    O Jewel-studded Land I've won,
    I registered myself,
    adorned myself with a name, an identity card,
    and my existence has become defined with a number.
    therefore, long live 678, resident of Tehran,
    long live 678, issued at precinct 5.
    my worries are over now
    In the homeland's loving bosom,
    my pacifier: glorious historical traditions,
    my lullaby: civilization and culture,
    my toy rattle: the rattle box of law.
    ah,
    my worries are over now.
