The Anthem of Azerbaijan
Azerbaijan! Azerbaijan!
You are the country of heroes!
We will die so that you might be alive!
We will shed our blood to defend you!
Long lives your three-colored banner!
Thousands of people sacrificed their lives

You're become the field of battles.
Every soldier fighting for you,
Has become a hero.
We pray for your prosperity,

We make sacrifice our lives to you
Our sincere love to you,
Comes from the bottom of our hearts.
To defend your honours,

To hoist your banner,
All the young people are ready.
Glorious motherland,
Azerbaijan! Azerbaijan!
