"I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" by way of Indonesian, Belorussian, Hawaiian, and Polish. Nothing all that interesting, except Hawaiian turned Santa Claus into MELE KALIKIMAKA.

Wow, honeymoon MELE KALIKIMAKA
I saw my honeymoon MELE KALIKIMAKA
Under the mistletoe last night
He did not know when I went
He has a little fledgling spy
I'm thinking about a suit
He sleeps peacefully in my room

Then I saw her mother tickle MELE KALIKIMAKA
Under the beard and white snow
Oh, laugh at it
If dad knows that
Mom kiss Santa hope after

Kona knows her honey, honey, honey MELE KALIKIMAKA
As a result, the mother smiled MELE KALIKIMAKA
And when I went to tell my father

Then I saw her mother tickle MELE KALIKIMAKA
Under the beard and white snow
Oh, laugh at it
If you have any idea
Mom kiss Santa hope after

Oh, laugh at it
If dad knows that
Mom kiss Santa hope after

When I did, I did it and my mother smiled MELE KALIKIMAKA
You believe in me and trust me
Come, Father, trust me and trust me

I hope MELE KALIKIMAKA or one of his little spy birds brings you that suit you were thinking about!

What translation engine are people using? I switched to Bing last year as it seemed to have more interesting languages than Google, but even it seems to be missing many of the languages I've seen used this year.

Here's The Carol of the Bells via Javanese, Bosnian, Kyrgyz, Finnish, Japanese, and French:
HARK, why is ringing?
Sweet silver watch,
obviously
I will throw it away.

Christmas now
Faster,
For young people and the elderly,
Good and bold.

Ding Dong Ding Dong
A song
Work ring
All crabs.

This may have been heard,
A good thing
From anywhere
Filled with air.

well no
Make a sound
Mountain Rites, Dale,
Tell stories.

The tire
People
Good songs,
Christmas gift

Merry Merry Merry Christmas,
Happy Merry Merry Christmas

They are then sent,
Finally,
Your happy
All houses.
Doto, Ding ... Ton!

"The Man with the Bag" becomes a Mafia story.....


Mr. Sir [Old Karlin] is soon the reindeer
The bells that will peel off all your problems
Everyone is waiting for the bag man.

Because Christmas will come again
It has a sleigh, it will not be full
He has things to do at each station
Everyone is waiting for the bag man.

Because Christmas will come again
It will be up here up.
What did you do throughout the year
You will be killed if you have done everything necessary

Their values ​​are good
You will do it in December, what you will remember
The best and the most delightful
Everyone is waiting for the bag man.

Christmas is here again
Old Mr. Kringle, the resonance will sound soon
All the bells that will nibble all your problems
Everyone is waiting for the bag man.

Christmas is here again
He has a ski and will not stay full
I have things to avoid
Everyone is waiting the men confer,
Everyone is waiting for the bag man.

Since this thread is about interpreting Christmas songs, I present the very intriguing interpretation of "Silent Night" by Mr. Herbert Buckingham Khaury, a.k.a. Tiny Tim. His version of an Elvis-like monologue almost derails this recording, but it remains true Tiny.



BTW, Tiny also recorded the highly inappropriate "Santa Claus Has Got the AIDS This Year", which I will not link to here.

Chuck Berry takes "Run Rudolph Run" through Romania, Uzbekistan, Holland, Luxembourg, Portugal, and Hawaii:

All of it is clear from North Rhine-Westphalia
Run, Rudolph runs, far away from Randalph
Run, Rudolph runs, to go to Santa Town
Claus Claus did not hesitate to go on the road
Run, run Rudolph, because I'm traveling on a happy trip.

As Santa mentioned to a boy, she asked, "Boy, why are you there?"
"Everything you Want for Rock and Roll Guitar"
Then, Rudolph needs to drink and drink as a picture star

Run, Rudolph runs, to go to Santa Town
Claus Claus did not hesitate to go on the road
Run, work with Rudolph and make a nice break

Run, Rudolph runs, to go to Santa Town
Claus Claus did not hesitate to go on the road
Do not go, please run Rudolf, please

Santa said to me, "Honey, do you want to do the most?"
"The smallest pig, which is the medication of dentistry, is the same as the verb"
Then, like Rudolph's sadness

Run, Rudolph runs, to go to Santa Town
Claus Claus did not hesitate to go on the road
Do not go, please run Rudolf, please

The Coventry Carol via French, Japanese, German, Punjabi, Yoruba, Amharic, and Polish:
Lowell, Russell, your son,
Lets say that
Small children,
Author, Lilly

What should my girlfriend do?
Save this day
We sang to this poor kid
About Lee Lilien

In the presence of King Herod
You did not accuse me here today
His servants came to his arrival
All children are killed

We left you poor.
Every morning
He hesitates to speak or sing
About Lee Lilien


The site I got the lyrics from doesn't let you hotlink, so here are the lyrics I used:
Lullay, lulla, thou little tiny child,
by by, luly lullay,
thou little tiny child,
by by, lully lullay.

O sisters too, how may we do,
for to preserve this day,
this poor youngling for whom we sing,
by, by lully lullay.

Herod the king in his raging,
charged he hath this day,
his men of night, in his own sight,
all young children to slay.

That woe is me, poor child, for thee!
And every morn and day,
for thy parting not say nor sing
by, by, lully lullay.

He may hesitate to speak or sing about her, but meanwhile we can look at her Facebook Page.

Spit Take

"Here We Come A Wassailing" (ancient version) has been a wassailing through German, Nepali, Welsh, Arabic, and French:

Here we lack water
Dell beat the newspapers,
Here we came on a trip
Beautiful

Love and happiness come to you
And you too, Wassail,
And may God bless you and send you a new year.
God sends you a good year.

