When Google Translate Met Taylor Swift

This is a very different version of Tuesday Tunes today, and for that I apologise. Nevertheless, this ought to be an entertaining post.

Why, you ask?

A while back I heard this song and I thought it was genius. Whoever thought up the idea of doing that to one of 2012′s biggest songs is an amazing individual. So, prizes for the person who guesses what this post is about!*

I hopped on the soon-to-be-bandwagon and translated one of the catchiest tunes of 2012 into ten different languages and back to English. If you’re not familiar with Taylor Swift’s ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ then take a listen first:

Original Lyrics:

I remember when we broke up the first time
Saying this is it, I’ve had enough, ’cause like
We haven’t seen each other in a month
When you, said you, needed space, what?
Then you come around again and say
Baby, I miss you and I swear I’m gonna change
Trust me, remember how that lasted for a day
I say, I hate you, we break up, you call me, I love you

Oooh we called it off again last night
But Oooh, this time I’m telling you, I’m telling you
We are never ever ever getting back together
We are never ever ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends talk
To my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

Like ever…

I’m really gonna miss you picking fights
And me, falling for a screaming that I’m right
And you, will hide away and find your piece of mind with some indie record that’s much cooler than mine

Oooh you called me up again tonight
But Oooh, this time I’m telling you, I’m telling you
We are never ever ever getting back together
We are never ever ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends talk
To my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

I used to think, that we, were forever ever ever
And I used to say never say never
Huh, he calls me up and he’s like, I still love you
And i’m like, i’m just, I mean this is exhausting, you know
We are never getting back together, like ever

We are never ever ever getting back together
We are never ever ever getting back together
You go talk to your friends talk
To my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

We, oooh, oooh, not back together, we
Oh, getting back together

You go talk to your friends talk
And my friends talk to me
But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

After being translated into ten different languages and then back to English:

I remember the first time we broke up
That said, I’ve had enough “as a reason
I have not seen in a month
When you say that you need the space, what is it?
Then go back and tell
Baby, I’m lost, and I swear I changed
Believe me, if I remember, one day at
I mean, I hate him, we parted, call me, I love you

Oooh, we called again last night
But Oooh, I can tell you now I say
We will never be together ever again
We will never be together ever again
You can talk to your friends, chat
I talked to my friends
But never, never be together again

As always …

I’m really struggling to get a collection
And I’m crying, decreased
And do not forget to hide a piece indie album, much cooler than mine hits

Oooh, I called tonight
But Oooh, I can tell you now I say
We will never be together ever again
We will never be together ever again
You can talk to your friends, chat
I talked to my friends
But never, never be together again

We never thought
And I said, never say never
Eh, I asked him, and he was like, I still love you
And, as I am busy, I mean, you know
We’re not getting back together, as always

We will never be together ever again
We will never be together ever again
You can talk to your friends, chat
I talked to my friends
But never, never be together again

What Oooh, Oooh, together again
Oh, to go back to the

You can talk to your friends, chat
And I’m talking to my friends
But never, never be together again
