the sound of bamboo river

Ah Mooi walks on stage
With makeup and well suited
The wealth can be flaunted
The audience whispers silently

Ah Mooi doesn't care
A sugar daddy gave the wealth
On stage the MC announces
The audience clap their hands

Ah Mooi words of advice
It sounds hollow and deceptive
The audience of same feathers
They clap their hands

On the way out
Ah Mooi doesn't take questions
The reporters are barred
Wave to them and disappears in the car

But Ah Mooi lives in fear
The nightmares in the sleep
The gong of Bamboo River
The sound calling for the return
