    Lyrics to The Wave Song:

    Oooooooooooooh woooooooooohh hohoho
    Oooooooooooooh woooooooooohh hohoho

    Blame your mother, blame your father, blame the season, blame the Maker
    See the waters, down in Orchard, Lucky Plaza, basement flooded

    We have a big longkang, our drains should to be Number One
    But when the freak rain come
    In the end we still lan lan

    So we say

    When I eat horfun, I saw the rain come
    I call PUB, they never call me back
    I think they damn slack
    I think they damn slack
    I think they damn slack

    I think they damn

    When I drink Horlick, I saw the rain come
    I call PUB, they never call me back
    My car in void deck
    I can’t find my cat
    My underwear wet

    And there it goes

    Oooooooooooooh woooooooooohh hohoho
    Oooooooooooooh woooooooooohh hohoho

    Say it’s garbage, say it’s blockage, say it’s bad luck, that drain got stuck
    PM say don’t, unrealistic, Singapore can’t, be zero flood

    Time to buy sampan, don’t park in Basement One
    And when the freak rain come
    Why this song so Cheena one?

    So we say

    When I eat horfun, I saw the rain come
    I call PUB, they never call me back
    I think they damn slack
    I think they damn slack
    I think they damn slack

    I think they damn

    When I eat chee cheong fun, I saw the rain come
    I call PUB, they never call me back
    My car in void deck
    I can’t find my cat
    My underwear wet

    And there it goes

    Oooooooooooooh woooooooooohh hohoho

    P.S. To mrbrown, please do your own version of this year’s NDP theme song like what you did to the 2009 NDP theme song (Lekuasimi) with your own lyrics and put it up on this site. Thanks.

  18. Yuhin Says:

    Funny work of the floods in Orchard, I want to see more of ur brilliance siah!!!

  19. Michael Says:

    The name of this song should be “Wavy Flood” - semblance to the original song “Waving Flags” by K’naan

  20. Hearme Says:

    THE RISE OF MR BROWN SHOW! epic la! must have a mtv to go along, pls include the uncle that swim in orchard road =D my colleagues are all rising up their hands waving to the song, haha

  21. JayWalk Says:

    God forbid if they start a new COE category for sampans and then force us to install IUs to insert cashcard when we row through the gantries.

  22. linn Says:

    Great Song !!

  23. Dr Chan Says:

    My favourite line:

    “We have a big longkang, our drains should to be Number One”

  24. Cheryl Says:

    Well said or should i say sung =D
    LOL

    and JayWalk’s comment about COE for sampans!!! HILARIOUS!

    This song should be like the hit song and top the charts… ooo imagine harvey norman and best denki at parkway playing the music video on ALL their huge tv screens instead of the korean girl band song nobody…

    It would be AWESOME!!!
    (ah… one can dream aye? LOL)_

  25. Alex Tan Says:

    Heard this beautifully local flavoured song this morning and it kept ringing in my little head.
    Here’s the chords which sounds 80% close.

    4 chords, strum and mute with palm
    E C#m A B

    Have fun

  26. Poh Meng Says:

    Ok any link to download?

  27. wet & soaked Says:

    it took 30 to 40 years to build drainages to send rain & flood to the sea! last year Marina Barrage reservoir Dam open, does PUB take another 30 to 40 yrs to learn how to operate the Dam for keeping water at safe level? or is it just another world class show piece that has no function? may be thats why swimming lesson is compulsory in school now?

  28. Marcus Says:

    Reposting lyrics, this time it’s slightly better.

    One two three four

    Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh wooooooaaaahh woah-oh-oh-oh-oh
    Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh wooooooaaaahh woah-oh-oh-oh-oh

    Ei, why this song so Cheena one?

    Can add in the following verse?

    when i drink kopi-O
    i saw the big flood
    i go take picture
    i kena police hand-cuff
    i kena hand-cuffed
    i kena hand-cuffed

    yacoob, raymond and hsien loong, serluck, enghen and tuckyew. we’reoff to africa~

  31. irene Says:

    i am now living in a 2nd tier city in china. whenever it rains, the city will be in chaos. i was so proud of the world class drainage system in Singapore and started to tell the locals they should learn from Singapore. little do i know our dear country is in such a terrible state. How sad! i’d better hide myself under the water!

  34. song for LKY Says:

    Nice catchy song with local flavour.
    Wish Mr Brown added lyrics to highlight handcuff incident as pointed out by ‘xien.’

    ps: perhaps Mr Brown and Co can do a video with a homemade dinghy or sampan for the next flood. LOL

  35. Knife Says:

    Hi, I hope you have a nice day! Very good article, well written and very thought out. I am looking forward to reading more of your posts in the future.

    When the corrections have already been made, this
    can increase your credit rating by a number of points. The foundation might turn out in trouble gets hotter gets
    wet for long. Putting a fresh door upon an old fitted
    track could possibly be technically unsuitable because door track is manufactured upon the specification of door weight, thickness, the placement of door opener
    plus the headroom required.
