ITZY – DALLA DALLA (English Ver.) (Lyrics)

Yuna | Chaeryeong | Ryujin | Lia | Yeji

Da-dalla dalla dalla¹
Da-dalla dalla dalla

People look at me, and they tell me
You need to tone it down ‘cause you look like you’re trouble (oh no)
So what? Don’t give a damn, I’m sorry, I don’t care, don’t care
Really don’t care b-b-b-because

Don’t need Prince Charming, ain’t got time for love
Yeah, I’m just out here looking for some fun
Unnies² all over me, they say I’m young and naive (I’m sorry sorry)
I’m never gonna grow up (nope)

Don’t bring me down ‘cause I dare to be different
I’m a little dalla dalla dalla (da-dalla dalla)
Not gonna change who I am for your comfort
So watch and learn, I’ll show you what I’m about (da-dalla dalla dalla)

[Ryujin/All] I love myself (hey!), ’cause I’m so dalla dalla, yeah (oh oh oh)
[Lia/All] I love myself (hey!), ’cause I’m so dalla dalla, yeah
Yeah, I’m so dalla dalla (yeah)

Bad, bad, I’m sorry I’m bad, I’m just the way I am
Too busy carpe diem-ing all day, drown out the haters they’ll never dictate
My life (my life), you better check yourself, malli-ji-ma³ (malli-ji-ma)
‘Cause I’m one of a kind, yeah

Look in the mirror, loving what I see
Don’t hold me back, ‘cause I’m just living free
Unnies all up in arms, ‘cause they say I’m rude and too blunt (I’m sorry sorry)
I’m never gonna change me (nope)

Don’t bring me down ‘cause I dare to be different
I’m a little dalla dalla dalla (da-dalla dalla)
Not gonna change who I am for your comfort
So watch and learn, I’ll show you what I’m about (da-dalla dalla dalla)

Don’t care what people say, I got nothing to prove
I’m talking to myself, don’t you let it get to you
So shake it off, look up to the sky, just keep on dreaming, whoa~

Keep your chin up, we got your back (hey!)
Keep your head up, just keep on dreaming (yeah!)
Keep your chin up, we got your back (hey!)
Keep your head up, just keep on dreaming
(Errbody)

Don’t bring me down ‘cause I dare to be different
I’m a little dalla dalla dalla (da-dalla dalla)
Not gonna change who I am for your comfort
So watch and learn, I’ll show you what I’m about (da-dalla dalla dalla)

[Yeji/All] I love myself (hey!), ’cause I’m so dalla dalla, yeah (oh oh oh)
[Lia/All] I love myself (hey!), ’cause I’m so dalla dalla, yeah
Yeah, I’m so dalla dalla (yeah)

¹ Dalla (달라 / dal-la) means “different”.
² Unnies (언니들이 / eon-ni-deul-i) literally means the “older sisters” of a female. In addition, Koreans also use the term to refer to any older females (mostly, when they feel somewhat comfortable with the person). (source)
³ “Mallijima” (말리지 마 / mal-li-ji ma) is the iconic Yeji’s line in the Korean version of ‘DALLA DALLA’, where she sings: “My life 내 맘대로 살 거야 말리지 마” (my life nae mam-dae-ro sal geo-ya mal-li-ji ma / my life I will live my own way don’t you care).
