Stick a feather in my cap and call me macaronic

Languagehat has a post about my new favorite verse style and word: macaronic.

Modern examples cited in the comments include Lady Marmalade, Michelle and some of the work of Leonard Cohen. I would add Côté banjo, côté violon, For me, Formidable and (my favorite) It is not because you are.

What are your favorites?

I rather like "Caress Me Down" by Sublime. :)

Mucho gusto, me llamo Bradley
I'm hornier than Ron Jeremy
And if you wanna get popped in your knee
Just wipe that look off your bati face

And so on until...

Sus padres, sus padres me trataron matar
But they did not get too far
Un poco despuis tuve que regresar
Con un chingo de dinero, cuz you know I'm a star

Yo fui a Costa Rica para comar
Estuve a practicaba con la raza, cuz they know who we are
No le dis cuenta and I bet you never will
You must be a muqeca if you're still standing still

I'll let you translate that on your own. :) Here are the rest of the lyrics.

Although it's a poor example, I like Human Again.
