The Lyrics

Mugger, in the local context, means someone who blatantly memorises books in the hope of scoring exam. Usually we Singaporeans add a 'chao' (Hokkien dialect for 'smelly') in front to depict our disgust with such people
Hello exam my old fiend
I've come to sit for you again
You had better be a breeze this time
Otherwise my mama's gonna break my spine
And the knowledge that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

I dreamt of you for quite some time
Studied you for all this while
Never resting for once all these days
Drinking coffee just to stay awake
And Mama, she made those disgusting soup
Black as soot
Which broke the sound of silence

Now under spotlights in the hall
Four hundred people and no more
Everybody sitting for their test
If they fail, in peace they'll never rest
They were told "My child you must do you best"
They never guess
The sounds of silence

And as the clock hands tick away
On their foreheads do sweat drops spray
Students calling what they learnt that day
And all the fees for tuition they once paid
All their sweat like silent raindrops fell
They were nervous, I could tell

Muggers everyone of them
Must have start reading in their prams
And the teacher called his warning
Fifteen minutes before ending
And the students, plus me all freeze like ice
Not enough time
Before we break the sounds of silence
