Jimmy Fallon and Miley Cyrus sang these rather bizarre renditions of songs like 'Shape of You' and 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough'.

What happens when you translate popular English songs to Croatian and back Watch

You think we’ve all overdosed on ‘Shape of You’ and its parodies? Well, Jimmy Fallon doesn’t think so.

Perhaps that’s why, when Miley Cyrus (in her new good-girl avatar) came on his show recently, Jimmy decided to have some fun.  

They decided to sing ‘versions’ of popular songs like Ed Sheeran's hit Shape of You and Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell classic Ain't No Mountain High Enough.  

Except, in these ‘versions’, they decided to use Google to translate the songs into Croatian, and then back into English.

Just in case you had any doubt, the results were definitely bizarre. Entertaining, but bizarre. See for yourself:

 So Shape of You becomes Your Body's Curves and the lyrics 'I'm in love with your body' become 'I like your Cadaver'. And  Ain't No Mountain High Enough became Landforms Don't prefer to Get High. Who thought that language butchered by the internet's cold precision could be so funny.

We don't know about you but we're definitely going to get Google Translating our favourite songs pretty soon!
