'Gangnam Style,' translation please! Like most people, we've all watched the hit video over and over again, singing the lyrics "Oh sexy lady, oh, oh, oh" and trying to dance the horse dance. Maybe we've even watched the countless parodies on YouTube. But how many of us know what the lyrics of the song mean?

The "Gangnam Style" music video has now reached over 220 million views on YouTube and grows by the millions each day. PSY has appeared on SNL, Ellen Show, TODAY Show, MTV VMA's, Ryan Seacrest, VH1 and Extra's The Grove, all in the last couple of weeks! And the song is currently #1 on iTunes singles charts, and it's not even in English. That's a phenomenon!

Ellen DeGeneres tweeted Wednesday "The only thing I love more than @Psy_oppa's "Gangnam Style" right now is watching Americans try to sing along."

Korean artist PSY has described "Gangnam Style" as "dress classy, dance cheesy." Gangnam is like the Beverly Hills of Seoul, Korea. According to PSY, it's a place where people are classy during the day, but go crazy at night. Hence the lyrics "A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes. A girl with that kind of twist," and "A guy whose heart bursts when night comes. That kind of guy."

Here's "Gangnam Style" translated in English:

Oppa is Gangnam style
Gangnam style

A girl who is warm and humanly 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'm 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's go until the end

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

Oh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Oh- 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'm 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's go until the end

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

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

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

You know what I'm saying
Oppa is Gangnam style

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