Malaysian In London

Lyrics By Khairil M. Bahar

To be sung to 'Englishman In New York'

You drink coffee I drink teh tarik*,
With my songkok* to one side,
At first glance you may think I'm a little chink,
But I'm not, I'm from the other side.

You wear denim, I wear a sarong*,
Listening to Search* or Wings*,
You can see it when I talk,
I'm a Malaysian in London.

Oh oh, I'm a Malaysian,
I am a Malaysian,
I'm a Malaysian in London...

You got winter I got summer all year round,
And I'm not from the Philipinnes,
I'm not sure wether I'm yellow or I'm brown,
But the colour, makes no differeance to me.

Oh oh, I'm a Malaysian,
I am a Malaysian,
I'm a Malaysian in London...

Oh oh, I'm a Malaysian,
I am a Malaysian,
I'm a Malaysian in London...

*Words that may seem alien to you...
Teh Tarik-Tea with milk made in such a way it tastes ten times sweeter and has a head.
Songkok-National dress hat.
Sarong-Malay 'at-home-casual' type dress, similair to a kilt, except longer and easier to put on.
Search and Wings-Malay groups.


Take me home to the Khiz World City...
