Lyrics Translation Game

    Ok so I was bored, and I decided to put a small portion of a famous song into babelfish translator, translate to Japanese and translate back. Can you tell what the original song was?


    Edit: Words like 'you'll and you've' etc. have been replaced with their full form (you will or you have).


    Connect that to the world.
    Connect that to you yourself.
    Extension that likes the compression of the origin.
    Like love, medium bitterness,
    And the new life for those which it hides you are brought up.
    When seeing, being seen, It is left over,
    Excessively,
    Is young it is young,
    It is cruel anywhere.


    Hint: It's a British band, and the first verse of the song.

      Slightly edited version, closer to original:

      Link that to the world.
      Link that to you yourself.
      Extension that likes the compression of the squeeze.
      Like love, the bitterness,
      And the new born for those which it hides you are brought up.
      When you've seen, seen, It is left over,
      Too Much,
      Too young, it is young,
      It is cruel everywhere.



      Some words are now correct smile

      I know it is... The first two lines are the closest to what it is, I may have to give more clues...

      Shows how good the translator is xD

    Sounds like some of the assembly instruction sheets that come with Chinese products.   with all of the connections . . . and something being left over.

      No, it is not Elbow.

      Think of synonyms for 'Connect' in the first two lines, those two are almost the same.

    "remains to be seen" in there somewhere?

    I could begin to replace little bits with the real words perhaps? Would that be a good clue?

    I know it, thanks to Google, but there's no way I would have guessed otherwise. I don't know the song.
