Idris Elba and Jimmy Fallon during "Google Translate Songs" on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on July 31, 2017.

If you are ever bored and want to cheer yourself up -- turn to Google Translate. Jimmy Fallon of The Tonight Show is a big fan of this technique, and for good reason: This is Jimmy Fallon's Show Tonight sounds funnier than the original The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. If this seems amusing, just imagine how some classic American songs would sound when translated into Latvian or Chinese and back.

Want to know what "The Baby Escaped" and "Meet My Kids" were before going through the Google Translate mixer? Idris Elba and Jimmy Fallon are here to entertain you with the remixes of Sir Mix A Lot's "Baby Got Back" and Britney Spears' "Baby One More Time." 

First, Idris Elba gives his all to "The Baby Escaped" where "I like big butts and I cannot lie" becomes "I love large saplings that is the truth." Meanwhile Britney's iconic "Hit me baby one more time" transforms into "One day I will meet my kids" in Jimmy Fallon's Google-Translated version.    

To listen to the final duet "I'll Place Kindness On You," as well as the two other hits, watch the full Google Translate karaoke video below:
