the mrbrown show (video): TalkingCock in Parliament, Hossan Leong

Hossan Leong held its first spoken word “live” event, TalkingCock in Parliament: We, the Citizens, at Old Parliament House on Thursday, 24 August 2006.

    We Live In Singapura

    Sang Nila, Utama
    Saw a lion, alamak
    Name the village Singapura, then run very far

    Years later, ang mor came
    Stamford Raffles was his name
    Posed for statues very nice, we kenna colonize


    Singapura very strong
    Big guns all, pointing wrong
    Japanese, came on bikes, invade us from our backside

    War is over, ang mor back
    Singaporeans no respect
    Commies come, make a fuss, Singapore independance!

    I live in Singapura
    It’s not perfect living
    But at least it’s interesting
    I live in Singapura
    Though it’s kind of crazy
    We win other country

    David Marshall, Lim Yew Hock
    National Anthem starts to rock
    Yusof Ishak the big man, guess who’s PM?

    Malaysia say, come join me
    Two of us be same country
    Then not happy, Then make PM cry

    PM Lee lead country
    Build jurong and HDB
    Made the country clean and green, opposition cannot win

    JB Jeya no more funds,
    Chee Soon Juan won’t eat his buns
    Lim How Doong, what a goon, ‘Don’t talk cock’ in parliament

    I live in Singapura
    It’s not perfect living
    But at least it’s interesting
    I live in Singapura
    Though its kind of crazy
    We win other country

    Very thanks to the person who insert the lyrics into the video…

    Fans of Hossan Leong might like to catch him in action at an IndigNation (Singapore’s gay pride season) event I recorded on video called “Be who you want to be - the great Singapore makeover”:

  13. 望み - What is that you desire? » We Didn’t Start the Fire Says:

    […] The song used in Hossen Leong’s segment for TalkingCock in Parliament. “We Didn’t Start the Fire” is a song by Billy Joel which chronicles 120 well-known events, people, things, and places widely noted during his lifetime, from 1949 to 1989, when the song was released on his album Storm Front. Joel explained that he wrote this song due to his interest in history; he commented that he would have wanted to be a history teacher had he not become a rock and roll singer. Unlike most of Joel’s songs, here, the lyrics were written before the melody, owing to the song’s somewhat unusual style. Nevertheless, the song was a huge commercial success and provided Billy Joel with his third Billboard #1 hit. […]
