Why Online Translation Is Made Of Fail

To readers on Facebook: best to read the full article as opposed to on Facebook, Tables are used.

In my epic boredom as a Rocky Horror fan, I found the lyrics to the German Translation to Rocky Horror here. And then I ran them through Google Translate.

What a mess.

Original In German Translated in Google Translate
“It’s astounding — Time is fleeting

Madness takes its toll

But listen closely — not for very much longer

I’ve got to keep control.

I remember doing the time warp

Drinking those moments when

The Blackness would hit me — The void would be calling.

Let’s do the Time Warp again

Let’s do the Time Warp again

It’s just a jump to the left

And then a step to the right

With your hands on your hips

You bring your knees in tight

But it’s the pelvic thrust

That starts to drive you insane

Let’s do the Time Warp again

Let’s do the Time Warp again

It’s so dreamy — oh fantasy free me

So you can’t see me — no not at all

In another dimension — with voyeuristic intention

Well secluded — I’ll see all

With a bit of a mind flip — you’re there in the time slip

Nothing can ever be the same

You’re spaced out on sensation

Like you’re under sedation

Let’s do the Time Warp again

Let’s do the Time Warp again

Well I was walking down the street

Just having a think

When a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink

Well it shook me up, it took me by surprise

He had a pick up truck and the devil’s eyes

Oh — he stared at me and I felt a change

Time meant nothing — never would again

Einfach irre – die Zeit macht mich kirre

Wahnsinn will Tribut

Diese Nummer – mach ich keinen Tag länger

ich bin jetzt auf der Hut.

Komm doch mit uns – auf den Zeitsprung

Leben ist fatal

im Dunkel vergessen

laß Stimmen mich fressen

Mach doch den Zeitsprung nochmal!

Mach doch den Zeitsprung nochmal!

Der erste Sprung geht nach links

Ein Schritt nach rechts irgendwie

Kreisel mal mit dem Dings

Es reicht dir bis zum Knie!

Ist es auch ein Schlauch

fühl mal deinen Bauch

Mach doch den Zeitsprung nochmal!

Mach doch den Zeitsprung nochmal!

Ja, ich weiß nicht, ob ich’s kann

auf der Straße sah ich dann

einen Typen – er machte mich tierisch an.

Was der für’n Auto hat

er setzte mich mit Teufelsaugen matt

oh, er nahm mich her

mir war so schwer

einfach zeitlos – ganz ohne Qual

Mach doch den Zeitsprung nochmal!

Mach doch den Zeitsprung nochmal!

Just insane – the time makes me tame

Madness tribute will

This number – I do not one day longer

I am now on my guard.

Come with us – at the time jump

Life is fatal

forgotten in the dark

let me eat Votes

Why do not the time-warp again!

Why do not the time-warp again!

The first step is to the left

A step to the right somehow

Tops times with the Thing

It’s enough to you to your knees!

Is it a hose

times feel your belly

Why do not the time-warp again!

Why do not the time-warp again!

Yes, I do not know if I can do it

I saw on the street

a guy – he introduced me to animal.

What the car has für’n

He sat down matt with devil’s eyes

Oh, he took me here

I was so hard

simply timeless – no pain

Why do not the time-warp again!

Why do not the time-warp again!
