NDP 2017 Theme Song
This year, the national day theme song is an inspiration from the everyday lives of Singaporeans living together in harmony. This explains its title, “Because It’s Singapore”.
NDP 2017 Theme Song Lyrics:
Step by step
Together we’ll build our dreams
Heart to heart
Together we’ll stay as one nation, undivided
Back to back
Together we’ll brave the heat, the cold, the storms
Hand in hand
Together we’ll grow this land that we call home
Nothing in this world compares
It’s our Singaporean Life
Everyone is family, friend and neighbour
Living in harmony
Nothing in this world compares
To this island where it’s home
Where we love and know we’ll never be alone
Because it’s Singapore (Just Believe)
This is Singapore (We Can Be)
Our Singapore (The world will see)
We are Singapore
