Singapore National Day Parade - "Five Stars Arising" - '69 Music/Lyrics By Lim Su Chong

Not only did we have top pop bands in the 60s, there is also a National Day Song composed in 1969 by Lim Su Chong.


Five Stars Arising

There's a new moon arising, out of the stormy sea
Youthful and bright and bearing hope, and tranquil as can be
Reach out for the moon above, savour freedom, truth and love
There's a new moon arising, out of the stormy sea
There are five stars arising, out of the stormy sea
Each is a lamp to guide our way; a lamp for all to see
Reach out for the stars above, savour freedom, truth and love
There are five stars arising, out of the stormy sea
There's a new flag arising, out of the stormy sea
Crimson as the blood of all mankind, yet white n pure n free
Reach out for the flag above, savour freedom, truth and love
There's a new flag arising, happy and proud are we
Music/Lyrics: Lim Su Chong

Hi, is there any way to contact you personally, perhaps via email? Because i'm currently a student with an ongoing project relating to local 1960s music and that your articles are really useful and relevant.
Thanks
