Forgotten Merlion - Alvinology

Forgotten Merlion

In conjunction with National Day, I hereby present to everyone, a very interesting short film made by one of my pal, Ghaz.

It’s called, Forgotten Merlion:

Ghaz went around Singapore inviting adults to sing our national anthem, Majulah Singapura. As most of us would have expected it, there were barely anyone who can sing the song in whole. Not even Malays. Not that we are unpatriotic I guess, but more because the last time most adults would have sung it will be a few years back when they were still in Secondary School during morning assembly.

Watch Ghaz’s light-hearted short film to learn how to sing our national anthem correctly AGAIN. Don’t worry, it is not presented in the typical boring National-Education-video format. Have fun.

Oh… and here’s the CORRECT lyrics, taken from Wikipedia:

MAJULAH SINGAPURA

Mari kita rakyat Singapura
Sama-sama menuju bahagia
Cita-cita kita yang mulia
Berjaya Singapura

Marilah kita bersatu
Dengan semangat yang baru
Semua kita berseru
Majulah Singapura
Majulah Singapura

English Translation

Come, fellow Singaporeans
Let us progress towards happiness together
May our noble aspiration bring
Singapore success

Come, let us unite
In a new spirit
Let our voices soar as one
Onward Singapore
Onward Singapore

Chinese Translation

来吧,新加坡人民,
让我们共同向幸福迈进;
我们崇高的理想,
要使新加坡成功。

来吧,让我们以新的精神,
团结在一起;
我们齐声欢呼:
前进吧,新加坡!
前进吧,新加坡!

Tamil Translation

சிங்கப்பூர் மக்கள் நாம்
செல்வொம் மகிழ்வை நோக்கியே
சிங்கப்பூரின் வெற்றிதான்
சிறந்த நம் நாட்டமே

ஒன்றிணைவோம் அனைவரும்
ஓங்கிடும் புத்துணர்வுடன்
முழுங்குவோம் ஒன்றித்தே
முன்னேறட்டும் சிங்கப்பூர்
முன்னேறட்டும் சிங்கப்பூர்
