    Mr Brown’s “White Christmas”

    I’m dreaming of a big bonus (Merry christmas from the Mr Brown Show!)
    Just like civil servants got, you know!
    Ask my big boss to listen
    He said, “No budget this season.
    Our costs all go up long ago!”

    I’m dreaming of a big bonus
    Economy grow, said men in white (said men in white)
    As our GDP Growth growth numbers take flight
    It’s the perfect time for a tax hike.

    I’m dreaming of a big bonus (oooooh-ahhh-oooooh)
    My boss won’t give me 2.2 (no two-point-two!)
    He said he not gahment
    Not even increment
    And if talk some more get big cut too! (get big cut too!)

    I’m dreaming I don’t get retrenchment
    No job, no money go “jiak sai” (let’s go “jiak sai”)
    Better next time don’t ask boss why
    Or else christmas time eat grass and die! (eat grass and die)

  6. Dan Says:

    Apologies, it reads “get pay cut too”, not ‘big cut”.

    Hurhur.. I was too busy laughing to really listen problem.

    No job no money, go jiak sai
    Better next time don’t ask boss why
    Or else Christmas time, eat grass and die.

    we happened to be chatting about our bonus over lunch time and discussing if our co. (private sector) will get even the 13th mth anot.
    and there… ur song came in after lunch, and cracked all of us up.
    But……… made one feel even more miserable. Sighz.

  14. SL Says:

    That’s a good one! Sums up what most Singaporeans has to hope. All the ” Santa Clauses” out there in there traditonal white, this podcast is for you.

  15. Hai~Ren Says:

    Depressing yet funny. Ha, that’s Singaporean life for you.

  16. Jedd the Jedi Says:

    You song well, guys! That’s a great arrangement you sang to! Just needs a few tempo fixes, but I loved the harmonising! Such a beauticul song to describe such a dismal point in our Singaporean lives! Do one to Mery Christmas: We wish you a boig ole’ bonus, we wish you a big ole’ bonus we wish you a big ole’ bonus Civil servants got too!

  17. quantum Says:

    very heartwarming

  18. yiqiang Says:

    Totally hilarious!! Ha.. I’m a civil servant (in the army).. But seriously, the bonus doesn’t really balances up to the all the hard work and hardship we had being put through. But CHEERS! MR. Brown!!
    =)

    Oh my god, this is sooo good!

  22. Geri Says:

    “My boss won’t give me 2.2.” (stanza 3 verse 2)
    “…go jiak sai …eat grass & die” (stanza 4 verses 2 & 4)

    You know,
    for your typical small-time self-employed
    (e.g. hawkers, taxi drivers, freelance creatives…),
    we cannot even think of year end bonus,
    much less 2(.2 months’ worth).

    Working so close to the bottom line,
    the typical experience down here is more like,
    grazing on plants emerging from manure…
    and then keeping on living!

    (…OK, hee hee, just half serious! :-) )
    Happy festive season!
    Count your blessings & treasure them!