Our message is over
From the pink tree
And your beer
Best barley

We ask for action
Door to door,
But we have children
From a witness

There are good teachers and teachers,
When you walk away from the fire,
Think about us, bad kids
Walk on Moore

We have a small wallet
The dermis is done.
We want something from your little change
Be good

Butler called in this house,
Keep your golden finger.
You must bring us a glass of beer,
We will sing better

We brought to the table,
Spread with a cloth;
They brought us thick cheese
And your Christmas bread

God bless this owner
Also mistress.
And all young children
Go to the table.

Crash

Ding Dong Merrily On High
Finnish, Urdu, Basque, Spanish, Esperanto
Ding Dong is glad,
In life, watch watches:
Ding Dong! Really sky
With a river river?
Glory, emotionally excited!

Go down
Rotate the bicycle bell
And "me, me, me!"
Clero and surrounded by humans.
Glory, emotionally excited!

You can pray
You are a kimera, your soul;
I can not find you
Your eternal song, singers.
Glory, emotionally excited!

"Twelve Days to Christmas" from "She Loves Me" (minus the interactions with the salespeople), via Telugu, Estonian, Italian, and Samoan.


On the first Christmas day, I found my true love. Oi ..

Christmas is twelve days,
Christmas is twelve days,
Your Christmas store often sells
Buy time now, buy time, much time
This is the second time people buy for their own conveniences

Christmas is twelve days,
Christmas is twelve days,
They will see the Christmas tree
They can go shopping and are at ease and quiet
These are the people we are jealous of and the people we hate!

Twenty-two steps, stops,
Save the Twelve
11 power supply
11 power supply
Skip ten boys
nine

Christmas nine days,
Christmas nine days
It's time to buy your Christmas
Persons currently in the process are still present
Kind people are present and keep their commandment
Christmas nine days,
Christmas nine days,
It's time to buy your Christmas
These people are the most intelligent and loving people of their time
People who then buy and go to hell!

Eight people fall into milk
Seven baths
Set up six types
Clean hands of gold

Take days on Christmas
Take days on Christmas
It's time to buy your Christmas
At the moment, at the moment, only people buy time
These people are based on assuring the body
Take days on Christmas
Take days on Christmas
These are not all
Sorry the strength
Gallbladder is loaded
No first, and it's not late
And their worst!

Twenty-four?
One day for Christmas
One day for Christmas
It does not have time to buy our Christmas
We are not welcome at the moment
We are not the sheep who jump over time
We are not the ones who bought us at the moment
Time is over, it's not enough time
People wait all the time until it is too late, oh!

One day for Christmas
One day for Christmas
How to buy our Christmas
Because we came, for
Some families do not even have Christmas gifts!

Since New Year's is coming up, here's "Auld Lang Syne" translated through Scots Gaelic, because Robert Burns, and Japanese, because they're one of the first countries to ring in the new year.

If you forget the identity of Old,
And have not you entered it?
If you forget the identity of Old,
And Old said Lang.

Old run, Tamojo,
Old account lang.
We still have a cup of memories,
Old account lang.

And you will definitely be a straw!
And surely I will be desire!
And we still give the family cup,
Old account lang.

I will run about Cologne
And the blacksmith was beautiful
But we have a weak turn
Crime Old language.

We were paid to Ogawa
The sun has changed.
But the ocean between us welcomes him
Crime Old language.

And there is a meaningful hope for the hands, me!
And that's your hand!
And we take the right direction,
Old account lang.

If you forget an old scientist
And have not you entered it?
If you forget an old scientist
And long ago.

And for a long time, my love
long time no see
We still have a cup of friendship
long time no see
And surely you are buying a pigeon!
And surely I bought myself!
And we still have a cup of friendship
long time no see

Both of us are running around hills
And he robbed the barn.
But we are spreading tired feet
A while ago, long ago.

We are in the paddle inside the brook,
From the morning to the sun.
But there is a sea between us crying
A while ago, long ago.

And, there are hands, reliable friends!
And extend your hand to us!
And we will take a deep benevolent world
long time no see

Looking for other songs of the new year, I ran across "New Year's Day" by Taylor Swift. In honor the artist, I ran it through Thai, Lao, and Swiss (well, German, which is the most widely spoken language in Switzerland...)

The light sparkles on the background of the party
The girls brought their shoes to the waiting room.
Candle and polaroid candles on solid wood
You and I were night before

Do not read the last page.
But I'm still the moment you're gone and scared and you're gone.
I need your night
But I will cleanse you with the new year

You pushed me three times behind the cigar.
I can say that it will be a long way.
I will be there when you have the baby's baby.
Or when you go out and drive home

Do not read the last page.
But I'm in trouble or wrong or you make a mistake
I need your night
But I will cleanse you with the new year

Keep track of their memories.
Keep track of their memories.
Keep track of their memories.
And I will hold you

Please do not become a stranger, a laugh that I remember everywhere.
Please do not become a stranger, a laugh that I remember everywhere.

The light sparkles on the background of the party
The girls brought their shoes to the waiting room.
Candle and polaroid candles on solid wood
You and I are forever

Do not read the last page.
But I was in times when it was difficult or wrong or we made a mistake
I need your night
But I will cleanse you with the new year

Keep track of their memories.
Keep track of their memories.
Keep track of their memories.
And I will hold you

Please do not become a stranger, not a joke.
Please do not become a stranger, not a joke.

In the original lyric, it was a pint-jug that you were buying.

Apparently for the new year I will be traveling to Germany and going for a run.
