G-Dragon – Coup D’etat Lyrics

(Feat. Diplo & Baauer)

English Translation:

The revolution will not be televised
The revolution is in your mind
The revolution is here

This is my Coup D’e Tat
Boomerang going from mouth to mouth
Hand’s up get high
The song starts I’m the tagger

Hid more tightly, I can see your hair
I’m a new boiler in your dad’s house
Yeah this is a spoiler
I’m so fly
I’m scary F-Killer
Gorilla that steals girls’ hearts
Bang bang bang
I earn money with my teeth
With my one song
You can get robbed at the company
In this GAME I am the hood to the winker
You are lo to the ser
You’ll never know
FAME

This is my Coup D’e Tat
Boomerang going from mouth to mouth
Hand’s up get high
The song starts I’m the tagger

If time is money I’m so poor
1 year, 365 days, Hong Kildong, god’s grace
My phone keeps on ringing
Like a new born child
My phone keeps on barking
Like that dog next door
Bow wow wow yeppie
yo yeppieye
I’m the best at self-admiration and being cocky
I’m shameless
I’m so fresh so clean
I compete with the laundry house
And my flow so sick
Keeps on going to the intensive care unit
WHAT

This is my Coup D’e Tat
Boomerang going from mouth to mouth
Hand’s up get high
The song starts I’m the tagger

Head shoulder knees and toes
swag check mic check
one two three four
I’m Pacman who eats MC
Head shoulder knees and toes
swag check mic check
one two three four
This is a gospel AMEN
Ay you want some
you want some more It’s not enough
Ay give me some
Give me some more alright y’all

This is my Coup D’e Tat
Boomerang going from mouth to mouth
Hand’s up get high
The song starts I’m the tagger

This is my Coup D’e Tat
Boomerang going from mouth to mouth
Hand’s up get high
The song starts I’m the tagger

  • big_bang

    what is coup d’e tat means

    • E.R

      it’s the action of defeat the current system of government by a violent attack. Litteraly ” stroke of state”.

    • Mc K. Marica

      revolution, i guess. :D

    • Mc K. Marica

      revolution, i guess. :D

    • http://blog.rins-world.com/ Rin Sanada (真田 りん)

      A revolt against a leader planned by members that the leader trusts…somewhat. No external forces are used. For instance it would be a coup d’etat if the ministers in a government overthrows the king. So in essence it’s a revolution or revolt.

    (평범해지는
    것이 내 유일한 금칙)

    (어줍잖은 남자
    들은 따라 하기 금지)

  • kinley zangmo

    gD oppa u are not only king..but god of k-pop…..oppa u r the best

  • Jeon Ji Hyun

    love this song

  • MinRinnie

    Actually, it’s “Coup d’état”, it’s french ;)

    • Andita

      What is that mean ?? :o

      • lovlev

        a sudden and decisive action in politics, esp. one resulting in a change of government illegally or by force

      • lovlev

        a sudden and decisive action in politics, esp. one resulting in a change of government illegally or by force

      • Linda Zze

        It means revolution

  • karel

    is it only me to hear ji sound ‘get tight’ on the lyric ‘get high’ ??

    • Vikeejeah

      “Get high” makes more sense since he says “Hand up” before “get high” as in get/put your hands up high.

  • Alin

    tbh this song doesn’t make sense. a coup d’état is a sudden overthrow of a government. pointless song

    • Azam

      Have you not seen the video?

    • Azam

      Have you not seen the video?

    • 가을93

      well his company is pretty much HIS government. Since they govern everything he does and is. Maybe this was his way of saying he’s going to do his own thing for a bit huh? ^w^

  • elle

    i think they are trying to over power God… they want to dethrone God. nyaha :) over analyzing.

    Well, from the video it seems that he is starting this coup within himself to kill the old him.

    The kid in front of him may represent him early in his career.
    Throughout the video he looks quite stressed and not happy to say the least, especially with the press coming at him from both sides.
    The shrouded lady near the tree with a chainsaw… in Heartbreaker the apples were being bitten, these they show apples that look as if they are skulls.
    Maybe she is cutting that tree down.
    All the people outside the ticket booth, where inside we see somewhat of a recording area. He pushes down of the mic in the booth, maybe meaning that he was sick of what he was creating.
    The boiling of what could represent the money made in previous years meaning little.
    Where he’s strapped in that chair, around him are vanity mirrors and old grungy looking clothing, representing his past image.
    He is seen holding a rock, then being “fired” at. Maybe representing the new him trying to destroy the old him.
    Then of course, the Heartbreaker masks on the wall crying black tears and falling in a pool below him, as well as covering him.
    He crushes the mask, then tears the old skin off of him and “revolts”, throwing the rock and breaking down this barrier. The end shows him as the warrior triumphing over what who he previously was.

    Idk. Just something I thought of while watching the video and thinking of his past songs and videos.

    • 연장자 CHUNJI

      oh cool hey :/

    • HayeChul

      WOW , tha really make sense O_O

    • Mantugee :3

    • Toni g.

      I like your thinking, very insightful.

  • Teguh

    many wrong on romanized…. please make the true 1..

  • Megan

    I was thinking about the “coup d’état”, thing. So, I thought this was a revolution against his old bullies/haters.. He’s giving them “the finger” and saying I’m calling a quits on fighting you, it’s over, and we’re not friends.

  • Jaquie Gonzalez Gutierrez

    lol im learning about this in history XD

  • Toni g.

    I guess like most creative artist who have made it big after a while you want freedom form those trying to handle you for example your mang. company. At this point in time, home boy is so big he could really do what he wants but he has to think about Big Bang and their future. well at least he is able to express his thoughts/ feeling through his lyrics and still put them out there no matter if it is about his personal demons or the business side of his life. The boys got talent and that’s that. i’ve been watching all of his videos lately, live performance and music videos and the guy really has talent, I think he shines even brighter when he performs without Big Bang. TOp is beautiful and all but he has not developed like GD. I see TOP’s future in acting only. G Dragon will always be in music because he feels it, it’s in his soul.

  • Sehuninetyfour

    what is the meaning of this song? and also the logo of coup d’etat? srry new vip here :)

    • Elizabeth Dill

      well it is about starting a revolution(his coup de’tat) against of his past image in the small since of it. Also (more noticeable in the video then actual lyrics) about rising against how the media sees him and the struggle of being almost god like to the point that there are such high standers people hold him up to and people for get that behind the idol he is infact human. also the video seem to depict the pain of not being allowed to express his love life since unfortunately it seems to cause anger with both the press and fans which is the same for any kpop idol you’ll notice it’s very rare for any artist to talk about or be seen with a romantic partner.

      • mirela semanjaku

        i understand it more from your explanation than from any source i’ve been reading so far in the internet.. Thank you!

  • Hana

    :D This is such a good song to listen to while I read about coup d’etat in my social studies textbook right now.

  • Aisyah P

    I like It It’s So Verry enjoy the song. but so many dajjal pictures. never mind #GREAT SONG#

  • Vikeejeah

    I would love a translation for what he’s saying in the asides. (pyeongbeomhaejineun geosi nae yuilhan geumchik) and (eojupjanheun namjadeureun ttara hagi geumji) I can’t find them anywhere
