MALAYSIA WONDERFUL
I found me a paradise
I’ll stay there the rest of my life
It’s called Malaysia, Wonderful Malaysia
Skies have never been so blue

Beautiful countryside
Ocean all around so wide
I’ll stay there
Yes, I’m gonna stay there the rest of my life
Yes, I’m gonna stay right there

Malaysia, Wonderful Malaysia
People you love right away
Not enough hours in the day
The nights seem to slip away
In Malaysia
Yes, I’m gonna stay there the rest of my life
Oh yes, I’m gonna stay right there
