    As a linguist, I really appreciate this. Nice find! You get a rep for that.

    I don't know if you found this or made this up. If you made it up, it's interesting: When the brain finds sounds that it recognizes linguistically, it automatically tries to order the sounds in some kind of logical fashion. That's why you 'mishear' things if you don't catch all the information. You cannot do this for languages you don't know or that are completely foreign, but for sounds that seem similar to your language, your brain naturally does it.

    If you found it, just discard what I just said.

    I discovered that song a while back, and played it on repeat for days! Very catchy/funky, and I love the dance moves.

    Fantastic. I've wondered that myself, considering English is my second language, and I can' remember how it used to sound to me before I understood it, this has always been a topic that fascinated me.

    Is this driving anyone else insane? My brain keeps trying to figure out what is being said. I feel like I'm there, but not really. * rips out hair*

    interesting! i made it up... at first i was just listening, but then when i got to the "EYES!" part, i just laughed, because all i could hear was "EYES", and then the images started pouring in. it made me think of those hilarious bollywood translation videos - i've always wondered the extent to which the lyrics were altered to just be funny. so that's when i started "translating" this one... it was an interesting process actually... sometimes the phrases would flow easily and sometimes i would have to listen several times. like at first "cuddlebuzz" was "cuddlebutt", except the zzz sound in there tripped me up when i listened again and was reading along with my own lyrics. i couldn't think too hard about it, either. i would just hear phonemes. but if i was just a little bit distracted - if i played with a pencil or something - that's when i would get the best words.

    I love that video in the OP. I couldn't stop listening to it back when I first discovered it.

    My mom's side of the family is Italian (as in born-and-raised in Italy - Italians. Not the guido type) and I love the way they make fun of American accents. The describe it as a nasaly ejaculation via gum flapping.
