Thai People stand up to show respect for their national anthem.
First English translation Second English translation Third English translation
Thailand unites flesh and blood of Thais, Thailand unites its people with flesh and blood, Thailand embraces in its bosom all people of Thai blood ,
Nation of the people; belonging to the Thais in every respect. Land of Thailand belongs to the Thais. Every inch of Thailand belongs to the Thais.
Long maintained [has been] the independence, Long maintained its sovereignty, It has long maintained its sovereignty,
Because the Thais seek, and love, unity. All Thais intend to unite together. Because the Thais have always been united.
Thais are peace-loving, But at war we're no cowards. Thais are peace-loving, no cowards at distress. The Thai people are peace-loving, But they are no cowards at war.
Sovereignty will not be threatened. They shall allow no one to rob them of freedom. Nor shall they suffer tyranny.
They will sacrifice every drop of their blood to contribute to the nation, Sacrificing every drop of blood for the nation, All Thais are ready to give up every drop of blood ,
Hail the nation of Thailand, long last the victory, Hurrah. They will serve their country with pride and prestige, full of victory. Chai Yo (Cheers). For the nation's safety, freedom and progress.
