English Translation

First Part

Where prevail justice and independence,
It's our country ... our land.
Where prevail equal rights and correct policies,
For people to lead a peaceful life,
It's our country ... our land.
We solemnly pledge to preserve,
The Union, and the heritage, for perpetuity

Second Part

Literal

Until the world ends up shattering, long live Burma!
We love our land because this is our real inheritance.
Until the world ends up shattering, long live Burma!
We love our land because this is our real inheritance.
We will sacrifice our lives to protect our country,
This is our nation, this is our land and it belongs to us.
Being our nation and our land, let us do good causes to our nation in unity!
And this is our very duty to our invaluable land.

Syllables Matched with Notes

We shall love, forevermore
Burma (Myanmar) the land of our fathers of yore!
We shall love, forevermore
Burma (Myanmar) the land of our fathers of yore!
Giving our lives for our union we fight,
This is our country, our land, ours by right.
We, for her the tasks responsibly shoulder,
As we'll stand in duty to this, our precious land.
