This Italian song is sung entirely in gibberish designed to sound like American English. Not only is it brilliant, but it's actually an awesome song to boot!

The song is called "Prisencolinensinainciusol" by Adriano Celentano. It was a single released in Italy in November 1972.

Yep! Good choice of 'nonwords'! Culture needs little comprehension of language to 'get the gist! lol!

Kind of like me speaking 'Eastern Euro mix'; Ishka pashka dashcuu ba tuo? Ah! bishki pusto mashta bah! Bushti pulo? Ma ishtoolka! [lol!]
