For the New Generation

Listen to us, new Azeri generation,
"Dayirman" [the Mill] is moving, it's always with you.
We lead the new generation forward.
Ahead, Azeri youth!
Listen to our words,
To our thoughts, useful for the nation.
The world is spinning in anxiety,
People do not value their land, their water,
We were created out of land, and we are going back there.
We get happy, we live, we cry.
It's impossible to change our life.
Maybe if we change ourselves,
If we unite, live and don't separate.
If we forget our past, once and for all,
We will cross out our future.
Happiness is waiting for us.
Work and fight for the future!
The old system has already been destroyed.
We are free in our actions now.
Come on, let's prove ourselves by our deeds.
We are the children of one nation,
We are the keys against utter darkness.
Let's take out our burning hearts
And light the way for the followers.

New words, new songs, new thoughts,
Look to tomorrow, look to tomorrow!

Look to tomorrow, look to tomorrow!
Look into the eyes of the forgotten people,
They used to be young in their times, too.
We will get old, too.
Mirror is not our reflection - it's our actions, that is.
It's what we've done for the Motherland.
It's our nature, respect for the elderly people,
It's our song, our word, our music.
Our nations, our nation, our nation, we.
The future of the nation is always dear to us.
To the emigrated people,
To the young like us, to Azeri children.
I have something to tell you, listen to me,
Don't get offended by these words.
If your child asks you: "Where's my Motherland?"
What will your answer be? Azerbaijan or ...?
Where you live now is a strange country to us.
Will this bitter conversation be pleasant to you?
You are Azeri, too, you are our blood,
You are our soul, our eyes, our brothers!
Join us, let's be together,
Let's defeat our enemies together,
We with you, you with us,
Let's be proud of our nation together!

New words, new songs, new thoughts,
Look to tomorrow, look to tomorrow!

We are the new generation and if we create the conditions,
And we catch the pulse of time,
We will do great things for our Motherland.
We will show ourselves to the whole universe!
Think, today passed
And tomorrow you are all on your own,
Your deeds, your thoughts and grief,
Usefulness you will be giving to children.
If this idea develops in youth,
You will never be alone if you think the same way.
What should I think? Work, try, and don't rely on anyone,
Make your own decisions in your life,
Make money, get rich,
Don't harm our country.
Don't sell yourselves, don't deceive yourselves in the end.
Don't humiliate the nation because of yourselves,
Be always proud of our great nation.
Pray to God for support.
Don't live with the past, live with the future.
We are developing, everything is in the future.
Live a healthy life, be healthy! (Repeat twice).
Fight against bad actions! (Repeat twice).
Fight against drugs! (Repeat twice).
Fight against slops! (Repeat twice).
Fight against enemies! (Repeat twice).
Fight against godless people! (Repeat twice).

Dayirman ­ remedy from grief,
Is always trying for the best of the nation.
New generation is a hope for future.
We are growing for the favor of the nation,
We must support each other,
We have to and we shouldn't forget this.
Look around you and choose your surroundings,
Choose the right way out of all.
Be active, don't limit yourself.
You will rise in the eyes of the nation.
Listen and live, listen and live!
Listen and live, listen and live!

Come to Martyr's Alley regularly,
Remember those lying there, explain to everybody.
Youth is hope, elder is respect.
If we live according to these rules,
If we stay, live and try like this,
If we don't bend, our children won't bend either.
Enemy will get scared seeing this and won't come closer.
My microphone is my weapon, my hope is God,
These words will find their reflection.
We exist throughout history and will be alive forever.
We will be working hard with our Motherland.

Look to tomorrow!
