This is a love song to Belarus

One hundred thousand people

Are marching on Minsk’s streets today

One hundred thousand people

Are marching to throw off the yolk

Of the dictator Lukashenko’s tyranny.

One hundred thousand people maybe more

Marched along the main streets

Of Minsk and many other towns

Defying riot police who block off the streets

This is a love song to the people of Belarus.

One hundred thousand people

Marched today in the hearts

And the minds of the people of Belarus

Defying Lukashenko whose time has ended

This is a love song to the people of Belarus.

One hundred thousand people

Are marching today in Minsk

One hundred thousand people

Marched in the main streets

Many hundreds lie in the stink of prisons

Demanding freedom! Demanding life must begin!

One hundred thousand people marched today in Minsk.

This is a love song to the people of Belarus.
