Samovar maker : I just love the dude's dancing

Sephrinx : Am I having a stroke right now?

Gaming Git : This is what English sounds like to non-english speakers.

Captain Video : I'm not sure what happened, but somewhere along the way, this became my jam.

Michael Sporzynski : I see so many people claiming this is gibberish. Not so! This is a song with a story. No, a message! Below are the lyrics I've painstakingly transcribed: ________ STUDENTS: You're the cool mate to say: "on freezing cold in ancient nights, shoes on" All right! TEACHER: When they're saying "the shoes", now I'll hold in the scene! Then the hauled Ray made it, get it? Called the bus, died. TRRRRRR! Chickens are behind me, get in the cold war, baby, Just say "Yeah!", Blue Joe, oh! When they're saying "the shoes", now I'll hold in the scene! Then the hauled Ray made it, get it? Called the bus, died. When this is said, well - thank you, a copy is seen You never tell them, now, that Jessica has been in this jam You didn't come out now, choose no wank for that soul Hope the hobo's just getting a lot of coke in no time All the dippers just damned, wipe the shoes and go my man Human cost due to math called the rain to girls Hope something! STUDENTS: Aye aye, smile Thursday, And you're so going beer-sore. Ice! You're the cold, mean sailor, Pleasing all with nice shoes on, All right! STUDENT: Aye aye, smilin' strangely, And it goes forth to Ibiza, Ice! STUDENTS: He's been calling us in nice shoes on, All right! TEACHER: Well I don't see'em going slipping out and giving me scenes, A lad with just enough of a dumb ho had a good thang, Let THIS go! We can see 'em in the sand, Let the shoes all come upend This is two horny cats in love, All fall off the cart This thang. Ah hey guys, my charts slipped, Ain't a handsome going, bae. So... ice? You don't call it medicine One piece ain't gonna lace it, not too sore... ...alright? You know ice? You know I've bills, you gimme all the dough, It's beaver or drugs, and I pick me all! STUDENTS: Aye, ice! Spice! Sex ed! And we got some dough and pizza! Ice! You can go make sin while We sing "go" and ace night school, so - alright! You do ace! You know I've bills, you kick all in me dough There's beaver, a bachelor I'll bring me home ________ So basically, this is a song about a teacher who's trying to teach his students to avoid drinking and sex by telling cautionary tales. But they call him out on being a womanizer and a drug dealer who sells ice to students. He shrugs and says "yeah, you caught me". They're all "doesn't bother us as long as we pass your class". So, as you can see, it's a very sad story. Remember, kids, don't do drugs.

Loren Whitaker : This is what lyrics sound like when I'm not paying attention to whats playing on the radio

toxickatie : It sounds like the language that Sims speak

resistance is futile : For some context: This song was created by Adraino Celentano who is Italian, and (at the time) couldn't understand English. He's the one posing as a teacher in this video. He created this song as a demonstration of what English sounds like to non-English speakers. Sauce: Hello Internet #80

BlackPage2 : The only way to improve this piece of pure genius would be to have it covered by the muppets.

JB Funx : The song is meant to sound to its intended Italian audience like English spoken with an American accent, but the lyrics are actually pure gibberish, with the exception of the words "all right". Thank Mr.Wiki.

Wicked Amoeba : The original "What English sounds like to non English speakers" video.

Pure Banter : This sounds English, but it's not. It's making me crazy...

C M : When your record label wants you to be more like an American pop star to appeal to more youth, but you're a smartass.

Voievod : Hello Internet represent.

Chris Batten : It is a genuine tragedy that I cannot turn on closed captions for this.

markog1999 : So apparently the english language sounds to non-native speakers like a supa hot bass and drum line

E Edgerton : This is actually the dialect of English that Led Zeppelin wrote their songs in

RatioHatesTheGame : Weird Al needs to do a parody of this in gibberish Italian.

Freakles : I'm trying to make sense of what they're saying even though I know it's all nonsense

IP Freelee : were drugs that much better back then or were there just more drugs?

Doc Scrove : I didn't know Uncanny Valley applied to music as well, but I think I just experienced it.

TheOneCalledRobie : "Peas and corn and eggs and I choose all, Alright."

Isosceles Kramer : It's like Bob Dylan and Elvis had a baby and that baby was like the idiot from Shine..

Houston Paul : Pretty spot on for a sung American accent.

muzzlevelocity2012 : Did i just have a stroke?
