Lyrics: Ji Hyun Woo “Baby Elephant” and “She is My Love”

JHW crescendo cover

Because I have a hard time saying no…and because I think the girls who requested this want me to hop on the JHW-YIN ship…

I have translated two songs by Ji Hyun Woo upon their request. Just gathering it into one post here.

Ji Hyun Woo- “Baby Elephant” ( from his solo album “Crescendo”)

Child’s voice saying “Baby elephant”

How can I hate you?
How can I not find you pretty?
How can I break up with you?
How can I not love you?

Those times when I get angry at you,
those times when I complain,
and those times when I become petty…
It’s because I love you so much.

Because in my eyes you are so wonderful,
and because in my eyes you are so lovable…
That’s why I nagged you.

Because in my eyes you are like a child,
Because in my eyes you are so pure,
and because I worried and worried…
That’s why I nagged you.

Children’s voices “Ya-ya-ya…”

How can I hate you?
How can I not find you pretty?
How can I break up with you?
How can I not love you?

Those times when I get angry at you,
those times when I complain,
and those times when I become petty…
It’s because I love you so much.

I’m not usually this type of person.
I’m only like this to you.
Because of you, I have changed so much.
Stay by my side like this,
I will live more for you.
Only if you are by my side will my heart… beat.

Because I will suit you so well,
and because you will respect me so much..
That is why I will receive only love from you.

Because I will be so charming to you,
and because I will look so sexy to you..
Someone you will always want to see and touch…
I will become that kind of man for you.

Children’s voices “Ya-ya-ya…”
Child’s voice: Please stop now…

Live performance clip. He does a butt shake at around 3:40.

The Nuts (the band that Ji Hyun Woo is a part of)- “She is My Love”

I wanted to meet you. So it is you.
The person who shook her heart.
You can laugh at me for my foolishness.
I know it’s shameless but I beg on my knees in front of you.

She is my love. She is my life.
I beg you. I beg you. Don’t shake her.
She is my everything. I will fall apart without her.
Help me. Please leave.
You will be able to live without her. I won’t.

Yes, I don’t have anything.
Compared to you, I am nothing
But even if I have to sell my tears,
I will make her happy.

She is my everything. I will fall apart without her.
Help me. Please leave.
You will be able to live without her. I won’t.

If you want my eyes, you can take it.
If you want my heart, you can take it.
If you want my breath, you can take that too.

Just not her, just not her.
Please don’t take her away.
Don’t make me cry.

I love her only. I really love her.
One person, one love.
I am a man who is able to breathe because I have her.

    Baby Elephant lyric is a love confession? And JHW sang it to YIN? And she said it’s her favorite of all three songs.

    Btw, what’s the relation between the title and lyric? I’m a bit confused here.

    Anyway, thank you for the lyric *grin*

      As far as I know, there is a children’s song called “Baby Elephant Walk” in Korea that describes the stumbling walk of elephant taking its first steps. I think the title is trying to express that same feeling of uncertainty but strong will that is present in love.

  4. Thanks! He is a very interesting person, isn’t he? I hope he gets to do that Entertainment part of the military like LJK did. We got to see LOTS of photos of him during his service.

    I just got a mental image of uri JHW all bald and in camos. GASP! He is really leaving.

  5. Joonni, thanks you do such a great job. I came on this site by chance but so glad I did. Loved the translation of the songs but find I really just like listening and not knowing the words. Korean songs…sound so beautiful. Glad the ladies asked you to do JHW songs. This young entertainer seems to be able to do it all. Hope he, like Rain get to be in the entainment sector of the Korean military. July 3rd will be a sad day for all of his fans.

  6. let’s enjoy these stuffs first, before thinking about him leaving soon.
    thanks joonni!!

    *will scatter this link everywhere *

    WAHH!! I WAS LOOKING FOR THESE EVERYWHERE!!! Thank you~~~~ You’re totally and completely awesome. ^^ This album has been on repeat for ages but I never knew what he was saying beyond like, 20 words.

    If I get off my lazy butt and actually sub stuff, could I use your lyrics and credit them to you? ^_^

      Also. Do you know anywhere to find lyrics or translations to JHW’s other two songs from Crescendo? (I’ve been looking for those everywhere too….)

      June 8, 2012
      • joonni #

        Yes, you could use the translation.

        I haven’t been able to find any translated lyrics for the other songs.

    “He does a butt shake at around 3:40.”

    LOL. How much do I love you right now? ^^

      I second that. Joonni has been a beacon of light through this journey~
      ….how exquisitely non-sexy/dorky is that butt shake?
      I want to hold him by the shoulders and say, “No. boo.—-just no. trust me on this.”

      so…squishable. …want.

        I love that little butt shake more than this sexy back performance. So adorable.

    I like this song baby elephant, because the genre of this song is more lovely with the cheerful, just like your smile is as warm as July 3 to go to military service in Taiwan, I support you.

    I love this! Thank you. The lyrics seem to reflect a pretty sincere, down-to-earth person who speaks what he feels and thinks🙂

      Actually except for the last para, may be it can be tweaked as a song to a child?

    I saw the baby elephant on Utube. I ve subscribed your channel. The lyrics is so special. it makes girl want to be his girlfriend haha
    I like the music. It’s quite simple. You can play with your guitar and it’s Ok! . But I think the music it’s not such a popular mainstream in K-Pop nowadays. Is the album sold well in Korea?

    • joonni #

      I don’t think it sold too well in Korea because generally, album sales are low. Especially for music like Ji Hyun Woo’s.

    i was just thinking…i hope someone has a clue😄

    when HW guested on this music show (around March 2012 i think), he said Baby Elephant was written for his GF. But wasn’t Crescendo released last Nov 2011? So I’m assuming he had a GF then until March right?

    Then he admitted he loves YIN around June 2012 (I think they started filing QIHM around april?) Now my question actually is…I wonder if that GF whom he wrote Baby Elephant for is another girl or it’s YIN already? ^^

    I actually wish the song is for YIN😄 besides, during HW interview in YIN radio show, YIN can still remember their first meeting; while HW was the one who requested YIN to be Queen In Hyun!~ ^^
