The Song “Baby Got Back” Translated into Latin

“Baby Got Back“, also known as “I Like Big Butts”, is a hit rap song written and recorded by American rapper Sir Mix-a-Lot, from his album Mack Daddy. The song samples the 1986 Detroit techno single “Technicolor” by Channel One. This is a translation of it. Translation Here, we have it translated into Latin by Quislibet. There was additional support and clarity offered by Ukelele. I have found it hilarious, and thus have reprinted the translation here. Enjoy. Text Content

De clunibus magnis amandis oratio Mixaloti equitis

mehercle! (By Hercules!) Rebecca, ecce! tantae clunes isti sunt! (Rebecca, behold! Such large buttocks she has!)

amica esse videtur istorum hominum rhythmicorum. (She appears to be a girlfriend of one of those rhythmic-oration people.) sed, ut scis, (But, as you know) quis homines huiusmodi intellegere potest? (Who can understand persons of this sort?) colloquuntur equidem cum ista eo tantum, quod scortum perfectum esse videtur. (Verily, they converse with her for this reason only, namely, that she appears to be a complete whore.) clunes, aio, maiores esse! (Her buttocks, I say, are rather large!) nec possum credere quam rotondae sint. (Nor am I able to believe how round they are.) en! quam exstant! nonne piget te earum? (Lo! How they stand forth! Do they not disgust you?)

I like the grammatical Latin translated back to English. Amusing.

Many years ago, SNL did a skit of a french singer in a piano bar who sang, 'The Way We Were' but said she translated it 'from the English to the French and back to the English again'.

Naturally the words and meaning changed.

Then there's this classic of translations:
