Twenty two years has seen you lead with vision and perseverance
You have turned Malaysia into a developing and rising nation
From a land of rubber tappers, tin miners and colonial servants,
Malaysia Incorporated is now the advent of a new generation

Would we've imagined that from the days of Yap Ah Loy
Malaysians are now being called Mister instead of boy
Surely this land that they called The Golden Chersonese
Has benefited so much from thy following the Japanese

Vision 2020 is truly not a fantasy dreamt in vain
For it promises the entire nation to be free from sorrow and pain
To be able to stand tall amongst the rest even thru strain
There's just so much to look forward to much to gain

Today, you are retiring after two decades of being our leader
Dato Seri Dr.Mahathir Mohamad will be remembered forever
As our true statesman rising above the New World Order
We cherish your struggles and hold you in our hearts so very dear.
