If they perhaps would have cut the first 1:35 of the song or maybe some other part of it, and changed the lyrics for the rest or something, and got another video-director, then perhaps I would have been able to really enjoy this. Because the teaser pics were really kind of awesome. But I have to tell you this is not good enough. And out of all the terrible lyrics in the world of SNSD, and I’m telling you, I’ve put up with a lot of stuff from them concerning women and men, hatred agaisnt women. This is perhaps the stupidest? WHAT IS IT EVEN SUPPOSED TO MEAN?!!!

Am I’m having it especially hard this time because it’s impossible to interpret humor in to it? Because even though it’s too much it’s not even close to enough? They could have looked cool, fierce and sexy, but they don’t even make it to cute. And don’t get me wrong, I REALLY like the I Got a Boy-part…

Read the lyrics and then watch the MV below if interested. And this comes from someone who has Genie as his alarm-signal.

Ayo! GG! Yeah Yeah, shall we start?
Gosh! Look at her, look
What happened to her that she cut her hair? huh?
Gosh! Again look at her, look!
From head to toe, her style has changed
Why did she do that? I’m curious to death
why did she do that? Tell me

Ha ha! Let me introduce myself!
Here comes trouble! Follow after me!
Oh oh oh yeah oh, oh oh yeah oh
You really are something else!

Who is she? Ridiculous
Do you know you’re too self-assertive? She thinks I’m average
Yeah, I guess she really liked him!
No way! No way!
She became so pretty and sexy, it’s because of him, right?
I almost asked her what her new makeup was

Truthfully, I’ve seen it for the first time
The deep eyes, like a scarred beast
I was dizzy by just talking to him!
You really are something else! You really are something else!

Oh ohh eh oh
(Here’s come trouble, hey girl listen!)
Oh ohh eh oh
You really are something else! (something!)
Oh ohh eh oh (Hey!)
Oh ohh eh oh (Na na na na hey!)
You really are something else!

Ayo! Stop! Let me put it down another way.

I got a boy, a handsome one! I got a boy, a kind one!
I got a boy handsome boy, who took all my heart
I got a boy, a handsome one! I got a boy, a kind one!
I got a boy awesome boy, I must have really fallen for him

Ah, my prince! When are you gonna come save me?
Will you lift me in your arms and fly, like a white dream?

I’m like, surprised, mental collapse!
He wants to see my face without makeup.
I really like him, would it be okay to show it to him?
Oh! Never! Right? Right?
Let’s keep what needs to be kept, right! right!
Don’t ever forget this until you take all of his heart!

Oh ohh eh oh, Oh ohh eh oh
Even if I stay up all night, it’s not enough, everything everything
Oh ohh eh oh, Oh ohh eh oh
Our biggest interest, everything everything

Listen to me, you all know him, right?
He’s a bit young but he’s full inside
Sometimes he is as reliable as an oppa but when he acts charming, he is so cute

Oh ohh eh oh, Oh ohh eh oh
You’re crazy, crazy
Oh ohh eh oh, Oh ohh eh oh
You’re crazy, crazy

I’m really angry, my boy doesn’t look at me as a girl
What should I do when I feel hopeless?
Should I make him feel jealous? I’m so upset! What do I do?
No way! No way!

Don’t stop! Let’s bring it back to 140

I got a boy, a handsome one! I got a boy, a kind one!
I got a boy handsome boy, who took all my heart
I got a boy, a handsome one! I got a boy, a kind one!
I got a boy awesome boy, I must have really fallen for him

Always next to me, it’s you, who’s on my side and listens to me
You oh oh oh oh~ you oh oh oh oh~
I’m happy as it is right now, cause everything will work

I got a boy, a handsome one! I got a boy, a kind one!
I got a boy handsome boy, who took all my heart
I got a boy, a handsome one! I got a boy, a kind one!
I got a boy awesome boy, I must have really fallen for him (x2)

I got a boy, a handsome one!

God I really wanted this to be awesome. 😦 Gonna love them still though

    I tried to post links to the article so you can read them but my comments keeps getting deleted. So if you want to read the article just search for publication/website + Girls Generation

    1) LA Times –
    “‘I Got a Boy’ by Girls’ Generation, a gleefully chaotic song that says much about pop music’s trajectory.”

    2) Billboard –
    ” to create one of the most-forward thinking lead pop singles heard in any country. With this title track, Girls’ Generation just set the bar truly high for pop in 2013.”

    3) MuuMuse –
    ““I Got A Boy” probably won’t click on first play/view (actually, it definitely won’t), but with each listen, the track’s genius becomes increasingly obvious: It’s a majorly forward-thinking, fearless production that bends the rules of pop, and further cements Girls’ Generation’s legacy as one of the most exciting South Korean girl groups of the decade.”

    4) Popdust –
    “A song this slammin’ deserves an equally as brilliant music video, and as expected, Girls’ Generation delivers. ”

    5) MTV –
    “it’s pretty much impossible to watch it just once. Ahem, not that we’re complaining…”

    6) AKP –
    “I have absolutely no complaints about this song. It is without a doubt the strongest release by Girls’ Generation—and perhaps in all of K-Pop—to date. Kudos to SM Entertainment for their obvious hard work to transition these girls from an object of the male gaze to a legitimate musical group. ”

    7) Toronto Star –
    “The result — arguably among the most adventurous pop music being made on the planet — both invites resistance and makes it difficult to summon any up. ”

    8) Idolator –
    “The bombastic track gets equally over-the-top visuals, with a color palette that would make Nicki Minaj yelp with excitement and synchronized dance moves that are swag personified. We know it’s early in the year, but it’ll be tough to find anything else in 2013 that packs such a glorious sensory overload into such a short amount of time.”

    • Thank you, dunno why they got deleted. Usually I’m very good at coping with SNSD,I love them but the lyrics for this track makes me angry. On the other hand I have listened to this track soo many times.

  • Ipodman says:

    I love this song, definitely one of my favourite GG songs 😀

    I’m not bothered by the lyrics because I don’t understand Korean anyway… the rhythm of the song is great, the singing and dancing from the girls is awesome, I see nothing to fault this awesome piece ;D

    • I might get there, an as I mentioned in earlier comment, I have listened many many times so far. But the lyrics Is at the moment a big problem for me. But parts of the song, like I Got a Boy has awesome melody. Sorry

  • […] Jag brukar inte vara en sådan som läser översättningar av texter men efter tips från The Future Is Idol kunde jag inte låta bli och alltså. […]

  • […] ni läst inlägg från Johanna och Elin på Dancing on Our Own, The Future is Idol och Lizzie på Beyond Hallyu och även sett Eat Your Kimchi’s recension av låten så […]
