Clan Gathering Song

Take me home, Family Lo

With apologies to John Denver, Bill Danoff, Taffy Nivert


Almost heaven, Southeast Asia

Strait of Melaka, Singapore River

Hot and humid, shower every night

Rows ‘n rows of orchids, Hainan chicken rice



Family Lo, take me home

To the folks, I belong

Singapura, ocean momma

Take me home, Family Lo


All my mem’ries, gather ’round her

Aunts ‘n uncles, dearest to my mother

So many cousins, smiling big and wide

Names ‘n faces, hard to memorize


…. chorus


I hear her voice, in the mornin’ hours she calls to me

The radio reminds me of my folks far a-way

Flyin’ in the sky I get a feeling that I should have been home

Yesterday, yesterday


…. chorus
