I'd Like to Sing in Singapore by Kenn Nesbitt

I’d like to sing in Singapore
or run around Iran.
I’d leave my den in Denmark,
and go pack in Pakistan.

I’d fill-up in the Philippines,
then take a spin through Spain
to buy a new umbrella for
the rain around Bahrain.

I’d love to rush to Russia
and perhaps pursue Peru,
but then I’d wait around Kuwait
and chill in Chile too.

I’d bang around in Bangladesh.
I’d roam around in Rome.
Then finish up in Finland
right before I headed home.

I’d like to sing in Singapore.
I’ve heard it’s fun to do.
I know you can in Canada.
Can you in Kenya too?
