Garbled lyrics...

Post#1 » Sun Dec 11, 2011 6:38 pm

Ok, here's something to try...

Take the chorus of a song, run it through Google translate into two different languages, then back to English...

You have to say what languages you translated through and the decade the song is from!

Here's the first one...

Era - The 60's

English > Traditional Chinese > Urdu > English

You do not want someone to love
What you need is love
Do not you love a love
You will find someone better to Love

What song is it?

(btw... running it back through the translator makes it even worse!)
Now I've got a link... What the hell do I do with it?
