MERDEKA! MERDEKA! MERDEKA!
 
 
Thirty-first of August ,the flags above
 Malaysia wave , all colourful and gay.
A day to remember our  Independence,
a day to celebrate the memorial day !
We stand as  the National Anthem is played;
a sign of our respect and patriotism.
It's followed by  speeches of the ministers.
Later , we witness parades of people of
all walks of life , dressed  in various costumes,
carrying  banners, slogans  all neat and  gay.
The trump , trump of their footsteps can be heard
through-out the stadium.  In neat files they march on
and on  to victory ,  harmony and peace !
Then come  the beautiful floods , gaily adorn.
Some young girls, all smiles,  wave to the crowds.
It's truly a pretty  sight to behold.
The scouts band play the lively local songs,
make you want to dance or hum along.
The police band and  the army troops' march,
arouse in us the awesome feeling , that
ours is  a nation , strong , secure and safe.
May Malaysia  see  many happy years to come !
The annual  celebrations end with three cheers,
 MERDAKA! MERDEKA ! MERDEKA!
