A home song

I was in a karaoke room with some friends and I could hear the songs that they belted out with gustos after a few drinks. Hotel California, Bridge Over Trouble Water, My Way, Heartbreak Hotel, Leaving on a Jet Plane, I don't want to talk about it, etc etc. All the all time favourites were foreign and bears no relation to what we are or to home. Instantly many song titles flashed through my mind which will make great home songs for Singaporeans. Songs that we can sign and share with emotions. Let me share some of them here. Money in My Mind More Good Years Let's Move On 45 years and more I punch an MP No charity at home Say Yes to more leeways It's only peanuts Help is on the way Highway to Paradise Twilight in golden years There were many more which I were unable to recall at the moment. I shall try to put some lyrics to these songs if I can find the inspirations some day.

You left out the classic from Mr. Brown:

Don't forget the lyrics!

Downgrade if you can’t

Ten years and no holiday
The day has come to buy me a place
Ten years of waiting
Finally, my dream home, here’s my pay

Downgrade if you can’t
Downgrade if you can’t
What else can you expect from me?

Price’s up, blame it on the economy
My dream, ten years more to go
Get a smaller one, I was told
Shall I live with something less roomy?

Downgrade if you can’t
Downgrade if you can’t
What else can you expect from me?

Saving all my bonuses, I got money
Bought me a car and friends come plenty
Beautiful women, beautiful dreams
Share with me and keep me company

Why can’t I drive on the highway
No, unless you got money
You want comfort and pleasure, you must pay
Or you go with everyone, and save money

Downgrade if you can’t
Downgrade if you can’t
What else can you expect from me?

I punch an MP


Two beers too many, I walked into the community
They helped me along, they know, I’m tipsy
I demanded, in my rowdy ways, I wanted to see the MP
They gave me tea, and waited patiently

I stumbled into the tiny room
Smiling widely, he greeted me
He stretched out his hand and offer it to me
Never would he know, I struck him immediately

I punch the MP
I need no sympathy
He says it’s alright
Don’t worry, be happy

The MP fell after the melee
The men rushed in and came for me
I stood my ground, nothing to fear
I know, they cannot hit me.

The man in blue were everywhere
For they were told, I hit an MP
As a citizen, an old one, they were kind to me
The court set me free, and we parted happily

I punch the MP
I need no sympathy
He says it’s alright
Don’t worry, be happy

I punch an MP


Two beers too many, I turned to the community
Assuring smiles, they knew, I’m tipsy
I demanded, 'I wanted to see the MP'
They showed me to a seat, and waited patiently

I stumbled into the tiny room
Smiling widely, he greeted me
He stretched out his hand and offered it to me
Never would he know, I struck him immediately

I punched the MP
I needed no sympathy
He sais, 'It’s alright,
Don’t worry, be happy'

The men rushed in and came for me
I stood my ground, nothing to fear
I knew, they could not hit me.

The men in blue were everywhere
For they were told, I hit an MP

The court set me free, and we parted happily

I punched the MP
I needed no sympathy
He said, 'It’s alright,
Don’t worry, be happy'
