    Yes, first to comment at last.

    Beautifully composed and sung song. It would be good to include the original song so that we can appreciate your creative edits.

    When u people launching an album? I will support!

    MrBrown to PAP is forever Punk

  2. Cher Says:

    nice harmony guys !
    Me thinks SunHo and the high priest will like it too and may consider engaging you blokes to perform at CHC.

    By the way, singapore’s one and only reliable forecaster would definitely wish to stay forever young.

    Just imagine having a grandfather+son+grandson from the Lee family run Singapore.
    Me thinks it will be the first time in history of mankind.

    LOVELY! WHAT A COOL PRODUCTION.

    Love the modulation in the melody too! Cool lyrics too!

    I think there will be many who do not know this song so it will be nice if you guys can pen down the lyrics just like you did for many of your other creative songs! & you are right! what is there to hold election for? They already won! No need to say lah. The GE is merely wayang.

    Living is Singapore is only good…heee…hee… if you are a gambler….fun from gambling, fun from seeing and driving counselors crazy, fun from making family members go nuts, fun from trying to sneak into the casinos, fun from thinking of ways to beat the system and yet win at the tables, fun from thinking of strategies to borrow from loan sharks & make others pay for your loans…hhhmmm….life in Singapore is kinda fun for gamblers, drivers who love speeding, and for the police! So much excitement….and opppsss….for those with many ‘wives’ or ‘husbands’.

    Mr Brown & gang, THANKS for not migrating. U make living here in Singapore more exciting and interesting! Keep hanging around in Singapore, ok? We need you guys!

  5. Chris Says:

  6. Yuhin Says:

  8. Buzz Says:

    What’s the original song?

  9. Ed Says:

    Love the part about the father & son…

    Well, done ..another solid podcast!

  10. Mr Pink Says:

    Just to add to what JJ Koh says above - I’m in SG now but I have a UK iTunes account. When I click on the subscribe to podcast link, I get a message that your podcast is not available in the UK store. The WTF show is available, though…

    (Though, JJ - you could use an RSS reader to get episodes when they are posted).

  14. Hai~Ren Says:

    Heh. Excellent remake of the classic Alphaville hit. =)

  15. HaHaHa Says:

    The complaining old farts wear white tops and pants, ha ha. They complain that the citizens are not good enough for them!

    “You believed the father, now believe the son”, in future will believe the grandson. Very funny.

  16. alvin HO Says:

  24. mb Says:

    Lyrics are in the mp3 itself. If a kind soul can copy and paste it here, that will be most helpful lol (I am not at my desk now haha)

  25. LeeLovesDynasty Says:

    Without the father, singaporeans will become 3rd world citizens.
    Without the son, your sons & daughters will become construction workers & maids in other countries.

    Right now, singaporeans must support their 2 grandsons into the politics.
    They dynastLee will give singapore a hope and a brighter future.

    Forever Young

    Gahmen say we need to be young to thrive
    Or other countries will eat us alive
    No place for old, only young DNA
    Good enough for our city state
    Leaders tell us we must young-at-heart
    Don’t be a nation of complaining old farts
    Do what you’re told, don’t kaopeh kaobu
    Aim to be obedient

    Everything we do, we must number one
    People go moon, we must aim the sun
    There’s only one party for us to choose
    But can we pay the cover charge?

    Forever young, gahmen say we forever young
    Singapore must aim to live forever, forever, whatever
    Election come, the same old songs will still be sung
    Are they really going to rule forever, forever
    Forever young

    Gahmen say we must be renewed
    Stop being Uncle, try to be a dude
    Don’t be an auntie, try to be a chio bu
    So that ang moh country beo you

    Everything we do, we must number one
    You believed the Father, now believe the Son
    There’s only one party for us to choose
    How can we lose?

    Forever young, gahmen say we forever young
    Singapore must aim to live forever, forever, whatever
    Election come, the same old songs will still be sung
    Are they really going to rule forever, forever

    Forever young, white shirt will never be obiang
    You may never need to vote forever, walkover, all over
    Election come, don’t need to guess, we know who won
    Guess they’re gonna rule forever, forever, forever one.
