G-DRAGON – COUP D’ETAT lyrics [Hangeul, Romanization & Translation]

The hottest song in Korea now! Personally, I like this type of title song better than GD’s other title songs, except for “Breathe”. It seems like this song is talking about a coup d’etat done by invading people’s mind, that is, through his music. And yes, it will not be GD if he doesn’t come up with intricate, quirky yet awesome music video. My favorite scene is when he stands in the middle of rows of white masks, covered with something black and sticky. The contrasting colours are just eye-catching!

People

The revolution will not be televised

The revolution is in your mind

The revolution is here

 

This is my Coup D’e Tat

입에서 입으로 도는 부메랑

Ib-e-seo ib-eu-ro do-neun bu-me-rang

Hand’s up get high

노래 시작한다 내가 술래다

No-rae shi-jak-han-da nae-ga sul-lae-da

 

꼭꼭 숨어 머리카락 보일라

Ggok-ggok sum-eo meo-ri-ka-rak bo-il-la

난 아버님 댁 놓아드린 새 보일러

Nan a-beo-nim daek noh-a-deu-rin sae bo-il-leo

그래 이건 스포일러 I’m so fly 무서워 ‘F’ 킬라

Geu-rae i-geon seu-po-il-leo I’m so fly mu-seo-weo “F” kil-la

여자들의 가슴 훔치는 고릴라

Yeo-ja-deul-eui ga-seum hum-chi-neun go-ril-la

Bang bang bang 난 이빨로 돈을 벌어

Bang bang bang nan i-bbal-lo don-eul beol-eo

내 노래 한번에 넌 회사에서 손을 털어

Nae no-rae han-beon-e neon hoe-sa-e-seo son-eul teol-eo

도 돼 이 GAME 에 난 타 to the 짜

Do dwae i GAME-e nan ta to the jja

너는 사 to the 짜 절대 모르니까 FAME

Neo-neun sa to the jja jeol-dae mo-reu-ni-gga FAME

 

This is my Coup D’e Tat

입에서 입으로 도는 부메랑

Ib-e-seo ib-eu-ro do-neun bu-me-rang

Hand’s up get high

노래 시작한다 내가 술래다

No-rae shi-jak-han-da nae-ga sul-lae-da

 

시간이 돈이라면 난 상당히 빈곤

Shi-gan-i don-i-ra-myeon nan sang-dang-hi bin-gon

1년365일 홍길동 신공

Il-nyeon sam-baek-yuk-ship-o-il hong-gil-dong shin-gong

내 폰은 계속 울어대 갓난 애 마냥

Nae pon-eun gye-sok ul-eo-dae gat-nan ae ma-nyang

내 폰은 계속 짖어대 옆집 개 마냥

Nae pun-eun gye-sok jij-eo-dae yeop-jin gae ma-nyang

Bow wow wow yeppie-yo-yeppie-ye

자뻑에 허세 甲 아주 뻔뻔해

Ja-bbeok-e heo-se jia a-ju bbeon-bbeon-hae

I’m so fresh so clean 세탁소랑 경쟁해

I’m so fresh so clean se-tak-so-rang gyeong-jaeng-hae

And my flow so sick 중환자실 연행해 WHAT

And my flow so sick jung-hwan-ja-shil yeon-haeng-hae WHAT

 

This is my Coup D’e Tat

입에서 입으로 도는 부메랑

Ib-e-seo ib-eu-ro do-neun bu-me-rang

People
The revolution will not be televised
The revolution is in your mind
The revolution is here

This is my Coup D’e Tat
A boomerang going around from mouth to mouth
Hands up get high
The song is starting, I’m the tagger

Go on and hide carefully because I might see you
I’m the new boiler that was put in your father’s home1
Yes, this is a spoiler, I’m so fly, scary, I’m a F killer2
A gorilla who steals the hearts of women
Bang bang bang, I make money with my teeth
With just one of my songs, you can leave your company
I’m a swindler in this game
You’re a con artists because you’ll never know what fame is

This is my Coup D’e Tat
A boomerang going around from mouth to mouth
Hands up get high
The song is starting, I’m the tagger

If time is money then I’m very poor
I’m like Hong Kil Dong all year, 365 days3
My phone keeps crying like a newborn baby
My phone keeps barking like the next-door dog
Bow wow wow yeppie-yo-yeppie-ye
They call me cocky, stuck-up, thick-faced
I’m so fresh so clean, I compete with the laundromat
And my flow so sick, it goes to the intensive care unit, what

This is my Coup D’e Tat
A boomerang going around from mouth to mouth
Hands up get high
The song is starting, I’m the tagger

Head, shoulders, knees and toes, swag check, mic check
One, two, three, four, I’m like pacman who eats up MCs
Head, shoulders, knees and toes, swag check, mic check
One, two, three, four, this is the gospel, amen
Ay you want some, you want some more It’s not enough
(Becoming ordinary is my only not-allowed rule)
Ay give me some, give some more alright y’all
(Dull guys imitating me is not allowed)

This is my Coup D’e Tat
A boomerang going around from mouth to mouth
Hands up get high
The song is starting, I’m the tagger

This is my Coup D’e Tat
A boomerang going around from mouth to mouth
Hands up get high
The song is starting, I’m the tagger

This is my Coup D’e Tat
A boomerang going around from mouth to mouth
Hands up get high
The song is starting, the song is over

 

Hangeul: music daum
Translation: Pop! Gasa

Note from Pop! Gasa:
1This is a line from a famous commercial in Korea. GD is referring himself as a boiler because he’s so “hot.”
2Word play using the word “fly.” He says he’s so fly, as in the slang, but also refers to F-Killer, which is a bug spray.
3 Hong Kil Dong is the Korean Robin Hood and he uses the reference to portray how busy he is (taking the previous line of saying he would be poor if time was money, since he has no time and is a very busy person) because there is a saying that Hong Kil Dong would go from the west sea to the east sea in a very short time.
