Using Google Translate for fun!

I got inspired by a youtube video which took a song and transformed it by putting it thrugh layers of google translate. I decided to try my hand at it and came out with some pretty hilarous stuff!

I chose to use Let's Go Fly a Kite from Mary Poppins because it is a classic song that almost everyone knows!

The original Lyrics...

With tuppence for paper and strings
You can have your own set of wings
With your feet on the ground
You're a bird in a flight
With your fist holding tight
To the string of your kite

Oh, oh, oh!
Let's go fly a kite
Up to the highest height!
Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let's go fly a kite!


When you send it flyin' up there
All at once you're lighter than air
You can dance on the breeze
Over 'ouses and trees
With your first 'olding tight 
To the string of your kite


Oh, oh, oh!
Let's go fly a kiteI started With
Up to the highest height!
Let's go fly a kite and send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Let's go fly a kite!


 then put the song through many layers of languages (sorry about the italics i just noticed and will fix them now)

I started with English...
     Engilsh
     Chinese
     French
     German
     Italian
     Spanish
     Swahili
     English
then i got my final results...
With two pence paper chains 
You can have your own set of wings 
With your feet on the ground 
His plane in flight 
Using your fist 
By kite string 

Oh, oh, oh! 
Come fly a kite 
Maximum length! 
Come fly a kite and send it increased 
And conditions 
Up where the air is clean, 
Oh, go fly a kite! 

If you fly to send 
Suddenly, it's lighter than air 
You can dance in the wind 
In mouses and trees 
His first 'olding tight 
By kite string 

Oh, oh, oh! 
Come fly a kite 
Maximum length! 
Come fly a kite and send it increased 
And conditions 
Up where the air is clean, 

Come fly a kite!

My favorite part is the mouse part which makes no sense at all :)
have a nice week and enjoy what you have left of spring break :)
