웨터 ~ 이상한 나라의 로맨스

Wetter, “Romance in a Weird World”

 

Wetter is a band with seemingly unstoppable momentum at the moment. They’re everywhere, performing in Hongdae multiple times a week and making appearances at festivals. It’s easy to see why – their album, Romance in a Weird World, was released last month and is a serious earworm and a half.

I’m tempted to translate every single song on the album, but I decided to at least start with the title track. The Korean used in the title is the exact same wording used to translate Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, so the title might also be translated as “Romance in Wonderland,” in the old-fashioned sense of “wonder.” This might also contribute to the opening scene with the girl drinking all the water (“EAT ME,” “DRINK ME,” anyone?) in addition to the fact that the band’s name is Wetter so, yeah, she wants the water.

 

 

한국어:

 

머리가 울리고 숨이 가빠오잖아

이제 정신도 못 차릴 만큼

난 너무 높이 있나봐

 

날 이렇게 만든 넌 고갤 돌려

미소를 짓잖아

이제 다른 짓을 해봐

이제 내 품에 안겨봐

 

Hey, rich girl

Hey, rich babe

And poor boy

Oh, poor boy

난나나나나나나나나 ~

 

Hey, rich girl

Hey, rich babe

And poor boy

Oh, poor boy

 

이런 이상한 나라엔

항상 멍청한 녀석들이 넘쳐나

내가 정신을 못 차린 사이

넌 그들과 함께 있을까

(I’m scared)

 

날 두렵게 만든 넌 등을 돌려

다른 사람에게 안겨

난 어디에다 안겨

난 오늘 너 아니면 안돼

 

Hey, rich girl

Hey, rich babe

And poor boy

Oh, poor boy

난나나나나나나나나 ~

 

Hey, rich girl

Hey, rich babe

And poor boy

Oh, poor boy

 

Hey, rich girl

Hey, rich babe

And poor boy

Oh, poor boy

 

Hey, rich girl

Hey, rich babe

And poor boy

Oh, poor boy

 

 

English:

 

My ears are ringing and I can’t breathe

[I guess I’m so high

I can’t come to my senses now]

 

You made me like this but you turn your head away

You’re smiling, aren’t you?!

Try to make a different face now

Come into my embrace now

 

Hey, rich girl

Hey, rich babe

And poor boy

Oh, poor boy!

Na na na na na na na na na na~

 

Hey, rich girl

Hey, rich babe

And poor boy

Oh, poor boy!

 

In this kind of strange world,

it’s always overflowing with stupid guys

In the span of time I can’t come to my senses,

I wonder if you’ll go to them?

(I’m scared)

 

You made me scared but now you turn your back on me

You’re hugged by somebody else

I’m held back somewhere

Today, you’re the only one for me

 

Hey, rich girl

Hey, rich babe

And poor boy

Oh, poor boy!

Na na na na na na na na na na~

 

Hey, rich girl

Hey, rich babe

And poor boy

Oh, poor boy!

 

Hey, rich girl

Hey, rich babe

And poor boy

Oh, poor boy!

 

Hey, rich girl

Hey, rich babe

And poor boy

Oh, poor boy!
