Tony Bennett messed up the lyrics to “God Bless America” during Game 3 of the National League Division Series between the Washington Nationals and San Francisco Giants on Monday.

Of course, Bennett is also an 88-year-old American icon and World War II veteran, so maybe he deserves a little slack — especially since the flub was kind of amazing.

The actual line is, “To the oceans, white with foam.”

Bennett sang, “To the ocean, bright with gold.”

(And here we thought Lady Gaga was the unpredictable wild card in that collaborative duo.)

Regardless, we think it has its own certain majesty.

In keeping with baseball traditions, Bennett also spat out gum, on television, before his performance.
