[Men Don’t Cry] Themesong Lyrics

Lyrics written and sung by Dayo Wong

Download this Song: Full Version

Here is my attempt to translate this song (I put a lot of effort into it XD ) but its a bit hard because of how colloquial/slang the language is, so let me know if I’ve got anything wrong~ Its the literal translation of the song written up with help from a few friends, which takes on the persona of Gan Yan Geen (Evil Kin). Please give credit back if reposting translations =)

So cheap/low life that new ideas/meaning are born
Pretends to laugh, pretends to cry, pretends to be crazy
So deceitful that juice comes out
So deceitful that horns come up (as a devil)
This “deceitful” word
The stinking injustice is like a manure pit
Because of one problem
have the guts to try

Is there true love?
If there are emotions in this world
When the rainstorm hits your head
Just pretend its watering the flowers

For my friends, I’ll be deceitful/evil boy Ah Geen
I’ll have a deceitful heart, deceitful face (surface/appearance)
Use my dodegy/sneaky moves to defeat evil ghost/spirits/monsters

Break my arms, legs, feet, and lose everything, but I’ll still be eating
Fame is just dirt under our feet

Long empty nights, having an intimate friend
is it wrong?
Lonely world
Try to release your worries
Is there true love?
Let me feel the love
Be a silly person.


I quite like the themesong and lyrics because it reminds me of the series ^^ It’s even better that its sung by Dayo Wong himself who actually plays Gan Yan Geen. It just gives the series the extra touch =) I think it describes his character quite well and the way he sees things.
He doesn’t care about recognition, fame or getting any credit for the good things he does because he doesn’t it do it just to show other people. (Revealed later in the series when he turns good) ” Fame is just dirt under our feet”

  • Jadedreams says:

    thanks for the song and the translation! the lyrics are very clever, and i read from somewhere that Dayo wrote them. it really does correlate with his character very well. my favorite part is “Long empty nights, having an intimate friend……….is it wrong?…….Lonely world……..Try to release your worries….Is there true love?” which seems like something his character is asking from deep down his heart

  • KTVB says:

    To Jadedreams: I like that part too! esp in the song where the music/tune changes too ^^ It shows more of his real emotions and feelings ^^

    Men Don’t Cry Theme Song

    Jin gaak jin chut san yi si
    Baan siu baan haam waan baan chi
    Gaan do chut jap gaan do hei gok
    Je yat goh gaan ji chau yuen jeung fan chi
    Wai liu yat goh man tai gau daam si

    Si yau jan oi ma
    Sai gaan yeuk yau ching
    Bo yue tau seung da

    Wai ji gei ngoh jo gaan jai a gin
    Ngoh gaan sam gaan min
