‘I believe it will flood’

0

The recent flash floods have ‘inspired’ Adrian Lee to conjure up new lyrics to a familiar song.

I believe it will flood

I used to think the banjir would not come
And rain it helped to clear that awful smog
But now I know the meaning of clogged drains
I’m clinging on the roof with both my arms

Deforestation, there will be landslides
Evacuation, there’s no place to go

[Chorus:]
I believe it can flood
From the rain gushing from the sky
It has been pouring every night and day
Monsoon’s here it’ll flood away
Take work leave, there’s typhoid
I see that water in the Smart Tunnel
I believe it can flood
I believe it can flow
I believe it can jam

See hills are on the verge of sliding down
Sometimes response times they seem so long
Flood’s predictable and yet we’re unprepared
But first I know flood starts because of greed, oh

Flood mitigation, if it can hold it
Contamination, bacteria’s in it

[Chorus]

Hey, believe in D-O-E, oh

If I can’t see cars, there’s rising water (traffic jams)
If I’d just drive through it, there’s no insurance

[Chorus]

Hey, if I just burst my banks
It can flood
It will flood
It can flood, hey
If the rivers burst its banks
It can flood-ood-ood-ood
Hum, flood-flood-flood
