OUR SINGAPORE

Music and lyrics by Dick Lee

Verse 1:

It isn't easy building something out of nothing

Especially when the road ahead's a rocky one

But if we gather all our courage and conviction

And hold our dream up high

The challenge will be won

Chorus:

So now we look around us and we see

A nation built with love by you and me

A land to treasure right down to the core

Our home, our heart, our Singapore

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Our home, our heart, our Singapore

Verse 2:

Through many years gone by, we've moved ahead together

We've built a brave new world where we could shine and grow

And now we only have to look towards tomorrow

To carry on the dream as far as it will go

Bridge:

And amazing as it seems

It all started with a dream

And our dreaming isn't done

'Cause the best is yet to come
