Adrian Lee gives a familiar tune a new take, expressing what is on the minds of not a few motorists.
Since one nine eight three
Everybody’s been criticising
Cronyism, Patriotism, Capitalism, Amateurism, Egoism, Protectionism
All he is saying… (still) give Proton a chance
Yet he is saying… (must) give Proton a chance
Everybody’s fussing bout ministers not driving a Proton
Power windows, Lotus and dashboards
Bailouts and air-cons and prices that pop-my-eyes
And bye bye, my RM, just bye bye
But he’s still saying…give Proton a chance
And he’s still saying…give Proton a chance
Let me tell you how
Almost everybody’s driving a
Saga, Wira, Satria, Exora,
Plagiarised Lancer Evolution, AP regulations, no competition
Affirmative action, costly cars from overseas nations,
Where’s the innovation?
All we’re now asking… still give Proton a chance?
And its still puzzling… give Proton a chance?
Everybody’s asking about
CKD and CBD, TPPA, automotive policy,
Excise duties and import taxes, public transportation, how to buy a Mini Cooper,
Direct competitors, used car dealers,
ANCAP rating, sorry I’m not rich ma,
Hari-hari rakyat merana
Yet he’s still saying… give Proton a chance
Well he’s still saying… give Proton a chance
Now we are asking… why give Proton a chance?
How we are suffering… but give Proton a chance?
