Song Lyrics After Bad Translation: Pt 1

‘Sup everyone? Today’s post is going to be something that’s quite hilarious to read; just a heads up. I recently saw a bunch of videos that dealt with song lyrics after crappy translation, and man was it hilarious! After watching them, I thought, “Why not write a post with your own song choices?” and lo and behold today’s post.

Here’s how this goes:

  1. Each song contains a snippet of lyrics from any verse. These songs are an assortment of genres ranging from pop music to metal music.
  2. The said snippet was first translated into a foreign language, and I just kept swapping the snippet’s translation back and forth different languages; until there was a hilarious/weird version of the original lyrics.
  3. If you want to really get into the flow of some songs, you can play the original song while reading the said snippet.
  4. For this post, I’ve randomly selected some songs out of the uh…..plethora of songs saved in my MS Word file. A part 2 may come out next month, so stay tuned! If you have any song requests, lemme know in the comments below.

Now that we’re clear with how this goes, let’s get into the post. Enjoy!

#1. We Will Rock You – Queen

Friends, dear, it’s a lot of noise
Playing outside will make you one day better
There is dirt on the face and it is a great insult
Play shoes in the music window

We do it, we rune you
We will do it and surprise you

#2. Nothing Else Matters – Metallica

No matter how far you are
Nothing I did caused it
We hope forever
There’s more

I have not opened it.
Life is ours, so we live.
I didn’t say any of that.
And nothing major

#3. All Star – Smash Mouth

You are nine stars
Keep playing, keep playing
No, Agria, you are a rock
Watch, pay
All pearls are gold
You can only grind one star shape

#4. Blank Space – Taylor Swift

It will always be like that
Or participation
Can you tell me when it’s over, etc.
If it’s worth it
I have a list of former relatives.
I’m telling you, I’m crazy
You know, I love football players.
And she loves the game
Because young people are flawless
We’re going too far
Breathe, etc.
Or have an ugly wound
I have a long list of relatives in the past.
I’m telling you, I’m crazy
But I’m an empty baby
I’m writing your name

#5. Bad Guy – Billie Eilish

We will
The rich are very understandable
I have never seen such a person
Inflammation inflammation
I am very poor
If it is not connected, ask him
Stay with your daughter
A real rabbit steals your father’s data
I went to bed, duh

#6. Uptown Funk – Bruno Mars & Mark Ronson

Girl slaps praise (ooh)
Girl slaps praise (ooh)
Girl slaps praise (ooh)
Sleep gives you a bitter taste
Ness takes you out of town
NESP gives you a happy city
Our Saturday night
Do not believe me, please see (come)

#7. Summer Of ’69 – Bryan Adams

They have a first date
I bought hands and arms
I also play more, even with my fingers
Hot weather, 69 degrees
I go with the other Kinder to college
We have a team and we work hard
Jim Walt and his heir, Judy
I want to know that we are not far away
If you want to click again
This summer drove forever
I have a hat and Wal
I want to be with you
This is the best sign in my life

#8. Rap God (fast part) – Eminem

Ah, Soma Loma, the remnants of the Duma, you consider me a human being
What I can tell you that I am a good person?
Since tehtaani and I are made of rubber, I am satisfied with words, and I take it everywhere.
I wasn’t happy that the lamp was worse than before
As his mother grew, he melted society
I know it will never end, and anger will last forever
I am happy these days
I have reason to make them happy.
I write and compose high quality music

#9. Fight for Your Right To Party – Beastie Boys

Watch out student, you really don’t want to go
You asked your mother? Straight out denial
I spent 2 hours not doing my homework
But your teacher will let you know that you do not like it
You have to fight for your team’s rights!

#10. The Devil In I – Slipknot

Pick up these strings, my friends
I show great anger
The victim died
Soda, but nothing can forgive
You can’t decide
None of us went through this process
Of course
Some of us want to live

Come see, the ghost inside me
We have done this many times
Come see, the ghost inside me
You will learn that I am no longer a ghost

#11. Freak On A Leash – Korn

There is something coming into me
You and I were here
Damn me there is something coming
Some participated with me

It feels like a freak on your belt
(you want to see the brightness)
Feeling we have ‘Run out of gas’ node
(Emotionally menu)

#12. Clint Eastwood – Gorillaz

I’m not happy, I’m happy
In the shopping bag
This does not help,
but it was a long time ago
Future
I’m not happy, I’m happy
In the shopping bag
It doesn’t help,
but it’s been a long time
Future
He is here
He is here
He is here

#13. Lost In Japan – Shawn Mendes

All you have to do is do it
We are at the same time
See title
Look at the rainbow
In my opinion
I know that’s stupid
I want to see
Ah, I want to ask questions
Do you have a fun people program today?
Two hundred miles from Japan
I was thinking of going to a hotel today
Because I can not go wrong
I can not lie
I can not do without you

#14. Brain Stew – Green Day

Sleep is very difficult
I run to count the sheep
Time is running out
I am still working
My mind is not pleasant to cross

By itself, we go here

#15. Creep – Radiohead

But I kept jumping
I am boiling
What am I doing here?
My seats are not here

#16. Drag Me Down – One Direction

My whole life
He sat next to me
There seems to be no one behind me
The forest is shining everywhere
I can not go blind
One can love me for his love

Oh, how I wish I could include my entire list of songs into this post; but I wanted to give y’all a break from laughing like crazy. Lemme know which one’s your favourite; and I’ll see ya on Friday. Until then, fellow readers!

    1. When I first got the translation of Bad Guy, I was like “WTH is this??” 😂😂. What’s even more hilarious is that it sounds nothing like the original! 🤪

      Hehe, even the Rap God part made no sense at all; but it was still freaking hilarious 🤣🤣

      Stay tuned for part 2, btw!
