Dick Lee SG50 song: What else rhymes with 'Singapore' besides 'core'

After a preview of the song earlier this month, the official video of NDP 2015 Theme Song: Our Singapore by Dick Lee was released this week.



I've blogged about the song previously and expressed how annoyed I am by the chorus which ends with the two lines:
A land to treasure right down to the core
Our home, our heart, our Singapore
"Core" is such a jarring word to use just because it rhyme with "Singapore".

So I want to propose 10 alternatives to the line "A land to treasure right down to the core" that also rhyme with "Singapore". They may or may not be better than the original, but they're certainly no worse:
1.
Where national service is every young man's chore
Our home, our heart, our Singapore

2.
When it's GSS, there'll be bargains galore
Our home, our heart, our Singapore

3.
It gets so hot, you'll sweat from every pore
Our home, our heart, our Singapore

4.
The trains are breaking down more often than before
Our home, our heart, our Singapore

5.
Where many foreigners can find an open door
Our home, our heart, our Singapore

6.
A land that 6.9 million people can adore
Our home, our heart, our Singapore

7.
Where the cost of living continues to soar
Our home, our heart, our Singapore

8.
Sometimes it resembles Orwell's 1984
Our home, our heart, our Singapore

9.
At Orchard Towers, you can find four floors of whores
Our home, our heart, our Singapore

10.
Will the PAP rule forever more?
Our home, our heart, our Singapore
