I just got this great WMA of a NS song! For those of you not from Singapore, NS is the National Service all able bodied men (and those also not so man, but at least born a boy) must go through in Singapore. We spend 2 years (must shorten only after I ORD right?) serving our country either in the military, police force, or civil defense.

or, Lim Peh, Ah Kow, Ah Beng.

Anyway, click the below link for the song, and enjoy this great funny NS song!(Will help if you understand hokkien as well)

click HERE to download song.

PS. Sorry, no time to convert to MP3, will do so later.

The quality is very bad (both bit rate and encoding artefacts).

My attempt at translation... heard that song b4. I don't know a lot of terms, pls help!

六月二十三是坏日子
也是小弟的入兵时
七早八早坐TAXI
九点多(?)来到CMPB

June the 23rd is an unlucky day
it's also my (my brothers?) enlistment day
take taxi early in the morning
reach CMPB at 9am

当我来到CMPB
兵头收去红登记
叫我进去???
然后送我去IDE(?)

When I reach CMPB
the in-charge took away my pink IC
and then tell me to ???
then send me to IDE(?)

IDE是三楼屋
也是小弟的吃风屋
??,床和铁橱
兵衫兵裤通通有

?

黑黑两条叫Corporal
黑黑三条叫Sergeant
黑黑三条加一只蟹
那是叫做CSM

Black colour 2 stripe is called Corporal
Black colour 3 stripe is called Sergeant
Black colour 3 stripe and one more crab
that is called CSM

Sergeant若是发脾气
楼上楼下走到你死
Number 3 and Number 4
boh dai boh ji 换来换去

If the sergeant is angry
upstairs downstairs run until you die
Number 3 and Number 4
Keep changing without reason

天亮就training到夜晚
????SOC
?? Jialat 是走五公里
有时还要卷casualty

Early morning then training until night
??? SOC
?? jialat must run 5 k
sometimes still got to carry casualty

做兵一日赚三块
做兵两日赚六块
做兵三日赚九块
想要叫鸡欠一块

be a soldier for a day earn 3 bucks
be a soldier for 2 days earn 6 bucks
be a soldier for 3 days earn 9 bucks
want to call prostitute still short of 1.
