Of course its not English! The Italian singer and comedian, Adriano Celentano, invented this language, made of words with no sense or meaning - complete gibberish - but sounding like English* as a leg-pull about non-English speaking people singing along to English pop songs. He was mocking the increasing amount´╗┐ of English songs being played in Italy back in the 1970s when very few Italians spoke or understood English yet they listened to the songs and sang along.

*Hmmm. Sounds like some politicians we all know!
