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

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 at the end of the anthem is that singers who sing this bow at the end, full of respect for the nation and its national anthem.

တို့ပြည်၊ တို့မြေ၊
များလူခပ်သိမ်း၊ ငြိမ်းချမ်းစေဖို့၊
ခွင့်တူညီမျှ၊ ဝါဒဖြူစင်တဲ့ပြည်၊
တို့ပြည်၊ တို့မြေ၊
ပြည်ထောင်စုအမွေ၊ အမြဲတည်တံ့စေ၊
အဓိဋ္ဌာန်ပြုပေ၊ ထိန်းသိမ်းစို့လေ။
(ကမ္ဘာမကျေ၊ မြန်မာပြည်၊
တို့ဘိုးဘွား အမွေစစ်မို့ ချစ်မြတ်နိုးပေ။)

First Part[edit]

Where prevail justice and independence,
It's our country ... our land.
Where prevail equal rights and correct policies,
For people to lead a peaceful life,
It's our country ... our land.
We solemnly pledge to preserve,
The Union, and the heritage, for perpetuity.[4]
