There might be some mistranslations near the end, I apologize for any mistakes. But some of the concepts i couldn't translate or didn't know what they meant as the word had multiple meanings.

The Serbian Radical Party (Serbian: Српска радикална странка, romanized: Srpska radikalna stranka; abbr. CPC or SRS) is a far-right ultranationalist political party in Serbia. The party was founded in 1991 by paramilitary leader and convicted war criminal Vojislav Šešelj.

The SRS was founded in 1991 as a merger of two minor right-wing parties whose leaders were Vojislav Šešelj and Tomislav Nikolić. They later became the President and Deputy President of the party respectively. During the first half of the 1990s, the SRS supported the ruling Socialist Party of Serbia regime, which had contributed greatly to the rise of SRS through the use of media. The party had strong support until the 2000 election, when they suffered a major defeat, but they would soon quickly rise up again to become one of the major parties. Šešelj led the party from its foundation in 1991 until his indictment in 2003, when he voluntarily surrendered to the ICTY to defend himself against charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity that he was alleged to have committed during the Croatian War of Independence and the Bosnian War. His deputy president Tomislav Nikolić assumed de facto leadership of the party until its split in 2008.
Former members of the SRS went on to form the current ruling party of Serbia, the Serbian Progressive Party or SNS.

Lyrics:
Ja sam unuk srpskog kapetana,
slavnog borca sa Kajmakčalana,
po njemu mi kuma ime dala,
potomak sam starog radikala

Zemljo moja slavnih potomaka,
probudi se, budi uvek jaka,
budi ono što si nekad bila,
oj Srbijo zemljo moja mila

Braćo moja srpski radikali,
svako svoje nek čuva i brani,
branim i ja, branim Bogu hvala,
potomak sam starog radikala

Zemljo moja slavnih potomaka,
probudi se budi uvek jaka,
budi ono što si nekad bila,
oj Srbijo zemljo moja mila

Večnaja pamjat borcu sa Soluna,
opevanom sa guslarskih struna,
sa ponosom slavimo im slavu,
večna pamjat srpskom radikalu

Zemljo moja slavnih potomaka,
probudi se budi uvek jaka,
budi ono što si nekad bila,
oj Srbijo zemljo moja mila
