What Did You Do With New Year's Day?

Through too many languages to track.
Quote:
All schools also include horns
We all know forever and ever
Lost or missing

Perhaps the game is very upcoming
Oh, but I'm interested
What is Eva's New Year?

As your arm, it is good and quick
That night was 12 hours
New Year's Eve, New Year's Evening

Maybe we're really tired
I always liked what I chose
Thousands of calls

Oh, but if I have a little chance
Here's where the jackpot questions are pre-ordered
What is Eva's New Year?
Eve New Year's Eve, What Did You Do With New Year's Day?

Not a carol, but I created a mashup of Luke 2 and "Twas the Night Before Christmas":

Quote:
In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that the whole world should be enrolled. This was the first enrollment, when Quirinius was governor of Syria. So all went to be enrolled, each to his own town.
And Joseph too went up from Galilee from the town of Nazareth to Judea, to the city of David that is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, to be enrolled with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. While they were there, the time came for her to have her child, and she gave birth to her firstborn son.
She wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

Now there were shepherds in that region living in the fields and keeping the night watch over their flock. The angel of the Lord appeared to them. He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, and his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.

He spoke not a word but said, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. And laying his finger aside of his nose, there was suddenly there was a multitude of the heavenly host with the angel, praising God and saying: “HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!”

Hey, since it's starting to look a lot like Christmas, you know what that means! (Finnish, French, German & back)

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas
Wherever you are
Look at the five and 10
It sparkles again
With candy and Aglow Silver Band.

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in every store
But the most beautiful sight is Holly, who
On the doorstep.

A pair of Hopana boots and a gun pushing
Is the vow of Barney and Benin;
Dolls talking and walking around
Is the hope of Janice and Jen;
And mum and dad can't wait for school to start again.

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas
Wherever you are
There is a tree in the Grand Hotel, one in the park,
It's a robust kind that doesn't care about snow.

It's starting to see a lot like Christmas;
Soon the clocks begin,
And the thing that makes her ring is Carol you sing
In the heart

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in every store
But the most beautiful sight is Holly, who
On the doorstep.

"All I Want for Christmas is You", English->Portuguese->Swedish->Polish and back.

I only need one thing.
I do not care about this gift
During the Christmas tree
I just want for you
More than you could know
Make my desire real
I just want for Christmas
you
I do not want much for Christmas
I only need one thing.
I do not care about this gift
During the Christmas tree
I do not have to hang my socks
Under the fireplace
Saint Nicholas will not make me happy
With a Christmas toy
I just want for you
More than you could know
Make my desire real
For everything I want for Christmas, you are
I will not ask too much this Christmas.
I do not even want snow
I'm just waiting.
Under the mistletoe
I will not make a list and I will send it
To the north pole of Saint Nick
I will not even be awake
Listen to these magic cleaners
Because I want you here tonight
He's holding me so tight
What more can I do?
All I want for Christmas is you
Oh, my love
All candles are lit.
So great everywhere
And the sound of children
Laughter fills the air
And everyone is singing
I hear the sled bells
Santa, you will not bring me what I really need
Will not you bring my child to me?
Oh, I do not want much for Christmas
That's all I'm asking for.
I just want to see my child.
I stand in front of my door
Oh, I want only for myself
More than you could know
Make my desire real
Baby, everything I want for Christmas
you
All I want is you, yes, you
All I want for Christmas is you


All in all it didn't come out that bad, apart from a few errors. Maybe I should have tried some different languages. I would like some of those magic cleaners for Christmas, though.


ETA: I took the Polish and sent it through Japanese and Hindi as well:

I only need one.
I do not have this gift
During the Christmas tree
I want only for you
Know more than you
I really want your wish
I just want christmas
you
I do not want much for Christmas
I only need one.
I do not have this gift
During the Christmas tree
I do not have to hang socks
Under a fireplace
St. Nicholas does not please me
With Christmas Toys
I want only for you
Know more than you
I really want your wish
What do I want for Christmas,
I do not ask too much for this Christmas.
I do not want ice
I'm just waiting.
Under mizuto
I do not make a list and I will send it
On the North Pole of St. Nick
I will not wake up
Listen to these magic cleaners
I want you to stay here tonight
He embraced me very much
What else can you do
This is you that I want for Christmas
Oh my love
All candles will be exposed.
Great anywhere
And children's voices
Laughing air
Everyone is singing
I can hear a sleep bell
Santa, I will not bring anything to me that I really want
Will not you bring my child to me?
Oh, I do not want much for Christmas
I'm just looking at this.
I just want to see your child.
I stand in front of my door
Oh, I just want to do it for myself
Know more than you
I really want your wish
Baby, everything i want for christmas
you
This is you, yes, whatever you want me to do
This is you that I want for Christmas

"What Child is This?" via Hindi, Nepali, and Hungarian:

What the baby is
Who started to relax?
Does she sleep at Mary's shepherd?
Hello, with whom angels make candy
Looking for shepherds?

Then bring him incense, gold and smell,
Be the master, the boss of the king
The king brings the king of salvation,
Allow love to push your heart.

