TUN MAHATHIR, A GREAT MAN OF THE GENERATION

written by Xu Sizhong

The applause of victory, four times sounded
With each one
Warmed and louder
For Tun Mahathir we cheer
For Malaysia we hold dear

Tun Mahathir, our Prime Minister dear
With wrinkles and silver strands of wisdom
Leaves a legacy
On this fertile land
Countless striving footprints on the sand

The Twin Towers of Kuala Lumpur
The Multimedia Super Corridor
The North-South Highway
Oil palm plantations and coconut trees
Connecting the world
And upholding a new Malaysia all the way

Today the nation is prosperous and harmonious
Each day
With more blessings, self-confidence
And happiness
We sing to wish Tun Mahathir happiness all life long

The green mountains stay, people yet to grow grey
Hand in hand, side by side
For the past glory, we embrace Malaysia
For the future dream, we build Malaysia

Tun Mahathir, our Prime Minister dear
Chases the vision without fear
As the nation in unity sings with cheer
Malaysia, Malaysia, Malaysia

NEW MALAYSIA

Lyrics by: Xu Sizhong

Music by: Voon Wen Haw

Malaysia, Malaysia
Our great and beautiful country
Malaysia, Malaysia
Wherever we go, with you we carry

Malaysia, Malaysia
A country chasing its vision
Malaysia, Malaysia
We follow your pace in motion

For its past glory, we embrace Malaysia
For its future dream, we build Malaysia
With one heart, we sing in cheer
Malaysia, Malaysia, Malaysia.
