Happy 50th Birthday, Singapore :-)... with Songs to Teach Our Little FECS...


Hip hip hurray, happy 50th birthday, Singapore. We are together with you from Denmark :-)

We will remember the words from Mr. Tommy Koh, and by God's grace pass down the values to the next generation:

We also remember the late Mr. & Mrs. Lee Kuan Yew and our beloved father, who are dearly missed on this occasion.

Here is a song that we used to sing from my childhood during National Day that I would like to teach it to our Little FECS:

Count on me, Singapore (Lyrics)

We have a vision for tomorrow
Just believe
Just believe
We have a goal for Singapore
We can achieve
We can achieve
You and me, we'll do our part 
Stand together
Heart to heart
We're going to show the world what Singapore can be
We can achieve
We can achieve

There is something down the road that we can strive for
We are told no dream's too bold that we can't try for
There's a spirit in the air 
It's a feeling we all share
We're going to build a better life for you and me
We can achieve
We can achieve

Count on me Singapore
Count on me to give my best and more
You and me, we'll do our part 
Stand together
Heart to heart
We're going to show the world what Singapore can be
We can achieve
We can achieve

Chorus:
Count on me Singapore
Count on me Singapore
Count on me to give my best and more
Count on me Singapore

Together Singapore.
Singapore!

Here is another of our favorite song:
Home (Lyrics)

Whenever I am feeling low 
I look around me and I know 
There's a place that will stay within me 
Wherever I may choose to go 
I will always recall the city 
Know every street and shore 
Sail down the river which brings us life 
Winding through my Singapore 

Chorus: 
This is home truly, where I know I must be 
Where my dreams wait for me, where that river always flows 
This is home surely, as my senses tell me 
This is where I won't be alone, for this is where I know it's home 

When there are troubles to go through 
We'll find a way to start anew 
There is comfort in the knowledge 
That home's about its people too 
So we'll build our dreams together 
Just like we've done before 
Just like the river which brings us life 
There'll always be Singapore 

( Repeat Chorus ) 

For this is where I know it's home 
For this is where I know I'm home

This is a new song for SG50:
Our Singapore (Lyrics)

[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.

[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.

[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.

[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 dream, 
Our Singapore. 
Our Singapore.