Yes, this is the King of Christ,
To whom is cowboy guard and angel cow
Hurry, hurry, praise,
Babe, the son of Mary.

Oops, pick up the song up,
Her mother planted her.
Jai, the joy rises for Christ,
Babe, the son of Mary.

Yes, this is the King of Christ,
To whom is cowboy guard and angel cow

Hurry, hurry, praise,
Into a,
boy
Mary

Which child
This is it
Who kept it
to rest
Mary's shepherd
Mary's shepherd
Sleep

Did you know Annie Lennox wrote Il Est Ne?
Quote:
Songwriters: Annie Lennox / Mike Stevens
Il Est Ne Le Divin Enfant lyrics Universal Music Publishing Group, BMG Rights Management, Songtrust Ave
This was a very simple translation, and I love it. Resonate, mushrooms! From French to Samoan to English:

He was born, born
He was born, born
He was born, God the Child
Play, topbois, resonate, mushrooms
He was born, God the Child
All the songs are coming
From more than four million years
We proclaim the prophets
From more than four million years
We are waiting for this happy time
He was born, God the Child
Play, topbois, resonate, mushrooms
He was born, God the Child
All the songs are coming
Oh, she is beautiful, she is a nice person
May her graces be good
Oh, she is beautiful, she is a nice person
He is one, God's Child
He was born, God the Child
Play, topbois, resonate, mushrooms
He was born, God the Child
All the songs are coming
O Jesus, You King All-Powerful
Every little child you have
O Jesus, You King All-Powerful
Recommit it to us all
He was born, God the Child
Play, topbois, resonate, mushrooms
He was born, God the Child
All the songs are coming
There is no home to live in
Part of the straw, its feather
There is no home to live in
Pour out God, what's the water?
He was born, God the Child
Play, topbois, resonate, mushrooms
He was born, God the Child
All the songs are coming
He was born, God the Child
Play, topbois, resonate, mushrooms
He was born, God the Child
All the songs are coming
He was born, born
He was born, born

The beautiful "Christmas Waltz" waltzes through Vietnamese, Italian, and Hungarian:

Glass windows, sparkling candles
Colorful Candy rods on the tree
Santa Claus is coming, he has filled a sler for things.
Things you and I

This is the time of the year when people love
The cobbled song you hear, it seems that it says "Merry Christmas,
"New Year's dreams come true "
And this is my song three quarters of the time
Your desires and you are the same thing yet

"Jingle, Jingle, Jingle", through Punjabi, Scots Gaelic, and Filipino:


Jingle, Jingle, Jingle
You can hear my knee paddle slide
I am the old Krishi Killingal
I am a king of Jingling

Jingle, Jingle, Rainier
They go to the air frozen
They are not just honest
This is the fastest tool I know (yes!

You must believe that Christmas Eve
I will not go for you
I walk to my sorcery soldier
Traveling in the sky

Jingle, Jingle, Jingle
You can hear my knee paddle slide
I am the old Krishi Killingal
I am the King of Jingling (yes! Yes!) For your mercy and grace
It goes on for another year
Listen to our thankful songs
Hear the Father and Glory

Future to come; Give your light
Come on us, the day and the morning
Honesty and evil fight against enemies
Go back for war

In our weaknesses and statements
Rock of Power You're the Self Stay
In an unregulated forest
Be a real and vibrant way

Let us be faithful; Keep us clean
Keep yourself always
Help us, help us keep it
Make sure the crown is promised

Elvis's "Santa Bring My Baby Back to Me" through Icelandic, Malagasy, and German.

Don't need many gifts I
Making Christmas Bright
The kids need the guns I just got
Wound around me
Oh, my Christmas, Plett.
Santa brings my baby back

The Yolande Ready
Kertin all Aglow
But having a baby is a long way
What good is missearch
Oh, Hey, Santa, Plett
Santa brings my baby back

Flounder reindeer
Well, their time is approaching
I think it seems like Christmas
The baby came
Complete with candy socks
And a brilliant game and shiny
You want to make me happy and joy fills my heart
Then the Santa Claus, hear my plea
Santa brings my baby back

Flounder reindeer
Well, their time is approaching
I think it seems like Christmas
The baby came
Complete with candy socks
And a brilliant game and shiny
You want to make me happy and joy fills my heart
Then the Santa Claus, hear my plea
Santa brings my baby back

Then the Santa Claus, hear my plea
Santa brings my baby back

Here's One More Sleep Til Christmas from the Muppet's Christmas Carol, run through Catalan, Shona, and back to English:

There is electricity in the air this afternoon
Magic in the air
The world is on the best, you already know
Where people love and care
Feelings of emotion
It will be kept in one night
After all, on one dream until Christmas

The world must be mocked today
The world has to shine
There are no people who do not know
When someone says "Hello"
And each family
We are very happy
After all, on one dream until Christmas

"It's time to be happy and happy
With the explosion of joy, it looks good to us
It's a time when the saints can use us
Prepare the message over and over and continue to love

"Beautiful Christmas, tall".

