Pantun Enche Lee Kuan Yew
Nama Dia paling cermelang,
Petir terang langit malam,
Terima kasih seluruh orang,
Pemimpin Singa dari alam!
Tebar bernih tengah ladang,
Puchok da-jadi pokok besar,
Tukang tabor hilang bayang,
Cukop sedih kita bepisah!

(English Translation)
Bright ever shinning is his name,
Lightning brightens the nights,
Grateful are we one & all,
A Lion of Leaders of an era!
Seeds sown in fields around,
Saplings grown to sturdy trees,
The Sower’s shadow is now gone,
Sorrowful indeed is our parting!
