Tao Nan as one of the pioneer schools
Has stood tall in Singapore several decades past
At the crossroads of Europe and Asia where all races gather
Furthering the learning of the sciences, arts and philosophy
Grooming talents to serve the nation
Each generation doing its forebears proud
Striving to blend the best of East and West
Leading the world into peace and harmony
In the great universe where Chinese descendents flourish and prosper,
Virtue, intellect, health, social conscience and easthetics, are five qualities we value and nurture.
Be diligent in studies, brave in action,
And persevere in fostering our school spirit.
Let teachings of China flow to the southern lands, our ways shall never cease.
Let us all strive, let us never forget.
