Lyrics

I know that
My baby I love you
I gotta get over you,
that’s right that’s right (my heart)
JoJo

거봐 그녈 좀 봐
나쯤이야 잊는 건 쉽다고
믿고 싶지 않아 oh~ ah~
잠이 오지 않는 밤
머리 아픈 이 짓이 너무 지겨워
무릎 꿇고 가슴치고
울어봐도 도
안 되는 건 안 되니

JoJo 슬픈 음악이 흐를 때
널 생각해 (eh eh eh)
JoJo 잔인한 너는 왜
지워지지 않냐고 (oh oh oh)
Hey My JoJo Love yes JoJo
Stay 뭘 잘못했니 I I was blind
Hey My JoJo Love yes JoJo
Stay 두 눈에 밟혀 I I was blind

So many nights I wonder why
What can I do to make it right
Everything will be alright
So JoJo just tell me why

울고 싶진 않아 oh~ ah~
깊이 할퀴어 버린 맘
머리 아픈 이 짓이 너무 지겨워
취해봐도 그 취한 속을 비워봐도 도
안 되는 건 안되니

JoJo 이 쓴 음악이 멈출 때
널 보낼래 (eh eh eh)
JoJo 잔인한 너는 왜
지워지지 않냐고 (oh oh oh)
Hey My JoJo Love yes JoJo
Stay 뭘 잘못했니 I I was blind
Hey My JoJo Love yes JoJo
Stay 난 모르겠어 아 아직도

Baby JoJo 넌 아니
이리도 차가운 Heart
Baby Baby 왜 갔니
울다 지쳐 깨는 꿈

JoJo 슬픈 음악이 흐를 때
널 생각해 (eh eh eh)
JoJo 잔인한 너는 왜
지워지지 않냐고
JoJo 이 쓴 음악이 멈출 때
널 보낼래 (eh eh eh)
JoJo 잔인한 너는 왜
지워지지 않니
않냐고 (oh oh oh)
Hey My JoJo Love yes JoJo
Stay 뭘 잘못했니 I I was blind
Hey My JoJo Love yes JoJo
Stay 두 눈에 밟혀 I I was blind

Translation

I know that
My baby I love you
I gotta get over you
That’s right, that’s right (my heart)
JoJo

Look, look at her
Saying it’s easy to forget someone like me
I don’t want to believe her oh~ ah~
This sleepless night
I’m so sick of this headache
Even if I beg on my knees, pound my chest
and cry
What was never to happen will not happen

JoJo, when the sad music plays
I think of you (eh eh eh)
JoJo, why can’t I forget you
even though you were so cruel (oh oh oh)
Hey my JoJo Love yes JoJo
Stay, did I do something wrong? I I was blind
Hey my JoJo Love yes JoJo
Stay, you’re in my tracks, I I was blind

So many nights I wonder why
What can I do to make it right
Everything will be alright
So JoJo just tell me why

I don’t want to cry oh~ ah~
My heart was cut deep and cast aside
I’m so sick of this headache
Even if I fill it up and empty it again
What was never to happen will not happen

JoJo, when this bitter music ends
I’ll send you away (eh eh eh)
JoJo why can’t I forget you
even though you were so cruel (oh oh oh)
Hey my JoJo Love yes JoJo
Stay, did I do something wrong? I I was blind
Hey my JoJo Love yes JoJo
Stay, I still don’t understand

Baby JoJo, do you know
this cold heart
Baby baby why did you leave?
From this dream I wake up in tears

JoJo, when the sad music plays
I think of you (eh eh eh)
JoJo, why can’t I forget you
even though you were so cruel (oh oh oh)
JoJo, when this bitter music ends
I’ll send you away (eh eh eh)
JoJo, why can’t I forget you
even though you were cruel
Why can’t I (oh oh oh)
Hey my JoJo Love yes JoJo
Stay, did I do something wrong? I I was blind
Hey my JoJo Love yes JoJo
Stay, you’re in my tracks, I I was blind

    can i just admit that i’m a loser & say that i do not like this jojo person, & if i ever met her i would be a very violent fangirl?

    that seriously was my first thought lol but then i realized, hey, the boys didn’t write this, a lyricist did, so get a grip of yourself.

    i don’t get the step on my eyes part. prolly some metaphor i don’t understand, but correct me if i’m wrong, it’s rare that any korean song actually features a certain name & is addressed to the person? like in english songs there’s “comeon eileen”, “got me on my knees layla”, “stacy’s mum has got it going on” etc lol i’m intrigued by this song now. i really gotta get listening to the album.

    • Grace says:

      haha. I’m sure that this Jo Jo person is supposed to be a substitute for ALL the girls in the world. It doesn’t stop me from being supremely curious as to where the influence came from though…🙂

      And I had to change the “step on my eyes” part because it was bugging me too much. I’m going to go with my interpreted meaning, as I usually do.🙂

  2. isabel says:

    thanks for the translation, this is one of the few songs i really like in the album❤
    who is this JoJo person? i was really surprised when they used that name.
    maybe JoJo is just another coined name for a lover?
    like the way SNSD in a way made up “Gee” for a first love (correct me if I’m wrong) [:

  3. Carmen says:

    I swear I reverted back to being a preteen when I heard this and instantly hated whoever JoJo was. What are you doing to me SHINee? Joking aside, I’d probably like this song more if JoJo wasn’t repeated so freaking much. Adding a name to make the lyrics more concrete is fine but when it’s used in nearly every single line, it gets annoying real fast.

