Epik High (feat. Taeyang of Big Bang) – RICH

She wanted to fly like a bird
So she bought an airplane ticket
He wanted to place the sky and ocean in his hands
So he bought a big globe
Everyone places a price tag on their dreams
But no matter how much you spend, the shopping cart of your heart keeps growing
People buy things even as they loan money
But is it too wasteful to live as you dream?
You’re looking for an answer, where your pocket is
Baby, you don’t even know what the problem is
Your bucket list is your shopping list
But the life you miss
You take proof photos but you make no memories
You can endure hunger but not pain
Your stomach is like a popular song, easily full and easily hungry again1

I wish. I wish. I wish. I was rich.
Baby I wish. I wish. I wish. I was rich.
My Drive Rules Everything Around Me.
Dream.

My friend buys, sells, measures and puts a price on his dreams and ideas
Even if his bank account is shaky, his pride never shakes
No, it’s a bidentity
No stamp in your passport but your fashion is New York and Paris
Your life is a photo shoot
Every neighborhood, campus, workplace, wherever
They all go around looking for gold, young boys and golden ladies
Well, I guess I’m jealous
Well, I’m just jealous
Well, I guess I lost
Well, I guess I lost
I’m a guy who only dreams on the weekends
When Saturday comes, I grip onto a lottery scratch ticket
Even on party Fridays, writing down numbers and in line to pay
My childhood dream was always in a factory
But now it’s in convenience stores

I wish. I wish. I wish. I was rich.
I want to live without worries
Baby I wish. I wish. I wish. I was rich.
I want to live like I’m human

As much as you make
As much as you spend
Is you happy?
As much as you make
As much as you spend
Are you happy?
‘Cause baby, I wish I was.

I wish. I wish I was rich.
Baby I wish. I wish I was rich.

Put your gold up in the air.
Put your diamonds in the air.
And wave ‘em like you just don’t
care.

‘Cause baby, I wish I was.
I wish. I wish. I wish. I was rich.
Baby I wish. I wish. I wish. I was rich.
My Drive Rules Everything Around Me.

‘Cause baby, I wish I was.
‘Cause baby, I wish I was.
Rich, rich, rich. Yeah.
‘Cause baby, I wish I was.
‘Cause baby, I wish I was.
Rich.

I want to be rich of heart
But I can’t open my wallet so I keep spending my heart

‘Cause baby, I wish I was.
‘Cause baby, I wish I was.
Rich, rich, rich. Yeah.
‘Cause baby, I wish I was.
‘Cause baby, I wish I was.


1 Another way of saying “easily full and easily hungry again” can be “easy to sing and easy to turn off”

Hoping to be a bridge between k-pop music & k-pop fans who don't understand the Korean language.
