August 2006 song: One People, One Nation, One Party-State

Here is yet another song I wrote 3 years ago. It is a lot cleaner, surprisingly.

In the tune of our National Day song One People One Nation One Singapore, this is "One People, One Nation, One Party-State"l, written in August 2006:

*cue the 2 minute multi-ethnic orgy of instruments for the intro: Chinese strings, Malay percussions, Indian drums, etc.*

One people! One nation! One party-state!
That's the way that Lee will be
With his "strong" mandate! (66% is strong, dey!)
Every creed and every race
Are observed by the PA's gaze
One people! One nation! One party-state!

We build a nation with Lee's brains,
Put the commies in PAP chains. (that's what they did, WORD!)
They sue Chee Soon Juan again,
Claim he ain't Singaporean. (sia lah bruddurrrrrr!)
Sent him to Changi or
Queenstown for 5 years or more...

One people! One nation! One party-state!
That's the way that Lee will be
With his "strong" mandate!
Every creed and every race
Are observed by the PA's gaze
One people! One nation! One party-state!

And when the time comes for the test,
They gave us a package of some progress...
Then we'll need more polling days,
Stop the state from its fascist ways.
They reach out for public funds,
Give TH (Temasek Holdings) more winning runs!

*repeat chorus*

*cue all the instruments relevant to the major and other token ethnicities, for another 2 minute outro.*
