더 모노톤즈 ~ Brown Eyed Girl

The Monotones, “Brown Eyed Girl”

 

About a year ago, I randomly came across a band as I waited to see Kiha and the Faces at Valley Rock. This band that I saw, they were pretty good and I liked their sense of humor regarding their peach-butt album cover, so I decided to check out their music. About a year later, I’ve met them in person, gotten their signature, seen their gigs multiple times, and still am in love with their debut album. And now, about a year later, with Valley Rock literally days away, there are two groups conspicuously absent : BOTH Kiha and the Faces AND The Monotones! The Monotones have been busy, though, first with their European tour and then preparing to open for Foo Fighters in about a month. I just hope it’s not too long before I can hear The Monotones again. In the meantime, I translate.

 

 

한국어:

 

My darling 나는 아직 준비가 안됐어요

술 한잔 먹고 올 테니 꼭 기다려주세요

 

이 시린 겨울이 가고 나면

그대를 가질 수 있을까

난 왜 항상 맴돌던 걸까

 

My darling 그대 실루엣에 취해버렸어

휘청휘청대는 팔다리를 달래요

 

망설일 틈새조차 없이

어느새 날아들어와

내 맘을 온통 흔들어놓네

 

위태롭게 다가왔던 어린 날의 꿈

날 어지럽게 만들었던 방안의 secret

교태로운 숨소리

그리고 찰나의 망상이

어느새 바싹 말라버린

아찔했던 둘만의 춤

 

아련하게 사라지는 야릇한 로맨스

날 얼간이로 만들었던 은밀한 눈빛

 

그 향기에 휩싸여

컴컴한 수렁에 빠져서

끝없이 사랑을 나눴지

For that’s my brown eyed girl

 

My darling 우리 서로 탓하지는 말아요

무더운 그 밤 그대 숨결을 난 기억해

 

희미한 저 기억 너머로

술잔을 비워댄대도

그대를 가질 수가 있겠어

 

My brown eyed girl

 

My brown eyed girl (my brown eyed girl)

My brown eyed girl (my brown eyed girl)

My brown eyed girl (my brown eyed girl)

 

 

English:

 

My darling, I’m not ready yet

I’ll have one drink then go so please wait

 

When this cold winter passes,

I wonder if I can have you

Why am I always just hanging around?

 

My darling, I got drunk off your silhouette

My tottering limbs just want to run about

 

Without even getting a chance to hesitate,

all of a sudden you flew over

My entire heart is shaking

 

It’s a childhood dream that has dangerously approached

A locked-up secret that makes me dizzy

 

The flirty sound of your breath

and a moment of delusion

All of a sudden I’m completely parched

Just the two of us are dancing a dizzying dance

 

Our strange romance is growing faint

That furtive look in your eyes made a fool of me

 

I’m engulfed in that fragrance

I fell into a dark pit and subsequently

just kept sharing my endless love

For that’s my brown eyed girl

 

My darling, let’s not blame each other

I remember your breath on that sweltering evening

 

I go over that faint memory

even though my glass is empty

I can have you, can’t I?

 

My brown eyed girl

 

My brown eyed girl (my brown eyed girl)

My brown eyed girl (my brown eyed girl)

My brown eyed girl (my brown eyed girl)
