You are a champion
You are a champion and you should know that
Forget the dos and donts, the mistakes and drawbacks
Because what you did that night no other Malaysian could do,
you reunited a country of people, and got a world rooting for you
5th August 2012
Sure, he’s got the gold and he took the medal
but u took home hearts that wont fade or go brittle
You took home cheers even in those tears
going out with everything on the line, you blew our minds
with the best game we’ve seen, that forever will shine
Dato Lee Chong Wei
You stand for everything the Malaysian spirit should be
You take the country to the finals and still say you’re sorry?
Dude screw that.
Take that, break that, dump that and trash that
You know what? We’re sorry
We’re sorry that most of us blabbed about,
the free dessert and the holiday we could do without
We came for the worthless but stayed for your gold
Yes you heard me, your gold
Because that’s the story that’ll be told
and how you did it your way,
the hard way the painful way,
the humble and the right way.
The Lee Chong Wei - way
Because you broke down in that court for a country you think you let down,
but the only thing you did was to let the world know you weren’t messing ‘round.
People go for medals you go for a nation
Don’t say you’re sorry, we don’t need your explanation
So this goes right out to you, our country’s hero.
He’s won an accessory, you’ve won a people.
