Pra thet thai ruam nu'a chat chu'a thai
Pen pra cha rat pha thai kho'ng thai thuk suan
Yu dam rong khong wai dai thang muan
Duay thai luan mai rak sa mak
khi Thai ni rak sa ngop
tae thu'ng rop mai khalt
Ek ka rat ¹ha mai hai khrai khom khi
Sa la luat thuk yat pen chat phli
Tha loeng pra thet chat thai tha wi mi chat chai yo.
Thailand embraces in its bosom all people of Thai blood.
Every inch of Thailand belongs to the Thais.
It has long maintained its sovereignty,
Because the Thais have always been united.
The Thai people are peace-loving,
But they are no cowards at war.
They shall allow no one to rob them of their independence,
Nor shall they suffer tyranny.
All Thais are ready to give up every drop of blood
For the nation's safety, freedom and progress.
