“Wild Rose” lyrics as performed by Jang Sa-ik

(translated from the Korean by geul)

Watch the performance here.

White rose, wild rose
humble rose, wild rose
sad like a star, wild rose
sorrowing like the moon, wild rose

The scent of the wild rose
is too, too sad
and so I cried,
let myself go and wept

The scent of the wild rose
is too, too sad
and so I cried,
all night long I cried

[instrumental interlude]

White rose, wild rose
humble rose, wild rose
sad like a star, wild rose
sorrowing like the moon, wild rose

The scent of the wild rose
is too, too sad
and so I cried,
let myself go and wept

The scent of the wild rose
is too, too sad
and so I cried,
all night long I cried

Ah!
Cried like the wild rose
Sang like the wild rose
Danced like the wild rose
Loved like the wild rose
Lived like the wild rose
Cried like the wild rose
You, wild rose

Cried like the wild rose

(This translation was prompted by a blog post on Ask a Korean.)
