Epik High – Olympics 2008 Cheer Lyrics and Translation

Bonus Song: 2008 Beijing Olympics Cheer

I was not excited for the Olympics this year. All the controversy over China and human rights and such had me down. I wanted to watch my regular programming, but did you know that there is nothing on when the Olympics happen except for reruns of South Park?! Capitalism at its best, I tell ya.

Also, I realized that I always cheer for Korea. Even when its Korea v. USA its always “DAE HAN MIN GOOK!!!” I always thought that was odd, considering I lived in the US way longer than I lived in Korea. 

I guess you cant deny your blood.

Lyrics

K.O.R.E.A!

생각되로 되는 것이 없다고
목표가 멀어져가고
달리다 지칠때
우리 함성이 널 지킬게
so fly fly get em up high
생각하는 대로 되니까
you are the one
어둠속에서도
빛나는 거대한 sun

금나와라 뚝딱
금메달이 되고 (되고)
은나와라 뚝딱
은메달이 되고 (되고)
메달 못따도
최선 다했으면 되고
(되고 되고)
올림픽 생각대로 하면 되고
(생각대로 하면 돼!)

대한민국!
지구촌 안에서는 작지만
큰나라 한반도
우리 물결로
거리를 가득 메워
다시 대단한 감동-아래
꿈은 이뤄지니까
우리는 당신들을 지키니까
당신과 나 우리 열정으로
하나되어 달려가자

금나와라 뚝딱
금메달이 되고 (되고)
은나와라 뚝딱
은메달이 되고 (되고)
메달 못따도
최선 다했으면 되고
(되고 되고)
올림픽 생각대로 하면 되고
(생각대로 하면 돼!)

Translation

K.O.R.E.A!

They say nothing goes the way you plan
That your goals will become further away
But if you run and become tired,
our cries will protect you
So fly fly get em up high
Because things will happen how you want
You are the one
The gigantic sun that shines in the darkness

Go for the gold, and look!
We win the gold medal (it happens)
Go for the silver, and look!
We win the silver medal ( it happens)
Even if you don’t win a medal
as long as you did your best It’s okay
(okay okay)
As long as you do it in the Olympic way
(Do it the way you want!)

Republic of Korea!
Geographically it may be small
but our great Korean peninsula
Makes up any shortcomings
with our torrent of energy!
Again in the deeply moving emotions
Because dreams do come true
We are protecting you
Our passions will make us one,
lets run to the goal!

Go for the gold, and look!
We win the gold medal (it happens)
Go for the silver, and look!
We win the silver medal ( it happens)
Even if you don’t win a medal
as long as you did your best It’s okay
(okay okay)
As long as you do it in the Olympic way
(Do it the way you want!)
