조문근밴드 ~ 어쩌라고

MOONBAND, “So What?!”

 

This is my favorite MOONBAND (or JoMunGeun Band, whatever) song. I mean, I’m a pretty big fan of the wide range of songs they come up with, and I’ve already translated their title song from their newest album, but this is my favorite. It’s vicious. I detest the kind of people depicted in this song while simultaneously being fearful that I am one of them. We all need to blow off some steam every once in a while, but nobody likes hanging about those who do nothing but complain. Every time I’m in the company of someone like that, I just want to scream, “어쩌라고!!”

 

 

한국어:

 

시험 못 봤다고

다가와 질질 짜는 너

(근데 98점)

물만 먹었는데

살찐다 불평하는 너

(근데 45kg)

 

만나면 지 자랑에 콧대가 솟을 때

모이면 지 허세에 목이 뻣뻣할 때

보이면 지 똥 굵다 내게 자랑할 때

그래서 내가 하고 싶은 말은 뭐게

 

(어쩌라고) 알았으니깐 좀 그만해

(어쩌라고) 관심 없으니깐 조용해

(어쩌라고) 듣기 싫어 좀 닥쳐줄래

(어쩌라고 나보고 어쩌라고)

 

보고서 올리고

무한 다시를 외칠 때

(뭔데 원하는 게)

같은 보고서 또

올렸는데 OK 할 때

(뭔데 원하는 게)

 

상사가 술 세다고 한없이 맥일 때

동기가 승진하고 얄밉게 말할 때

후임이 다 아는 척 가르치려 들 때

그래서 내가 하고 싶은 말은 뭐게

 

어쩌라고 알았으니깐 좀 그만해

어쩌라고 관심 없으니깐 조용해

어쩌라고 듣기 싫어 좀 닥쳐줄래

어쩌라고 나보고 어쩌라고

 

하늘은 맑은데

기분도 좋은데

얘들은 왜 이래

나한테 왜 그래

하늘은 맑은데

기분도 좋은데

얘들은 왜 이래

나한테 왜 그래

 

어쩌라고 알았으니깐 좀 그만해

어쩌라고 관심 없으니깐 조용해

어쩌라고 듣기 싫어 좀 닥쳐줄래

어쩌라고 나보고 어쩌라고

 

어쩌라고 알았으니깐 좀 그만해

어쩌라고 관심 없으니깐 조용해

어쩌라고 듣기 싫어 좀 닥쳐줄래

어쩌라고 나보고 어쩌라고

 

 

English:

 

You say you didn’t do well on your test

and come crying to me

(but you got 98 points)

Even though you only drank water,

you complain that you’ve gained weight

(but you’re 45kg)

 

When we meet and your nose is high in the air from bragging

When we get together and your neck is stiff from bluffing

When I see you and you brag about how your s*** don’t stink

What exactly do you want me to say?!

 

(So what?!) I got it so just stop already

(So what?!) I’m not interested so be quiet

(So what?!) I don’t wanna listen so shut up

(So what?! Look at me and tell me what you want me to do about it!)

 

When you submit a report

and keep screaming about it without end

(what exactly is it that you want?!)

When you submit the same report

again and again until you get an OK

(what exactly is it that you want?!)

 

When you blow off steam about how good your boss is at drinking

When you nastily talk about how your coworker got promoted

When you patronize your successor by pretending to know everything

What exactly do you want me to say?!

 

(So what?!) I got it so just stop already

(So what?!) I’m not interested so be quiet

(So what?!) I don’t wanna listen so shut up

(So what?! Look at me and tell me what you want me to do about it!)

 

The sky is bright

I’m feeling good but

why is everybody like this?

Why are you like this to me?

The sky is bright

I’m feeling good but

why is everybody like this?

Why are you like this to me?

 

(So what?!) I got it so just stop already

(So what?!) I’m not interested so be quiet

(So what?!) I don’t wanna listen so shut up

(So what?! Look at me and tell me what you want me to do about it!)

 

(So what?!) I got it so just stop already

(So what?!) I’m not interested so be quiet

(So what?!) I don’t wanna listen so shut up

(So what?! Look at me and tell me what you want me to do about it!)
