When the British raised their white flag,
“Malaya was born!” we bragged.
31st of August, 1957, our Malayan flag was raised,
We stood proud for what we have achieved after so many days. 
We tilled this land of glory,
as we celebrate our victory.
Our honourable founding father, Tunku Abdul Rahman, pushed us further, 
Just to get back what was ours,
The British no longer in power. 
On the 16th of September, 1963, Malaya was united, With Singapore, Sarawak and North Borneo: we are delighted! We locked hands as we proudly stood,
Sang “Negaraku” as passionately as we could. 
9th of August 1965, our fellow friend,
Got separated from our family, but it wasn’t the end. We still continued to move on at any cost, Despite what we have lost. 
Malaysia continued to advance, Booming in economy, technology and finance. MRT, KLCC, National Zoo,
That is just to list a few,
Beautiful islands and great landmarks “Wow!” the foreigners would remark. 
Malaysia, oh Malaysia,
We promise to be respectful,
We promise to make you special, We promise to continue,
What has been started by you. But most importantly,
We promise to bear your name proudly, No matter where we are,
Or who we are. 
One nation, one country,
We continue to strive humbly,
As we hope to serve our very best for our nation, With full determination. 
Now all Malaysians are telling you, We are proud of you Malaysia! Thank you Malaysia!
You have done a lot for us!
