ministerWhy am I not a Minister?
I was the longest serving minister in the world.
Look, I only lost Sungai Siput.
Tsu Koon lost Penang — the jewel in Gerakan’s crown.
His KPI in the way he governed the state was zero!
Now he has entered the Cabinet through the back door.
I only lost Sungai Siput
The Umno G..A. gave Rais Yatim a good kick.
Now he continues as Minister.

I only lost Sungai Siput.
The Umno G.A. gave Mukhriz Mahathir a good kick.
Now he is a deputy Minister.

I only lost Sungai Siput.
Sharizat lost in the General Elections.
Now she has entered the Cabinet through the back door.

No Indians around with leadership qualities like mine.
I have served the community for decades.
Will continue until I become a fossil.

I developed the nation — I paved the roads.
During by-elections, even up to the voters’ sinks.

I only lost Sungai Siput.
Toyo, the hero, became zero when he lost Selangor.
The precious jewel in BN’s crown.
He at least is a DUN.
But I am completely done!

Islam Hadhari, grant me justice.
I only lost Sungai Siput.
Brama, Vishnu, Siva, listen to my prayers.
I only lost Sungai Siput.

— Om Sami
