worth breakin'
And I've been wrong, I've been down
To the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream "Are we having fun yet?"

Yet?, Yet?, Yet?, no no
Yet?, Yet?, Yet?, no no
Yet?, Yet?, Yet?, no no
Yet?, Yet?, Yet?

Never made is as a wise man
I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing
I'm sick of sight without a sense of feelin
And this is how you remind me
Of what I really am
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am

It's not like you to say sorry
We're not waiting on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For giving you a heart worth breakin'!!!!!

And I've been wrong, I've been down
To the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream "Are we having fun yet?"

Yet?, Yet?, Yet?, no no
"Are we having fun yet?"
Yet?, Yet?, Yet?, no no
"Are we having fun yet?"
Yet?, Yet?, Yet?, Yet?, Yet?, Yet?, Yet?, Yet?,

Alright!

    General Commentthey actually covered a fucking nickleback song? This can only mean that nickleback>sum 41 and that is pretty sad. Behold: This is what happens when a shit band covers a shit song by another shit band.

    General CommentHow does making a cover of a band make you worse than them? That makes no sense. Some crap ass bands can write wondeful songs (one hit wonders are an example of this, such as this song) but some songs arn't played alot anymore, but were big hits, or they wern't noticed at all in their time, and a popular artist has to bring it out, some songs _need_ to be covered to be good. (Tainted love, soft cell cover)

    General Commenti like nicklebakcs version better it had more depth and meaning, they werent just singing it , they had a reason. Sum 41s version is lets just sign this song and get it over with. there was nothing wrong with nicklebacks verion and bands shouls write their own songs unless thy redo a really really old song which needs to be brought back to life but this song was already good and has way more like then when sum sings it. Dont get me wrong i love Sum but still i think nickleback deserves the props on this song. Sum kinda ruined it
