The Lyrics

Esperanto, just a made up dead language
Sounds somewhat like Spanglish to so many now.
Even the U.N.
Has got no one to translate it
There’s nothing that makes it
A language we want.

Won’t you learn to speak some German boy
Guten tag, wie geht es ihnen?
Or some Japanese can help you order sushi

French and Spanish are two classes
I avoided while in high school
But the only language that they didn’t teach…

Esperanto, oh I just don’t think that I get it
But I just won’t let it drive me to the brink
And Latin, oh Latin, that’s just a language for Catholics
While praying at Mass which tongue does God really hear?

Cantonese is good at dinner time
Ordered wonton soup in the buffet line
It’s hard to separate the dialects
I know not what tomorrow holds
But I know that I won’t be told to speak…

Esperanto, it’s just some falsified phonics
Right there with Ebonics, oh who you be?
I’ll stick with English, but I may slip back into German
Wie buchstabiert man Wienerschnitzel?
(buchstabiert man Wienerschnitzel?)
Oh, wie buchstabiert man wienerschitzel?
Oh, es ist zu spaet!

For more Esperanto fun, dig out William Shatner's star turn in the horror movie Incubus!

Nu, almenaŭ ĝi ne estas fuŝ-Esperanto, kiel ... aĥ, ne licas ĉi tie hiperligi. Pli bone tiel: tio, pri kio mi pensas estas priskribita ĉi tiel: Oh my god, that is not Esperanto, that is badly garbled Esperanto pidgin English, with a lot of other stuff thrown in. What Eo there is, is translated word for word with no context or grammar and a lot of bad spelling. Do not, I repeat DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES give this to a beginning student of Esperanto.
