Creep. Yeah, it's pretty easy, but funny translation...

Here's what I think is a hard one. It's only a small clip of a song, but a very familiar line in it. Translated a bunch of times...

English -> German -> Swahili -> Georgian -> Japanese -> English
Surprisingly unchanged from the original

In my eyes, indisposed in disguise as no one knows
Skin surface is a shame my sun and snake
It looks dead in boiling heat of the sky in black, the smell "of summer
I hear you cry again, and call his name through the cream

Black hole sun, will you not come?
Washing of rain
Black hole sun, will you not come?
You do not come?

Attenuation to steal a friend tired stuttering warm wind, cold and
In an honest man in a long line, it is sometimes far
My shoes, sleeping infant in my youth I pray to put
More than anyone else does not sing like you, to dispose of heaven hell

Black hole sun, will you not come?
Washing of rain
Black hole sun, will you not come?
You do not come?

Black hole sun, will you not come?
Washing of rain
Black hole sun, will you not come?
You do not come? You do not come?
You do not come? You do not come?

Hang my head, I drown my fears
Before you just disappear

Black hole sun, will you not come?
Washing of rain
Black hole sun, will you not come?
You do not come?

Black hole sun, will you not come?
Washing of rain
Black hole sun, will you not come?
You do not come? You do not come?

You do not come? You do not come?
You do not come? You do not come?
You do not come? You do not come?

I want the animal which likes me with your sexual intercourse wanting to feel you
from me to want with your sexual intercourse to like the animal my whole existence
having flaw inside you to obtain me
to leave the god to be near

Yes, it is.

English -> Arabic -> Armenian -> Malagasy -> Urdu -> English:
We can get you a jacket
Cold, cold
I believe, that pit pit pit
Ratatouille strychnine in the
Sometimes my friends
A huge whirlpool
Then blow your mind

[SONG TITLE REDACTED]
Some embarrassment, Mrs. Crocodile Given
Murray mussels
He said he thinks the Kaiser Wilhelm
Or syllabub civiliaes
Sound in mind
What happens to them
Hello Goodtime
He fought for the rights of Moneypenny received a small fund
What happens to them
Hello Goodtime
Too bad he was buried prematurely
And smilied

So, Fluffy, give us a more difficult one (within the bounds of guess-a-bility) rather than just lording it up over how you thought of a particular well-known song before anyone else :)

Well, here's one (which one line gives away) to occupy your mind while you work - English > Japanese > Arabic > English, just the chorus ...

... I want to know that nudity is awesome
don't want to know don't know about you,
but I know chip eye, a Spanish hound,
got the movie

EDIT: Nudity *is* awesome. Good Lord this band was on the nose. :)
