"Kaba Ma Kyei" (ကမ္ဘာမကျေ [ɡəbà mə tɕè]; English: "Till the End of the World") is the Burmese national anthem. It has been the national anthem of Myanmar since 1947. The preamble of the anthem is in the traditional Burmese style, before transitioning into a Western-style orchestra.

History

The melody and lyrics were written by Saya Tin[1] and adopted as the Burmese national anthem in 1947.

According to the Constitution of Myanmar (2008), the complete version of Kaba Ma Kyei includes both the anthem in traditional Burmese style and Western-style.[2] The complete version is usually used on domestic occasions.[3]

A long-standing tradition is that those who sing Kaba Ma Kyei bow at the end, as a show of respect for the nation and its anthem.

တရားမျှတ လွတ်လပ်ခြင်းနဲ့မသွေ၊
တို့ပြည်၊ တို့မြေ၊
များလူခပ်သိမ်း၊ ငြိမ်းချမ်းစေဖို့၊
ခွင့်တူညီမျှ၊ ဝါဒဖြူစင်တဲ့ပြည်၊
တို့ပြည်၊ တို့မြေ၊
ပြည်ထောင်စုအမွေ၊ အမြဲတည်တံ့စေ၊
အဓိဋ္ဌာန်ပြုပေ၊ ထိန်းသိမ်းစို့လေ။

As we'll stand in duty to this, our precious land.
