You may remember the scene in the first Charlie's Angels movie, where the angels were yodeling in front of the house wearing costumes. I have always wondered what they are saying but I can't find it anywhere. Does anybody know? Thanks.

This video has good audio of the singing, just ignore the (probably Hebrew) subtitles.

It seems they sing something, but I don't understand it. Somehow like the "German" Chaplin speaks in The Dictator.
Sorry!
Regards
Heinrich

Yodel Yodel Sep 10, 2010

This is what I understood when I watched the clip:

Hi hi hi (giggles)
Das Jodeln (not sure here) das ist sexy (Yodeling - not too sure about the first words - is sexy)
(Then they yodel for a bit)
Das Jodeln das macht Spaß (yodeling is fun)
Die Engel jodeln mit (the angels are yodeling too)
(The last line sung by Drew totally escapes me, sorry)

Hope that gives an impression of how important that little song is

Cheers,
Peggy

In the first go I did not understand a word! I must be losing my hearing... or their accent is terrible. I must listen to it several times (for scientific reasons; please nobody think I am interested in the legs!!).

Hm... Something like "Mache ich au' keinen Witz damit"? (I'm not joking about it either)

I really think we need an expert here: a third-generation American with grand-parents from Bavaria or something!

They had lousy accent coaches Sep 10, 2010

I heard the following:

Mein Ziegenbock ist sexy. Ja.
[yodeling]
Das Yodeling das macht froh
[yodeling]
Das Yodeling geht mal so.
[yodeling]
Die Engel jodeln mit
[yodeling]
machen Schalk und Witz damit.

I'm not sure about the third line, though. BTW, in the dubbed German version they changed the lyrics:

Thanks everybody for your input.

Yeah... They speak German a few different times in that movie and I had wondered if it was any good. (Incidentally, Cameron Diaz speaks one line of Japanese earlier in the movie, and it is very terrible... lol almost unintelligible.)
