      The song is characterized by its strongly addictive beats and lyrics, and is thus certain to penetrate the foundations of modern philosophy.

      How can something that feels so right be so wrong?

      So apparently Gangnam is an upper class part of Seoul, similar to Hollywood. The girls there tend to be prim and proper during the day, but wild child partiers at night. This song is displaying the fact that he is also a classy dude, but knows how to party as well, and he wants to get himself a Gangnam girl.

      Here ya go:

      Oppa is Gangnam style
      Gangnam style

      A girl who is warm and humanle during the day
      A classy girl who know how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee
      A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes
      A girl with that kind of twist

      I知 a guy
      A guy who is as warm as you during the day
      A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down
      A guy whose heart bursts when night comes
      That kind of guy

      Beautiful, loveable
      Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
      Beautiful, loveable
      Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
      Now let痴 go until the end

      Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
      Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
      Oppa is Gangnam style


      Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
      Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

      A girl who looks quiet but plays when she plays
      A girl who puts her hair down when the right time comes
      A girl who covers herself but is more sexy than a girl who bares it all
      A sensable girl like that

      I知 a guy
      A guy who seems calm but plays when he plays
      A guy who goes completely crazy when the right time comes
      A guy who has bulging ideas rather than muscles
      That kind of guy

      Beautiful, loveable
      Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
      Beautiful, loveable
      Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
      Now let痴 go until the end

      Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
      Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
      Oppa is Gangnam style

      Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
      Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

      On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
      I知 a man who knows a thing or two
      On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
      I知 a man who knows a thing or two

      You know what I知 saying
      Oppa is Gangnam style

      Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
      Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

      Here's the full lyrics written phonetically, original Korean, and translated to English:
      http://michelia94.wordpress.com/2012...-style-lyrics/

      He's saying "oppan Gangnam style" which means roughly "this guy is Gangnam style", but specifically the way you'd say it to a girl ("oppa" is how a girl would refer to an older brother or male friend, it's complicated). Gangnam is an affluent district in Seoul, a lot of K-pop industry is based there but the song is actually kind of making fun of the Korean obsession with wealth and pop music.

      That was pretty awesome!

      My less than half year old son kinda looks like the kid dancing initially, but a bit less Korean. Might be just the hair.
