China National Anthem
March of the Volunteers

Arise! All those who don't want to be slaves!
Let our flesh and blood forge our new Great Wall!
As the Chinese peoplehave arrived at their most perilous time.
Every person is forced to expel his very last cry.
Arise! Arise! Arise!
Our million hearts beating as one,
Brave the enemy's fire, March on!
Brave the enemy's fire, March on!
March on! March on! On!
