스몰오 (Small o) – That Will Fall lyrics [Hangeul, Romanization & Translation]

This song reminds me of a folk song! With almost fairy tale-like lyrics, singing about an ousted king, dancing donkey, and nature seems to come alive alongside the pauper prince and farmer’s daughter. The MV itself sees the members jamming together with the shadow of paper animals occasionally dash through the music sheet. I hope I get the translation accurate enough for you to learn the meaning behind the song 🙂

스몰오 (Seumol o/Small o) – That Will Fall

쫓겨난 왕 지저귀는 새 작은 연못가는 출렁거리고

Jjot-gyeo-nana wang ji-jeo-gwi-neun sae jak-eun yeon-mot-ga-neun chul-lyeong-geo-ri-go

당나귀가 리듬을 타 모두 모여 나와 함께 춤을 춰

Dang-ni-gwi-ga ri-deum-eul ta mo-du mo-yeo na-wa ham-gge chum-eul chweo

 

That will fall

That will fall

 

꽃들의 향 단숨에 난 취한 말들처럼 덩실거리고

Ggot-deul-eui hyang dan-sum-e nan chwi-han mal-deul-cheo-reom deong-sil-geo-ri-go

당나귀와 리듬을 타 모두 함께 춤을 추며 노래해

Dang-na-gwi-wa ri-deum-eul ta mo-du ham-gge chum-eul chu-myeo no-rae-hae

 

That will fall

That will fall

That will fall

That will fall

 

울창한 숲 춤추는 땅 호숫가에 둘러앉은 숭어떼

Ul-chang-han sup chum-chu-neun ddang ho-sut-ga-e dul-leo-anj-eun sung-eo-dde

거지왕자 농부의 딸 전진하듯 두발 맞춰 나갈 때

Geo-ji-wang-ja nong-bu-eui ddal jeon-jin-ha-deut du-bal mat-chweo ni-gal ddae

 

That will fall

That will fall

That will fall

That will fall

That will fall

 

Translation

The king was ousted, the small bird chirps
The pond keeps rippling
The donkey and others are all gathered,
dancing to the rhythm together with me

That will fall
That will fall

Breathing in the scent of flowers at once,
I keep drinking it happily like I was told to
The donkey and others are all gathered,
dancing and singing to the rhythm together

That will fall
That will fall
That will fall
That will fall

The lush forest, the earth is dancing by the lake shore
A herd of mullets surrounds me as I sit
The pauper prince and the farmer’s daughter march on
Adjusting his hair as he exits

That will fall
That will fall
That will fall
That will fall

Hangeul: music daum
