Story about this misheard lyric by: Laura W.

I think my problem is that I actually expected the lines to relate to one another. In my version, they do--I figured that whoever is being thanked gave the speaker a lot of cheap presents. I wasn't smart enough to figure out that the introduction to the chief was a totally separate event. I still like my version better.

The Lyrics:
Beispiele paranormale Tonbandstimmen.
Was sind paranormale Tonbandstimmen?
Es sind Stimmen unbekannter Herkunft.
Es sind paranormaler Tonbandstimmen
Ihren Klang. Ich verstehe die Sprachen.
Ich verstehe die Sprachen nicht.
Ich hore nur Irhen Klang.

Later: Beispiel Nummer zweiundzwanzig.
Why:
The German text of this song by expirimetnal performer Laurie Anderson is about 'voices' that mysteriously appear on a audio tape with no known source. According to Sing365, the lyrics translate as:
Examples of paranormal voices on tape.
What are paranormal voices on tape?
They are voices of unknown origin.
They are paranormal voices on tape.
Your sound. I understand the languages.
I don't understand the languages.
I hear only your sound.

This translation gives the basic idea, although in this context I would translate 'sprachen' as 'speech' or 'words' rather than 'languages.'
