Gettin’ Homophonic

Find a poem in a language that you don’t know,
and perform a “homophonic translation” on it.
What does that mean? Well, it means to try to translate the poem
simply based on how it sounds.

  1. Thanks for the laugh! Misheard lyrics are always a delight! There was this song everywhere a couple of years back, and it drove me insane that I only understood the chorus — I kept thinking “they are on the way down to where? What’s going on?” Then somebody pointed out that it was German, not English — and the mystery was (kind of!) solved…it’s not a way down, their feet are hurting. The horror!
