Hanyu Pinyin

yú sī wàn nián , yà dōng dà dì guó !
shān yuè zòng héng dú lì zhì , jiāng hé màn yán wén míng bō ;
sì bǎi zhào mín shén míng zhòu, dì dà wù chǎn bó 。
yáng wǒ huáng lóng dì guó huī , chàng wǒ dì guó gē !

English Translation

We located here for thousands years as a great empire in east Asia!
Mountains in our land, rivers in our land, spread the culture;
400 million¹ people blessed by God, we have a big land and plenty of product.
Raise our Yellow Dragon Emblem Proud, sing our empire's song!

¹兆 usually means one trillion (1012), but it could mean one million (106), and should have that value here in the song for factual accuracy. See Chinese numerals for details.
