When Did I Last Know the Lyrics of 'O Canada'

My rough guess is 1970, when I left the country effectively for a decade abroad. And the lyrics I knew were the 1970 ones.
Since then, someone keeps changing them. It seems to me that if your national anthem can change at this rate, there is something confused about one's country.
Of course it is such an UTTERLY AWFUL anthem that just singing humm-humm through the whole thing could not be worse.
Who really cares? I never sing it anyway.

And let's just acknowledge that whoever wrote it stole the opening theme from the ABC Olympics theme song.
