This is my country. This is my land.
I love everything belongs to my land.
I like the sun. I like the sand.
We'll remain together hand in hand.
I like the sky. I like the seas.
I like the flowers and also the trees.
I want justice. I want peace.
Oh guards, protect our land, please.
Peace, peace, peace be upon you and me.
Peace, peace, peace be upon you and me.
♫ ♫ ♫
I want peace. I need calm.
I hate weapons and I hate wars.
I'll fight anyone who hurts you, mum,
Causes you damage or causes you harm.
I don't fear the death. I don't fear the bars.
I'll defend Algeria with blood and arms
To be free, free, free all of you and me
To be free, free, free all of you and me.
