East and West

East is East, and West is West
We’ve heard this all before
I also used to think the same
Until I came to Singapore

The splendor of Marina Bay
The quiet of Hougang
East and West live side by side
Like day and night, like yin and yang

Hundreds shades of green around
Make you so alive
The sun is bright, the sea is near
Just go, and swim, and dive

The fruit are sweet, and so are people
They match the city well
And if you catch the sunrise, birds
Will ring the morning bell

I am happy anywhere I go
In all the lands I roam
But somehow only here found
My soul and second home
