Google translate is one of my favorite things to develop recently.  I love learning about other languages from across the world, but i love even more the kind of humor that shows up when things get translated badly from one language to another.  Google translate (and other similar things) are usually pretty good at single words or small phrases, but you need someone who understands context and idiomatic language to really translate things like songs.  Just to see what kind of hilarity would ensue, I translated Toby Keith's "How Do You Like Me Now" into Japanese and then back into English using Google Translate, and here's what I got.

I was always crazy
I entered the stadium came
I wrote a 50-yard line phone number
You were always one of perfect
Valadictorian and so,
Under your number I wrote call for a fun time

I want to catch your attention?
However, I somehow missed
Besides, the boyfriend had a lot to mention countless
And I play my guitar too loud.

Do you like me now how?
How then, do you like me now
Now I have it in my way?
Do you still think I'm crazy
Standing here today?
I could not make you love me
But I dreamed of living in your radio every time
Do you like me now how?

When I took off to Tennessee
I heard you that made ​​fun of me
Never imagined I would make it this far
Then married a girl of money
It is not a cruel and funny world?
He took your dreams, tore them apart.

He's not coming home
And you're always alone
To you and your children, you hear a scream down the hall
Alarm clock starts ringing
Who can sing
My baby wakes in response to the call!

Do you like me now how?
How then, do you like me now
Now I have it in my way?
Do you still think I'm crazy
Standing here today?
I could not make you love me
But I dreamed of living in your radio every time
Do you like me now how?

Tell me baby ...
I will be preaching.
