Thai lyrics Thai transcription
ประเทศไทยรวมเลือดเนื้อชาติเชื้อไทย Pra thet thai ruam luead nu'a chat chu'a thai
เป็นประชารัฐ ไผทของไทยทุกส่วน Pen pra cha rat pha thai kho'ng thai thuk suan
อยู่ดำรงคงไว้ได้ทั้งมวล Yu dam rong khong wai dai thang muan
ด้วยไทยล้วนหมาย รักสามัคคี Duay thai luan mai rak sa mak khi
ไทยนี้รักสงบ แต่ถึงรบไม่ขลาด Thai ni rak sa ngop tae thu'ng rop mai khlat
เอกราชจะไม่ให้ใครข่มขี่ Ek ka raj ja mai hai khrai khom khi
สละเลือดทุกยาดเป็นชาติพลี Sa la luead thuk yat pen chat p'hli
เถลิงประเทศชาติไทยทวี มีชัย ชโย Tha loeng pra thet chat thai tha wi mi chai ch'yo

English translation

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.
