Millions of buds of Myrtlies flowered in the sino-vietnamese boundary regions
Particularly dedicated to hundred thousands of Vietnamese Soldiers who died for our Motherland's
and Fatherland's Independance in the 1979 War against
the chinese invaders ...
Bạch Đằng Giang
Millions of buds of Myrtlies flowered
Come back, Millions of our Mother Vietnam's sons
From hundreds of the sino-vietnamese wars
In our History of more than 4000 years
Do come back, Millions of our brave Warriors' Souls
And do enjoy life like peaceful years before
We will give you for this the most beautiful violet Myrtly !
When Millions of our brave Soldiers were going to war in the Northern boundary regions
You, Millions of girls and young wives have put the violet Myrtly on their swords or their rifles
As the symbol of words to say good-bye and hope to promise one another to see again later
Ải Chi Lăng
What would give you, our brave Warriors, hey now !
If you, brave Warrior's Souls come back
To your lovers or young wives from anti-chinese wars ?
Hey, Millions of girls and young wives, Millions of our brave Soldiers died in the fight against China for the Independance
Despite you all gave them Millions of the beautiful Myrtlies
But War is unfaithfull to the gift of your own hands
And the eternal enemy from the North is always wicked and insincere to your gifts
But never the fidelity and the passion of your hearts went out !
Millions of our brave Warriors' Souls don't need anything right now
Because Millions of buds of violet Myrtlies
are already flowered for them
In the sino-vietnamese boundary forests
There, under the ground of their Motherland and Fatherland, where they have fallen and died
Millions of the beautiful violet Myrtlies
have grown on Millions of the unknown graves
In the sino-vietnamese boundary regions
MILLIONS OF HONEST PEOPLE
