Most Singaporeans would be familiar with “Count On Me, Singapore”. I bet once you read this, you’ll have hummed to the melody because National Day Parade songs of the past seem just so much better and catchy. First introduced in 1986, it is written by Hugh Harrison, a Canadian who surprisingly wrote it over a weekend.
Now that SG50 is over, we found the funny version of “Count One Me, Singapore”—so funny, it’s a sin not to share with others.
Here’s the lyrics, because it’s just too damn funny.
What is your vision for tomorrow?
Don’t disturb me
Go ask Siti
We need to think of Singapore
it’s over soon, SG50
I think we’ll be so happy
Got robots to cook briyani
So we can all spend time with our family
What do you think, Muthusamy
I think my vision for tomorrow
We will be steady
I think the people of tomorrow
Not just steady
Will we have enough money
Will my son have more babies
Our future holds so many possibilities
It’s up to us
What do we see
Will we still be kiasi
Will there still be HDB
The future is in our hands don’t you see
So don’t sit there and drink kopi
Together Singapore, Singapore
Together Singapore, Singapore!
And for your info, here’s the original “Count On Me, Singapore”:
