Track Name: Masia One ft. Iratio - Singapura ft. Iratio (raw mix)
Singapura, Oh Singapura
Sunny island in the sea
Singapura, Oh Singapura
Pretty flowers here for you and me

Now the love that we had was a feeling we shared for everybody
But the money it came and took all vibration away
Said that love that we had was a feeling we shared for everybody
But the money it came and took all vibration away
Oh Singapura

Singapura, Oh Singapura
Sunny island in the sea
Singapura, Oh Singapura
Pretty flowers here for you and me

Singapura mi a cruise up on the town
Singapura mi a chat one pon di sound
Dem a try, but they can't find the island now, so we make them feel irie
Yeah

Singapura we go mekan in the town
Singapura got the taste from all around
Iratio in the place, get big and loud
Cause we make them feel irie

Singapura, Oh Singapura
Sunny island in the sea
Singapura, Oh Singapura
Pretty flowers here for you and me
Track Name: Masia One & The Irietones - Smile Singapura
Ooo I walk the road this morning, there was love at first sight
Ooo I walk the road this morning, there was beauty to my eyes
They ask me where I'm from I tell them in the tropics
A Chiney Gyal that come and speak ebonics
They wanna ask me baby what's your name, I said it was Singapura.

Smile oh smile, smile for Singapura
Baby just smile, oh smile
Smile for Singapura
Whenever you cry, here am I
Here for Singapura
Dry your eyes, oh smile, Smile for Singapura

Singapura have a rich history,
Kampung village with the sweetest gifts
Beautiful sunset and the evening breeze
Satay grilling and it smell so sweet.
But they tell me they was tired, tired of the exploits and the liars
We give them blood we give them sweat
we give them work we give them love
All we get was abuse in return, tell you now;

Don't you worry yourself aunty
Don't you worry yourself uncle
Don't you worry yourself adi
One thing you have to do for me

Smile oh smile, smile for Singapura
Baby just smile, oh smile
Smile for Singapura
Whenever you cry, here am I
Here for Singapura
Dry your eyes, oh smile, Smile for Singapura

Are you ready? Singapura rock me steady
Are you ready ready? Singapura rock me steady
Born on the island where the ocean meets the shore
Pasir Ris, Clementi down to Bedok Reservoir
Tiong Baru for some coffee and the vintage type decor
Arab street the homies painting wild style on the walls
Orchard atas living, Esplanade for curtain calls
Tampines, Marina Bay, Queensway and so much more

Are you ready? Singapura rock me steady
Are you ready ready? Singapura rock me steady (repeat)
Track Name: Local Girl (Radio Edit)
Back on the island riding high, it was a South East Asian Lullaby
I was excited we could vibe, but you so 2-faced get so Gemini
The moment that I step out side, you want to criticize me how I fly,
The ceiling really ain’t that high, I hit this glass I see right through the lies

What you really want to watch me for?
Scared I’m gonna take your spot and grow?
If you really wanna start a war
You better have your rifle locked and loaded

Pre-Chorus
I’m just a local girl, silly me lost
But I’m pretty sure I know where I stand
I’m just a local girl, paying the cost
That my eyes are small, skin is too tanned

Whoa I’m not afraid that you won’t love me
No I’ll never trade all my pride for your money, now
You just wanna play all these games on the runny
Acting kinda strange, I ain’t paid by you dummy, no

Chorus
Local Girls, Local Boys
Get yo’ money! (Gotta get yo’ dough X2)
Local Boys, Local Girls
Take your money! (Gotta take that dough X2)
Local Girls, Local Boys
Get yo’ money! (Gotta get yo’ dough X2)
Make your choice, Local noise,
Take back your money! Take back your money!
(Gimme Gimme Gimme!)

Dem nah reddi for a gyal like this,
Got chat like a man so they call me a bish
I’m giddy when I rock like this, cause I know what I got, likkle fox trot ish
Not down for melo-drama, run to you mama, you wet your bed
I hit em wit that 1,2 banger, Sing sing slang’ yah, bad gyal twist
No you don’t like me, I’m just working on my hustle tho
Don’t pay my rent, you still a Busta baby, Flip Mode.
So why you fight me when you working for the man, Hoe?
Don't you incite me, I’m a riot, snitch you 5-0 (Po Po!)
Get it, git it, Hun’red dolla bill it, money in the bank and steak on the skillet
Got no one to thank but your yes men feel it,
Baby took your fans when my rap shit hit it.
[English accent] Would I get more money if I rapped like this?
Am I real exotic when I’m blonde & rich
Fake it for a minute til you cut that cheque [end]
Tolong Sekit, Sotong Squid!

