Lyrics

起来!不愿做奴隶的人们!

Stand up! those who are unwilling to become slaves!

把我们的血肉,筑成我们新的长城!

Take our flesh, and build it to become a new Great Wall!

中华民族到了最危险的时候,

The Chinese people have reached a most dangerous time,

每个人被迫着发出最后的吼声。

Every person is being compelled to send issue a final roar.

起来!起来!起来!

Arise! Arise! Arise!

我们万众一心,

We are millions with one heart,

冒着敌人的炮火,前进

Braving our enemy’s gunfire, march on!

冒着敌人的炮火,前进!

Braving our enemy’s gunfire, march on!

前进!前进!进!

March on! March on! Charge![1]
