Old and New Hong Kong
In the old days, There were villages, And small market stalls. Now there are housing estates, And large shopping malls.
In the old days, There were trees, And lots of bare rocks. Now there are towers, And concrete blocks.
In the old days, There were bicycles, And tinkling trams. Now there are minibuses, And traffic jams.
In the old days, There were people, In sedan chair. Now there are people, With lots of cares.