    And thanks for translating and making me hate JoJo more😀

    • Grace says:

      It is sad that my first instinct was to think “psh, who does this Jojo think she is, messing with SHINee like this” I should be more mature, right? I guess being a fangirl brings out the pettiness in all of us.

      (Still, down with Jojo!)

    • SHINee says:

      actually jojo means sweetheart or sth like that in korean, that’s what I heard. a misunderstanding.

  4. Vivienne says:

  7. Kimmy says:

  18. Norah says:

    SHINee aja aja fighting!!!!

  19. JoJo says:

    I lovee this song JoJo

  20. 애인 says:

    Just a thought here…
    The name is written JoJo…as if two words smashed together (Jo Jo). Now, I don’t in anyway think that the person in charge of the lyrics would’ve known enough variations and dialects of English to come up with this, but ‘Jo’ does exist in English…specially in Scotland a ‘sweetheart’ or bf/gf can be referred to as ‘Jo’.
    Also, my electronic Korean dictionary translates (English-Korean) Jo – 애인 (lover, sweetheart).

    This was just a funny thought and I doubt it…but that would explain the weirdness of having a (Korean) song addressed to a (named)person, instead of a ‘thing’ (lover).
    Who knows. n.n

    Too much analyzing just ruins the song, me thinks.
    Jojo is a catchy name/word, simple and memorable…that’s what songs (specially upbeat ones need).

    Anyway, very nice and catchy song!
    Good job with the translation!

  21. uRr MYy AdDiiCtIoN says:

  25. Soyuri^^ says:

    SHINee!!!
    Whoever this Jojo is I’m ready to kill her!!!!
    But then again, my name is Jojo…
    I feel the need to blame myselff for their heartache…

    • YUNNiE says:

      Its Okeiii…
      Ms. Soyuri…
      My English Name Is Jojo, too…
      You Know What We Should Make A Pact To Kill The Real Jojo!!!!
      hahahahaha…
      BEWARE: ALL SHINee Fans Will Kill Jojo If She Is Real!!!!!

  26. I says:

    just a comment on the Jojo-thing, you don’t think that Jojo is a nickname for juliette?

    • soheexsarang says:

      i think it’s a nickname, but how they get a “o” from juliette 0.o…
      maybe it was “JUJU” -[sounded weird so became]- “JOJO”
      kinda makes sense

  27. love SHINee! says:

    MY JOJO! MY JOJO! MY JOJO!

    LOVE IT! LOVE SHINEE~ ;))

  28. jijie says:

  30. SHINee'sGirlz says:

    LOL…i love this song!!!! I think Jojo is like……american music uses shawty a lot….

  31. GASP says:

    okay when i first heard this song.. i was like JoJo? and i immediately thought of jojo the singer… the one who sang too little too late… and then i was like WHATTTTT? is that a word in korean?? LOL so i read the translations and found out it was a name😀 ANYWAYS I LOVVEE THIS SONG😀 SOOO CATCHYYYY❤ thanks for teh translations😀

  32. shawolwonderland says:

    This song is kinda sad. ):
    Oh, wait. It IS sad.
    But the tune is awesome.

    In my own interpretation of the song, it’s like the girl (Jojo) had some terminal disease and left the guy. But after the guy realized that she passed away, he got angry because she didn’t tell him about his problems. Because they say “When the bitter music stops, I will send you away.” Which I kinda think it means he’ll let her go.

    Idk, just my own opinion.

  33. Jessica_Minho Shawol says:

    This song means a lot to me …. this song describes the feeling I am now … I really liked Shinee….

  34. soheexsarang says:

    “JOJO” ~ hmmm…they really should have done a music video..I had my box of tissues already T.T

    this would be the storyline:
    they all fall in love with a girl, she gets cancer, breaks up with them before the surgery, and then there are bunch of scenes showing shinee crying and throwing things and breaking things and more crying maybe looking at pic then burning the memories…blah blah blah…
    Then, at the very very end of the mv, they find out why she broke up with them, and go to the hospital, to find out that she died, and the last scene is at the graveyard..T.T
    (what do u think?? T.T)

    as for “jojo”, it sounds like a cute nickname they gave a girl, but isn’t her REAL name, since the way they say it sounds so cute….(though she broke their heart)…
    I always do that, take one part of the name and just repeat it like bellbells (for my sister)

  35. SHINee says:

    I have talked to SHINee before.
    and some of them have liked some girls at that time.
    So I think its them
    but i don’t think it was MADE for them because SM made it for them to sing.
    but in their hearts, I think it was dedicated to those lucky girls🙂

  36. Onew&Minho_lover says:

    I LOVE THIS SONG❤
    I wonder who Jojo is,lol my cousin is called Jojo maybe it’s about her
    lol
    i’m only joking :L
    Onew&Minho are the best ♥
