Leading the way to development
Equipped with an ambitious decision,
Eager to create a better Singapore.
Knowledge accompanied by far-sightedness,
Using these tools with conviction
Always doing what was best for all,
Never swayed by populism.
You have created this first world country,
Ensuring peace and equality.
With all due respect,
Thank you very much, Mr Lee Kuan Yew,
The founding father of Singapore.
