Subject: guess the translated song

Written By: karen on 02/04/05 at 10:42 am

Not sure whether this goes here or in the quizzes.  It was a game we played here before a couple of years ago.  I heard them doing it as a quiz on the local radio and it reminded me.

Basically I've taken the first verse of a song translated it (using babel fish) into another language and then translated that back in to English.  you have to try and work out which song it is and then post your own for someone else to guess.


This is mine from an '80's song

Well do I the attitude
examine here you what I sees?
I immediately appear via his
I am so much sad
when you are young persons
in order to you have the obligation
that you have the amusement

Here is a bit of the chorus.

and make you a favour
that the music not obtained no taste,
test another savour

Back to 80s songs:



It and I as much to live to for
Our love is a vapor
that better days.
Wishing everything, which I could give for
A daily you saw find
That, that, I not my mind
While you am change
