The New Year has arrived and Thais nationwide will survive from conflicts and crisis
Save our motherland for the next generation
As nowadays, the world is turbulent by combats and fighting wills of mankind
Our country is facing with wickedness not better as the nation’s future falls to greediness of people
Let’s fight for our patriot land
Fight with those who dare sell even state-enterprises
Fight with poverty, but let’s hold tight to honesty
And that you‘d rather die from hunger,
But never support corruption
For our land to be clean from immorality
And for purity to return to every heart
And for the love of the nation

On the top: Happy New year 2008 the year of reconciliation for peace of the nation
On the side of the tank: Army’s tank for peace of the nation
Behind Chavolit: Conciliator

On the scroll:
Cherish the harmony of the nation
With our sharing hearts
Follow closely to what our father says to us
As the words are always blessings for the nation
Today we joyously gather
To share our good wishes
A new year time has come
A golden year for us to hope