There is something in the air today that is good for everyone
Yes, faith is our heart today, we are as sunshine
And everybody can hear it, a way of deep feeling
After all, on one dream until Christmas
After all, on one dream until Christmas day

"Jingle Bell Rock" through Slovak, Hawaiian, and Swahili:

Bell, alarm, alarm sound
He uses alarm and alarm
To sound and beautify
The final result started
Bell, alarm, alarm sound
Jingle's voice on the bell
Play and play on the Jingle Bell Hall
In cold weather
What a good time, good time
Stay at night
Jingle is a fun time
Walking in one horse
Giddy-up horse, lift your leg
Jingle goes straight
Arrange and connect the pistol legs
It's a beel tower
Bell, alarm, alarm sound
Jingle's voice on the bell
Play and play on the Jingle Bell Hall
In cold weather
Bell, alarm, alarm sound
Jingle's voice on the bell
To sound and beautify
The final result started
Bell, alarm, alarm sound
Jingle's voice on the bell
Play and play on the Jingle Bell Hall
In cold weather
What a good time, good time
Cover the Drum
Jingle is a fun time
Walking in one horse
Giddy-up horse, lift your leg
Jingle goes straight
Arrange and connect the pistol legs
Alarm
Alarm
This is a jingle (rock)
Bell, alarm, alarm sound
Bell, alarm, alarm sound
Bell, alarm, alarm sound

S'mai bawb:

Here is the first verse of the Huron Carol:

'Twas in the moon of winter-time
When all the birds had fled,
That mighty Gitchi Manitou
Sent angel choirs instead;
Before their light the stars grew dim,
And wandering hunters heard the hymn:
"Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born,
In excelsis gloria."

Here's what Chinese, Maori, Amharic, Hungarian and Pashto did to the entire carol:

"In the winter months
Every bird is on the go
It's a virtual man's power
He sent the angel to you.
Before the stars are blinded,
To see this song, Lavrova:
"Jesus, when Jesus was born,
In the Catalan language. "

It's broken in the skin
He is there,
That's right
Your Efficiency:
But he is the biggest champion,
Angel song is good
"Jesus, when Jesus was born,
In the Catalan language. "

In the first month of winter
It's not right
That's great
Young boy
Leaders progress
Fox and Leather Puppy Gift.
King Isaac and Isaac were born during Jesus' birth.
In the Catalan language.

Wild animals live in woods,
menito,
Live world and life
Today you were born.
When we introduce our baby
Who brings her beauty, peace and happiness?
"Jesus, when Jesus was born,
In the Catalan language. "

Where the NSFBSK did "In the Catalan language" come from?

Ta ra 'wan,

Ieuan "It's a virtual man's power" ab Arthur

“Thank You Very Much” from the 1970 film Scrooge, English-Armenian-Japanese-Amharic-English:

(For reference: The actual song, written by Leslie Bricusse and therefore very very catchy)

Kidneys
Here we meet for everyone.
I want to say that I can do it
It is our general view.
This is a very long time of commendation.
What did our friends do today?
So, I am

Thank you.
Thank you.
One person is very beautiful to me.
I'm a girl
I'm glad
I lost the battlefield.
If I have a flag, I'll disclose the flag
Increase final assignment.
But keep my banner at home
I want to talk
Thank you very much.

Thank you very much.

Thank you.
Thank you.
One person is very beautiful to me.
It looks a bit strange
But they are.
I feel like starting another life.

Had I had a box, I was offended.
Add a coronal link.
However, after leaving the ark, I left the house.
I want to talk

Thank you very much.

Thank you very much.

Thank you.
Thank you.
One person is very beautiful to me.
Not every day
My opportunities will come to me.
I did not think that the future would make me happy.
If I had some layers, I would find something famous.
Please add some features of your father
But I am out of the house
I want to talk
Thank you very much

No, friend, thank you.

She is a good woman
She is a good woman

I'm a good partner

And we all speak.

Thank you very much
(Very thank you).
Thank you very much
(This is a surprising thing for me to do for me)
Thank you very much
(Future)
Thank you very much
(By the way, it looks very bright)
Thank you very much
(I feel like I've sunk into the sun)
Thank you very much
Thank you very much
Many, many, many are very thankful.

And I had to fight if I had a drum.
Add one type of quote
However, I was dancing in the house
I want to talk
Thank you very much.
Thank you very much.

"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" via Afrikaans, Lao, and Russian:

Yes Yes
Become a little merry christmas
Let your heart shine
Then your problem disappeared, yes
Become a little merry christmas
Make homosexual
Then your problems will not disappear, oh
Here we are in old age
Hello golden day
True friend who loves us
They approach us
During the year we will be together
If fate allows
Sleeping stars are bright in the highest branch
Oh and excuse me
True friend who loves us
They approach us
During the year we will be together
If fate allows
But before that, we have to travel, oh, oh, oh
And now you get a joyful Christmas, oh, oh, oh


We all knew "gay" would turn into "homosexual". It seems it was the translation through Russian that did it -- I went back to English between each translation and "gay" came out right until it went through Russian.
