Arirang kokearo naumawkanda
Na reul pauriko kasineun nimeun
Simnido moskasaw palpyaungnanda

over the peak at Arirang
you left me behind.
You will be tired before you reach one mile.
Walking over the peak at Arirang
the sorrows in my heart
are as many as the stars in the sky.
The 7th Infantry Division version is below (it was adopted as the official marching song of the 7th ID on May 26, 1956, by General Order 63, HQ, 7th Infantry Division):
your Bayonets high
For Freedom's Fight will never die
Shout for Victory and sing a song that men are free.
I am a Bayonet,
Place your trust in me.
Hold your Bayonets high
For Freedom's Fight will never die.
