So no one else with a screechy, whiny voice was available?

I enjoyed the Olympic closing ceremonies right up until Canada decided to inflict Neil Young on the world. Again. Anyway, he wasn't too bad this time due to my muting the TV while Neil was "singing". I did manage to find a copy of the song that he meant to sing on Sunday. He must have used his second choice instead. In any event, here are the lyrics to Northern Man:

Northern man better wear your tuke Celine Dion makes us want to puke Northern games had to end at last Now our pucks were sliding fast Northern man

I saw curling
and I saw ice
old Vancouver
was kind of nice.
Northern man
was it
worth the price?
I saw skiin'
and pucks asliding'
Third place? Third place?

Northern man
better wear your tuke
Celine Dion
makes us want to puke
Northern games
had to end at last
Now our pucks
were sliding fast
Northern man

Li'l Crosby,
your hair is golden brown
I've seen your wrist shot
swingin' round
You won the game
and didn't let us down!
I saw skiin'
and pucks asliding'
Third place? Third place?
