Verse 1
It was a different thinking that came into mind,
To compose a song for this modern time
The timeless hits of long ago,
As we all know
Set the trend for others to follow
With this inspiration, I took in front to compose a song with a new vision
Something different is an innovation

Something Different
For the panman and panwoman
That could mash up the Grand Stand
With a steady rhythmn
Something different
For the panorama this year
When the judge give the all clear
We mashing up without fear

Great Melody
Sweet Harmony
A Symphony
Pan in a rage
Light up de stage
For panorama

Verse 2
I had a conversation with one of my comrades
About the upcoming competition
New motivation is what I looking for this year
We need a lil more stimulation
Every year is the same thing
pong pang pang ping
I want something to have me jumping up
Something different for we presentation

Verse 3

It took a start from the heart for
others to follow...TO
Continue the good work of tomorrow
A few lines could make a difference
Just take a chance
I will be the first to make a stance
You could improvise but do not stray
To have something different, it is here to stay
something different is my declaration
