The star of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon – which is, of course, Jimmy Fallon – enlisted Idris Elba to help belt out some English lyrics put into Latvian via Google Translate then returned to English. Although we believe that the word “allegedly” should be in there somewhere…

Yes, party poopers that we are, we tried the same thing with the same lyrics and got wildly different results to Fallon (or his writers)…

Here are the abridged lyrics to Sir Mix-a-Lot’s Baby Got Back that they used…

I like big butts and I can not lie
You other brothers can’t deny
That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
And a round thing in your face
You get sprung, wanna pull up tough
‘Cause you notice that butt was stuffed
Deep in the jeans she’s wearing
I’m hooked and I can’t stop staring
Oh baby, I wanna get wit’cha
And take your picture
My homeboys tried to warn me
But that butt you got makes me so horny
So, fellas! (Yeah!) Fellas! (Yeah!)
Has your girlfriend got the butt? (Hell yeah!)
Tell ’em to shake it! (Shake it!) Shake it! (Shake it!)
Shake that healthy butt
Baby got back!

Now, here they are in Latvian via Google Translate (hello to all of STACK‘s lovely Latvian readers)…

Man patīk lieli dūri un es nevaru melot
Jūs citi brāļi nevar noliegt
Tas, ka meitene pastaigās ar itty bitty vidukli
Un kārta lieta jūsu sejā
Jūs atrodaties, gribi uzvilkt grūts
“Tāpēc, ka pamanāt, ka muca ir pildīta
Dziļi džinsā, ko viņa valkā
Es esmu līks, un es nevaru pārtraukt skatīties
Ak baby, es gribu saņemt wit’cha
Un uzņemiet attēlu
Mani homeboys mēģināja mani brīdināt
Bet tas muca jums padara mani tik ragveida
Tātad, draugi! (Jā!) Fellas! (Jā!)
Vai tavai draudzenei ir muca? (Pie velna, jā!)
Pastāstiet viņiem, lai krata to! (Sakrata to!), Krata to! (Sakrati to!)
Kratīt šo veselīgo mucu
Baby atgriežas!

Here’s a picture of Sir-Mix-a-Lot to break up the huge wall of text above…

…and, finally, here are those Latvian lyrics converted back to English (with a couple of admittedly funny lines found in translation)…

I like big fist and I can not lie
You can not deny other brothers
The fact that the girl walks with the itty bitty waist
And there’s a thing in your face
You are, you want to be tricky
Because you notice that the butt is full
Deep in the jeans she wears
I’m hooked and I can not stop watching
Oh baby, I want to get wit’cha
And take a picture
My homeboys tried to alert me
But this barrel makes you so horny
So friends! (Yes!) Fellas! (Yup!)
Does your girlfriend have a butt? (Hell yeah!)
Tell them to shake it! (Shake it!) Shake it! (Swear it!)
Shake this healthy barrel
Baby is back!

Suffice to say that their Britney and Boyz II Men lyrics are highly suspect as well.

Still, it’s fun seeing Idris Elba do, well, anything – so here’s the clip!