Chorus
Local Girls, Local Boys
Get yo’ money! (Gotta get yo’ dough X2)
Local Boys, Local Girls
Take your money! (Gotta take that dough X2)

Local Girls, Local Boys
Get yo’ money! (Gotta get yo’ dough X2)
Make your choice, Local noise,
Take back your money! Take back your money!
(Gimme Gimme Gimme)

So many reasons I should run and hide,
but I know I got work to do (work work)
And when I do the things I like, you watch me,
carbon copy with your crew (Who’s your crew?)
Do you boo, I don’t really watch no face like you
I don’t really talk, I’m ace and cool
I don’t mean to block your jock ride too,
I just tun up the bass and cruise

Pre-Chorus
I’m just a local girl, silly me lost
But I’m pretty sure I know where I stand
I’m just a local girl, paying the cost
That my eyes are small, skin is too tanned

Whoa I’m not afraid that you won’t love me
No I’ll never trade all my pride for your money, now
You just wanna play all these games on the runny
Acting kinda strange, I ain’t paid by you dummy, no

[Chorus]

Outro
Track Name: Masia One ft. Isis Salam, Lady E & DJ SARASA - Pulau
CHORUS (Isis)
I wanna go to a place where sand is soft as the breeze
I wanna blow into the air, the sweetest smelling trees
And when the plane lands on the island
I wanna see everybody smiling
Cause they all been waiting just to see me.

(Verse 1 Masia One)
Back in the day
In the day, a teenager
Bold. Off the coast where the sunshine grows
They stuck on escalades
How about my people live, still get paid, Yo!
So far, turn a page
Public Enemy tape – bootleg breaks.
Watching Ricki Lake on the school vacate
Private in the art, stead’ of give and take
Young girls, prissy hoes
Shook it to the left, I did my thing you know.
Doing what I can to refine the prose
Do it with a tan, and some painted toes
Yardie in Japan, So Def? Who knows.
Rockin’ for a grand? Got that Hustle and flow.
Kick it with my man, back in yard
In close, country and some land, chill in Cocomo
Just coast.

CHORUS

(Verse 2 Masia One)
New day, great escapes
Rock it like I’m Janet on an escapade
Yo, front line, Straits in time
No matter what it takes, Lion City coastlines.
Fiddy for a ditty, just battle boast lines
Missy, what a pity, TV and toast time.
Don’t break no broke dimes.
They pinch the pockets, poke mine
I think the phone line,
All things glitter ain’t gold, the Po, the bovine
Farming with a see, a ghost in gold mines.
I miss my bor, but most times, always on the go, it’s coast to coast time.
Peter in the tweeters, 12” speakers,
More fiah! Talk of the town, a born leader.
Trench town heaters, beaters
Sunday dressing for church, 
I search that zoo keeper.
Leader of the South East stand up, let me see your hands up
Land ho! Butter soft flow like leather
Wanna change the times like the weather
I dream Mohammad Ali, I rock better, B
Beh bak gau ne laki
Back home I’m chili padi cause I’m money!
Bounce.


CHORUS

Verse 3 (Masia One)
Oceana, Carribbana,
Puapa New Guinea, Osaka men are fine
Soloman Island wine,
St Lucia, Guam, Pulau, Maldives
North Mariana, Guyana shine
Hatian breaks, Aristide in time.
Micronesia, Indonesia, Tioman Isle and my Polynesians
Yes Samoa, yes St Vincent
Mountserrat & Belize just listen (Oh!)
Trini and Tobago know, gun peppa sauce and a double to go
Two’s for the money when One’s on the flow
I’m out of T.O. when it’s 40 below
Fiji, Grenedian
Montreal Canadian
Thailand, Cambodian
All my soul aquarians
Rock a door knock like Dominica
Give a shout out to my Phillipinas
I’m a wyle out in Ipanema
Love Jamrock, cause their walk is meaner
Scenester, keener, microphone fiener
Singapore girl and still that born leader.

LADY E
Pulau yang biru indahnya suasana (Ay ay ay)
Ku lihat air mengalir dengan tenangnya (Ay ay ay)

Walau di mana ku berada
kan ku simpan kenangan ini
takkan ku lupakan  pemandangan di pulau bani
kan ku sematkan di dalam hati
Masia dan Lady E di sini kita menanti

BRIDGE 1
I’ve been down, too long
I gotta get away, I gotta get away
And I’m hoping in the writing of this song,
I find someway, to escape

CHORUS

BRIDGE 2
Welcome to your peace of mind
Sorry that it took so long to find
But now that you’re here, I hope all that your cares
You’ll leave behind
