Following the taxi fare hike yesterday… my friend, Lai Chow, was so inspired that she remade a Justin Timberlake classic with reworked lyrics to help Singaporeans remember their taxi fares.

Sing along!

The lyrics are really corny lor! I never knew Lai Chow is so lame. She always gave me the impression of being more of a pretty ice queen, hahaha.

TaxiBack (sung to the tune of ‘SexyBack’)

VERSE 1
I’m taking taxi back
But first I might just get a heart attack
Peak period charge’s now 35%
Wait a minute, hang on a sec

Take ’em to the rich

BRIDGE
CBD
Surcharge is now
three dollars you know
I’ll let you scold me if (I) miscalculate
It’s just that no one makes me feel this way
You know my maths ain’t that good

Take ’em to the chorus

CHORUS
Come here cab
Go ahead, be gone with it
Test my maths
Go ahead, be gone with it
Flag down rate
Go ahead, be gone with it
It’s now 2.80
Go ahead, be gone with it
Look at those fees
Go ahead, be gone with it
You make me frown
Go ahead, be gone with it
Go ahead, zao!
Go ahead, be gone with it
And get your taxi, go
Go ahead, be gone with it

Take your taxi, go!
Go ahead, be gone with it
(countless times)

VERSE 2
I’m taking taxi back
But first I might just get a heart attack
It’s 11pm and I can’t get a cab
Late night surcharge’s 50% right after midnight

Just one hour’s wait

BRIDGE
The meter jumps
by 20 cents
any minute now
I’ll let you scold me if (I) miscalculate
It’s just that no one makes me feel this ‘sway’

(REPEAT CHORUS)

VERSE 3
I’m taking taxi back
It’s 11pm and I can’t get a cab
Thank goodness for late night surcharge
Now I can hop on right after 12

Take ’em to the chorus

(REPEAT CHORUS)
