Homer sings a patriotic song

SimpsonsFilter: help me find this five-second clip of Homer singing a patriotic song.

There was a bit in a Simpsons episode from a few years ago that goes roughly like this: Someone (Marge or Lisa, I think) is describing some sort of American excess--if I remember correctly, it was food-related. In response, Homer tearfully sings a few words from a patriotic American song--something like the national anthem, God Bless America, or America the Beautiful.

Can anyone remember the episode, or at least the song Homer sings?

Are you thinking of "Bart Vs. Australia"?
Ward: Hello. Now, everything is all set for Bart's apology. Mr. Conover will meet you at the parliament house at three p.m. Questions?
Bart: Yeah, do the toilets go backwards in here?
Ward: No. To combat homesickness, we've installed a device that makes them swirl the correct American way.
[he flushes the toilet]
[it swirls one way, then a machine kicks in and makes it swirl the other way]
Homer: [singing] Sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing...[weeps]

"Bart vs. Australia" was re-run on Fox Chicago tonight! Cebailey, you truly have your finger on the pulse of all things Simpson.
