Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, lotto-tto
Oh, yeah, yeah
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah
별 관심이 없는 척 시선을 피해서 가
이해해 모든 걸 걸어야만 할 테니까
스쳐만 봐도 oh yeah
다른 여자와는 확 달라
뒤돌아봐도 분명 내게 찾아온 luck

Lipstick chateau 와인빛 color (la la la la)
하얀 champagne 버블에 shower (la la la la)
평생에 한 번일지도 몰라
꾹 참았던 본능이 튀어 올라
어쩌나 I just hit the lotto (la la la la)
Oh, oh, oh, lotto
Oh, oh, oh, lotto oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, lotto
Oh, oh, oh, lotto oh, oh, oh

너란 행운 마치 실낱같은 확률 속에 맘을 던지게 해 날
다른 사람들은 이제 팝콘 입에 넣은 채 우릴 쳐다봐

Oh (oh baby)
멀리서 들려오는 소리
No way (no way, no way, no)
즐겨 봐 oh yeah
모든 게 바뀌어 oh yeah
오늘부턴 공기도 달라
세상이 바뀌어
밤하늘엔 은빛 별들

Lipstick chateau 와인빛 color (la la la la)
하얀 Champagne 버블에 shower (la la la la)
평생에 한 번일지도 몰라
꾹 참았던 본능이 튀어 올라
널 향해 소리 질러 louder (la la la la)
Oh, oh, oh louder
Oh, oh, oh louder oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh louder
Oh, oh, oh louder oh, oh, oh

이 순간을 놓치진 마
We’re going crazy, my lucky lady
또 한번 기억될 날을
지금도 난 목이 말라 네게 줄 게 아직 많아
I don’t need no money 너만 있으면 돼
더없이 간절히 원하는걸

모든 것을 걸어 내게 (oh, yeah)

Lipstick chateau 와인빛 color (chateau, chateau all over) (la la la la)
하얀 champagne 버블에 shower (하얀 champagne on me) (la la la la)
평생에 한 번일지도 몰라
꾹 참았던 본능이 튀어 올라 (본능이 튀어 올라)
어쩌나 I just hit the lotto (la la la la)

(Yeah, oh)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (just hit the lotto woo yeah)
Lotto oh, oh, oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Hit the lotto, woo yeah)
넌 lotto (la la la la)

Full Lyrics

A thunderous beat, an addictive chorus, and an evocative portrayal of striking it rich—’Lotto’ by Exo has all the trappings of a K-pop hit that’s more than just ear candy. The 2016 release by South Korea’s chart-topping boy band blends the thrill of winning with the high stakes of romance, creating an anthem that resonates with the risk-takers and dreamers alike.

Delving deeper beneath its catchy hooks and glossy production, ‘Lotto’ encapsulates a narrative of chance and desire. It’s a song that entices listeners to consider the parallels between the rush of gambling and the tumultuous realm of love, urging a deeper reflection on what it means to truly ‘hit the jackpot’ in life’s grand casino.

Champagne Showers & Lipstick Chateaus: Decoding Exo’s Odes to Luxury

With imagery rich in extravagance, ‘Lotto’ lyrically paints a scene dripping with opulence. Lipstick chateau wine color and white champagne bubble showers serve as more than mere symbols of wealth; they are the personified thrills of a new romance that’s as intoxicating as the finest of spirits.

These fine touches of hedonism in the lyrics aren’t simply a nod to the luxurious life but a metaphor for the sensory overload that love at first sight brings. It suggests that the euphoric experience of falling in love is akin to sipping on the delights of a once-in-a-lifetime victory.

Riding the Beats of Destiny: How ‘Lotto’s’ Rhythm Mirrors the Pulse of Fortune

The pulsating synth and bass-heavy backdrop of ‘Lotto’ mirrors the heartbeat of a gambler placing a bet or a lover confessing feelings. Every thump aligns with the adrenaline of risking it all, perfectly encapsulating the song’s central theme of serendipity and surrender to the moment.

This musical mimicry isn’t just effective in getting listeners’ hearts racing—it’s a crafty tool used by Exo to draw us into the narrative, making the stakes feel real and the triumphs even more visceral. Through rhythm, we too become swept up in the gamble of romance.

Beyond the Flashing Lights: The Hidden Meaning of Exo’s ‘Lotto’

Beneath the veneer of ‘Lotto’s’ flashy allure lies a profound commentary on the nature of love and happiness. It’s not merely about the physical wealth one might accrue but about the emotional richness that comes from a meaningful connection.

By equating love to winning the lotto, Exo manages to convey that true value isn’t found in the gold and glitter but in the rarity and preciousness of finding someone who makes life feel like the grandest prize of all.

Memorable Lines that Echo in the Vaults of Our Minds

‘I don’t need no money, 너만 있으면 돼’ strikes a chord deep within, as it eschews materialism for the irreplaceable worth of human connection. In a world constantly chasing financial success, this line is a refreshing reminder that the richest experiences often come free of charge.

Similarly, ‘We’re going crazy, my lucky lady’ encapsulates the delirious joy and irrationality that often accompanies love. It’s a line that invites listeners to let go of their fears and reservations, to embrace the craziness of falling, deeply and irrevocably, in love.

A Vocal Rollercoaster: Exo’s Delivery of Highs and Lows

Exo’s varied vocal range in ‘Lotto’ makes the song a sonic rollercoaster. The changes in dynamics and tone throughout the track parallel the unpredictable nature of love’s game—with soaring highs and tender moments reflecting the complex emotions involved in taking a chance on another person.

The band’s ability to convey these nuances not only showcases their vocal prowess but also further embeds the song’s meaning into the minds and hearts of those who listen, ensuring ‘Lotto’ remains a memorable part of K-pop’s lexicon.
