Proud To Be Vietnamese

Four thousand years of national history

From brilliant dynasties – Trieu, Dinh, Ly, Tran

With millions of Vietnamese soldier’s deaths

Skipping life for gaining independence

Young generations forever cite your merits.

This country’s like a steel ship

Of compatriots all over the S shaped land

Invisible and invincible patriotism it carries.

Yellow skin with red blood – we’re proud to be Vietnamese

Each person’s as a national banner

United and unanimous whenever foe comes.

Vietnam – Dien Bien Victory, landmark battle for our history

In the night, artillery fires, B-52 goes down row to row

Entire under General Giap’s control

Territorial integrity, sovereignty independence come back

No struggle or shooting permitted

Army, Navy with Air Force hold our ground

My nation, national heroes.
