EXO-M – MAMA Lyrics [中字 + Pinyin + Translation]

Okay the narration for this MV seriously threw me off for a bit… And the beginning is quite strange, with all 12 of EXO standing in a cult-like fashion wearing cult clothing mumbling cult-like words. Otherwise I like it🙂 The crazy makeup for the rapping part was interesting, and I could at least tell who was Tao and who was Kris (oh nvm I totally did not see Xiumin there, not even with his incorrect pronunciation >.>), unlike in the Korean one where I thought I only saw Kai (and I think he was the only one who was rapping and not Chanyeol). Also great note by Chen and D.O in the beginning of the songs🙂

I got the lyrics from the Chinese MV.

Please credit me if you take these out by linking back, thank you!

Chen Lu Han Lay Kris Tao Xiumin All

[All] Careless, careless, shoot anonymous, anonymous
Heartless, mindless, no one who care about me?

[Chen] 失落的感觉 谁在乎只有忍耐 我再也无法接受 闭上了双眼 yeah~

[Luhan] MAMA 可不可以请告诉我 为什么人会变得不一样
那些听说过的美丽日子是真的存在过吗
[Lay] 早就忘了应该要更努力爱着他 早就忘了心去包容他
自顾自的生活是否假装继续忙

[All] 隐形在你的面具背后充满许多的表情 到最后却始终如一
[Chen] 真的更好吗
[All] 我们要这样 不再看彼此的眼神吗
不再对我讲话吗 不再说你爱我吗
就算受了伤 眼泪也如雨的下
改变就能解答 改变就能到达 告诉我 MAMA MAMA

[Kris] 都忘了什么时候开始我们被关在聪明里头
[Tao] 我的世界只在零和一的制作中度过
[Xiumin] 没有生命力 没感情 每天毫无根据
[Kris+Tao+Xiumin] 越久就更寂寞 只有自己受伤难过

[Chen] 相遇和牵手 感受泪和笑容
越贴近的频率 我们开心感应 可能回来吗

[All] 隐形在你的面具背后充满许多的表情 到最后却始终如一
[Chen] 这样真的更好吗
[All] 我们要这样 不再看彼此的眼神吗
不再对我讲话吗 不再说你爱我吗
就算受了伤 眼泪也如雨的下
改变就能解答 改变就能到达 告诉我 MAMA MAMA

[Xiumin] Turn back!

最后我怒吼 我狂奔 我回温 不想要世界变的冷
[All] 请帮帮我 MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMA turn back
告诉我 MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMA rolling back
[Kris] 追逐 失控 看谁都很冷漠 游戏不会这样做
[All] 请帮帮我 MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMA turn back
[Kris+Chen] Yeah

[All] Careless, careless (MAMA), shoot anonymous, anonymous (MAMA)
Heartless, mindless (MAMA), no one who care about me? (MAMA)

[Luhan] 因为受到了祝福 我能感觉到真的快乐 多想要每天认识更多的人
[Chen] 把碎了的心重温 只要有爱的单纯 找回我原本笑容里的真~

[All] 我们要这样 不再看彼此的眼神吗
不再对我讲话吗 不再说你爱我吗
就算受了伤 眼泪也如雨的下
改变就能解答 改变就能到达 告诉我 MAMA MAMA

[Chen] Feeling lost, no one wants to endure this, I can’t stand it anymore so I close my eyes, yeah~

[Luhan] MAMA can you please tell me, why do people turn out different
Did those beautiful days I heard about really happen?
[Lay] I forgot long ago I should have loved more earnestly, how to forgive with all my heart
Caring only for our own lives, do we keep going like nothing happened?

[All] Hidden behind your mask there are many expressions, but it remains the same until the end
[Chen] Is it really for the better?
[All] Are we going to be like this, not looking each other in the eye?
Not talking to me anymore, not telling me you love me anymore?
Even if I get hurt, the tears still fall like rain
Changing can solve it, changing can help me get there, tell me MAMA MAMA

[Kris] We all forgot the time from when we became trapped by our own wits
[Tao] I spend my life on the creation of zeros and ones
[Xiumin] No will to live, no emotions, no reason for anything everyday
[Kris+Tao+Xiumin] The longer it lasts the more lonely I get, only I myself get hurt and become sad

[Chen] Meeting and holding your hand, experiencing tears and smiles
The more in tune we are, the more happy we feel, can we go back to that?

[All] Hidden behind your mask there are many expressions, but it remains the same until the end
[Chen] Is it really for the better like this?
[All] Are we going to be like this, not looking each other in the eye?
Not talking to me anymore, not telling me you love me anymore?
Even if I get hurt, the tears still fall like rain
Changing can solve it, changing can help me get there, tell me MAMA MAMA

[Xiumin] Turn back!

At last I cry angrily, I run crazily, I remember, I don’t want the world to turn cold
[All] Please help me MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMA turn back
Tell me MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMA rolling back
[Kris] Chasing, losing control, I look at others with coldness, but this shouldn’t be a game
[All] Please help me MAMA MAMA MAMA MAMA turn back
[Kris+Chen] Yeah

[All] Careless, careless (MAMA), shoot anonymous, anonymous (MAMA)
Heartless, mindless (MAMA), no one who care about me? (MAMA)

[Luhan] Because I received happiness, I could feel real joy, wanting to meet new people everyday
[Chen] Warm up my broken heart again, I only need the pureness of love to find the truth in my old smile~

[All] Are we going to be like this, not looking each other in the eye?
Not talking to me anymore, not telling me you love me anymore?
Even if I get hurt, the tears still fall like rain
Changing can solve it, changing can help me get there, tell me MAMA MAMA

Careless, careless, shoot anonymous, anonymous
Heartless, mindless, no one who care about me?

    thanks! I love this song and Chen!

  2. anonymous says:

    the way luhan sings is the best voice ever heard by me. perfect pronouncation on chinese,yet i knew he’s chinese, esp. north china.

  3. summertwinkle says:

    I also thought hui wen was remember but I searched the web and didn’t really notice anyone using it that way. Because it looks a lot like hui yi (回忆), and in Cantonese, wen zap (温習) is how we say studying (or review)…though I think the proper written words are actually fu xi (复习). So add hui yi + wen zap and you get remember😄. At least that was my thought process.

    But I think 回温 means literally return + warmth…which still makes sense since the next line is “I don’t want the world to be come cold” or something along that line. But it’s a very unusual word pairing.

    Though correct me if I’m wrong. I am totally outdated on any slangs or new word usage. My only source of Chinese is song lyrics and manga lol.

    I think your translation is pretty smooth but it includes your a lot of your interpretation of the lyrics in it. I’m trying to work on one with less bias and more literal…but it’s hard to make the grammar work😄. I also have my own interpretation too that I want to write. This song is intriguing me too much.

      I’m a native Chinese speaker and I can’t even translate 回温 in a good way >< It makes sense you interpreted the meaning to be related to warmth but it really is not anything close to return + warmth… The literal meaning is that, but usually in context it means something more like reminisce or remembering the old times. It's really hard to say what they meant within this song's context though… it doesn't make much sense to me.
      Honestly in any translation it's hard to not put your own interpretation of the lyrics, since only the writer only knows the exact meaning. And even then it's not the "only" meaning, because things like lyrics are open to interpretation just like books are.
      Anyways thanks for the input!
