That sound you’re hearing?  It’s the sound of EXO-L screaming at the top of their lungs.

Their new album Exodus (which has got to be the most blatant cash-grab I’ve ever seen with ten different collectable covers) will be out soon and the first singe, Call Me Baby, is as catchy as you would expect.  About the moment when the girl of their dreams chose them, this track highlights both the good and bad about EXO.  On one hand, they sound good and the track is fun; on the 0ther…the lyrics are so-so.  While I write off some of it as me not understand Korean references, the track seems to go all over the place before settling on the “you are my light” theme.  It’s not a bad song, it’s just not a lyrical powerhouse.

pop!gasa on the lyrical tip.  Also, we featured the Korean version because, we’ve been told, the Chinese version doesn’t make sense when translated.

Lyrics:
This street is completely crazy
Strangers in between people
Every moment that we’re together like boom boom boom boom boom
What up

Hey girl, that one moment felt like eternity (the fate-like moment)
When you pierced into me in just one moment (like lightning, in this world)
You called my name and came to me

It’s amazing, like a flash of light, you fill me up the moment I see you, oh my
Sit here comfortably and listen to my story now
Oh I don’t care, even if I have to go far
I’ll be the one man to be by your side

You seeped into my dry lips and woke me up
The time’s wasting girl
So don’t wait, don’t wait too long

There are many who shine but look at what’s real among them
Call me baby, Call me baby, Call me baby, Call me baby
(You know my name girl)

My heart grows bigger for you and it closes its door for everyone else but you
(You know I’m here girl)
Call me baby, Call me baby, Call me baby, Call me baby
Even if it’s many times, Call me girl

You make me exist as myself, you’re the only one in my world
You’re the one, You’re the one
Girl you’re the one I want

There are many who shine but look at what’s real among them
Call me baby, Call me baby, Call me baby, Call me baby
(You know my name girl)

Even if it’s many times, Call me girl

Baby girl, even among all the greed and all the words
You showed that you believe in me
Even if everyone changes and leaves me, you are my lady
All I need is for you to hold my hand

There are many who shine but look at what’s real among them
Call me baby, Call me baby, Call me baby, Call me baby
(You know my name girl)

My heart grows bigger for you and it closes its door for everyone else but you
(You know I’m here girl)
Call me baby, Call me baby, Call me baby, Call me baby
Even if it’s many times, Call me girl

I was once trapped in a dark maze (in the darkness)
But I hear your voice that woke me up
You made me be born again, yeah

E-X-O Listen!
Say my name (Louder)
If you become my light and pull me through this chaotic place (what up)
I’ll hold you and never change, I’ll hold you and face those who left me
Never don’t mind about a thing
You came into the big emptiness in my heart

In this shaking world (whoo babe)
You were the only one who became my light
Girl you’re the one I want
(You’re the one I want)

There are many who shine but look at what’s real among them
Call me baby, Call me baby, Call me baby, Call me baby
(You know my name girl)

(I’ll be your baby yeah- Ho!)
You make me exist as myself (You know I’m here girl)
You’re the only one in my world, you’re the one, You’re the one
Girl you’re the one I want
(You’re the one that I want)

There are many who shine but look at what’s real among them
Call me baby, Call me baby, Call me baby, Call me baby
(You know my name girl)

Even if it’s many times, Call me girl
