   'I want to go Home'

 (Ah-mi-mye-thoe'-lwyan-chinn)

 

1.  Honestly, I want to go Home

     From a country which is not my own

     Though having a career, life much better

     I won't be happy to settle forever.

 

2.  'Burma', 'Myanmar; we proudly call

      Motherland which means so much to ua all

      'Seeking brighter future' makes us leave

      Sad in our hearts - heavy and heave.

 

3.  Never a day went by without thinking
     Pray that 'She' won't go on sinking

  A beautiful land rich in resources

    Once endowed with intellect forces.

 

4.  Thinking of  a  'Reunion' - we all shall meet

     Smiling, laughing, hugging we'll greet

     Though now spread all over the globe

      'Rendevous Homeland' - do let us HOPE.
