The Comedian Harmonists

The Comedian Harmonists were a German vocal group of the 1920s and 1930s. The vast majority of their songs were performed in their native language. But in the clip below, they tackle an English-language song phonetically, producing a language that does not resemble any on Earth.

Heer ist goot muzak! Vat ou dont ouderstaand?

Actually I think the age of the recording is more to blame than the singers. Anyhow, I do love a cappella singing.
