Okay, here's the deal. I'll post the lyrics of a pop song that has been through a free translation site, like http://www.freetranslation.com/
to translate it into a foreign language, and then back into English. Your challenge is to guess which pop song it is. Whoever guesses right then gets to post the song of their choice. Sound easy? It's not.
Here's an example:
The words fly was the endless rain that wants in a glass of cardboard
They slip while they pass They they slip away through the
Pools of the grief waves universe of
the happiness they carry complete my open mind that
Possesses and me caressing
Lost? That was "Across the Universe" by the Beatles.
Words are flying out like
endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass
They slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
are drifting thorough my open mind
Possessing and caressing me
That's right, translated into Spanish and back "paper cup" becomes "glass of cardboard"
Starting off easy, this went from English to German back to English:
The devil is descended after Georgia, sought he a soul, to steal. It was in a clamp 'co it was way behind: it was willin' to make a business. As it on this young man sawin bumped has' into a fiddle and playin' it be named. And the devil jumped on a Hickoryholzstumpf and said: "boy tell let me you what: "I you have not knew bet it, but I am a fiddle player also. "and if you would provide yourself to take a challenge, will make I a bet with you. "now you play pay a pretty good fiddle, boy, but the devil home: "I a fiddle of the gold against your soul have 'Co I think that I am better, than you. ". The boy said: "the Johnny my by the name of and it might a sin be," however I your bet, your gonna regretting will take, ever was is 'co I best, that. ".
I'm going to punch you in the mouth for a few minutes and you're just going to have to trust me that you deserve it.Lawndale Online
