Retranslated Christmas Carol Lyrics

Retranslations Of Translations For The Holidays By Robin Pearce (a
psychologist with time on his hands)
Yesterday I visited a translation website and translated some Christmas
carols into other languages, then back into English. The results as follows:

Jingleglocken, jingleglocken, jingle completely.
Oh which fun it is to ride into a horse-opened sleigh.
("Jingle Bells," translated into German and then back into English)

Ring of sleighbells, are you listening?
In the track the snow is shining.
A beautiful vista, we are tonight happy,
Walking in the country of the wonders of the winter.
("Winter Wonderland," Spanish)

Icily Snowman a lucky merry soul
With one was formed from a key corncob,
And the nose and two eyes, those from coal.
("Frosty the Snowman," German)

Rudolph the red-nose reindeer has had a nose a lot polishes, And if you
never saw it, you would even say that she emits light.
("Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," Italian)

You would improve the clock towards the outside,
You would improve not the shout,
You would improve not the codfish.
I is saying to him Papa
Noel is coming to the city.
("Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," Spanish)

Last year I sent my girlfriend a note translated into French that was supposed to say "You're the prettiest cookie in the whole jar." Translated back into English it read, "You are the most attractive cookie in the entire gravel pit"
