Psy, the worldwide phenomenon whose breakout music video for "Gangnam Style" has been viewed well over 2 billion times on YouTube, is back with a catchy new single and yet another eccentric, somewhat disturbing music video. "Daddy," the latest club anthem from the Korean pop star, dropped Monday, showing Psy throughout the various stages of his life, with his face being digitally implanted on a child's body.

Like "Gangnam Style," the music video features attractive Korean dancers, bursts of eccentric choreography and short bits of the English language. However, most of the song is in Korean, leading international fans to wonder what the hell is actually going on in Psy's new single.

Tech Insider has transcribed the lyrics for fans, leaving two terms in place as there aren't direct English translations for "oppa," an older male friend and" unni," an older female friend:

I got it from my DADDY, DADDY
I feel nice, you look nice
The moment I saw you I thought, wow I found a catch
Don't think twice, this game's already over
You be my curry, I'll be your rice
My name is PSY
In Korean Park Jae-Sang
I want to fall and swim in your eyes
Oppa's going to take off, hold on tight unni
I'm a beautiful lady's partner
Hold up, wait a minute, From now the players together
The night can't go to waste turn up louder
Fiery beautiful you
How do you like me now?
How do you like me now?
How do you like me now?
How do you like me now?
Hey! Where did you get that body from?
Where did you get that body from?
Where did you get that body from?
I got it from my DADDY
I got it from my DADDY
I got it got it
Hey! Where did you get that body from?
I got it from my DADDY

You're a masterpiece, I'm a relentless buyer
Don't be a liar, just tell it like it is
I be yo' honey, neva expire
In the day I just sleep, in the night I'm a real man
As soon as I saw you I fell head over heels
I know just from one look
When I'm having fun I'm like a kid
Oppa says "Oh hey" going in without turning on the blinkers
Hold up, wait a minute, From now the players together
Night can't go to waste, turn up louder
Fiery beautiful you
How do you like me now?
How do you like me now?
How do you like me now?
How do you like me now?
Hey! Where did you get that body from?
Where did you get that body from?
Where did you get that body from?
I got it from my DADDY
I got it from my DADDY
I got it got it
Hey! Where did you get that body from?
I got it from my DADDY
I got it from my DADDY

A gentleman who refuses to be a gentleman
The psycho in this district is me (hey)
