December 2006 song: We Can Work It Out

The following song should be sung by a cabinet minister, because I do not think the hip-hop oriented P65s will do it justice. The song best encapsulates the PAP government rhetoric.

Disclaimer: The songs were cruder and had some obscene language and slangs. They are not out to offend. By publishing them, I have no intention to offend. By the way, the references to sodomy are metaphorical, not literal. Today, I shall provide an example of a parody song which some people might find offensive.

In the tune of The Beatle's We Can Work It Out, written in December 2006:

Try to see it my way
Do i have to keep on talking till i can't go on
While you see it your way
You run the risk of being sued by Goh Chok Tong
We can work it out
We can work it out

Think of what you're saying
You can get it wrong and still you think it's all right
Think of what i'm saying
A defamation suit will tuck you in for tonight
We can work it out
We can work it out

Life is very short, and there's no time
For democracy and transparency
I have always thought of economic benefits
Over all the social costs

Try to see it my way
Only time will tell if i am right or you are wrong
While you see it your way
Your stinking flat will not be upgraded by Hsien Loong
We can work it out
We can work it out

Life is very short, and there's no time
For opposition, my friend
You should know by now, they live in slime
We'll gerrymander again!

Think of what you're saying
You can get it wrong and still you think it's all right
Think of what i'm saying
Wanna be a Doctor Chee in jail for 35 long nights?
We can work it out
We can work it out
