Telok Blangah Song - Our Bicentennial Version

Sang Nila Utama, landed at Telok Blangah

Then came Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of our island

 

Living in Telok Blangah, so rich in history

How I love Telok Blangah, a special place to me

 

Temenggong Abdul Rahman, and Munshi Abdullah

Keppel, Faber, Saint James, how they have made their mark

 

Living in Telok Blangah, so rich in history

How I love Telok Blangah, a special place to me

 

Then came the kampongs, amid the swamps and trees

They made way for the new town, built by HDB

 

Being an open city, welcoming different cultures

With self-determination, we’ll forge a bright new future

 

Children, it’s up to us now, to build on history

Writing our next new chapter, our Singapore story

 

A green and gracious city, caring for the elderly

A fifth tap for our nation, these are our hopes and dreams

 

Children, it’s up to us now, to build on history

Writing our next new chapter, our Singapore story
