What is Free Translator by the Books based on?

The Books have a song called "Free Translator" (YouTube link) in which the somewhat nonsensical lyrics started out as a "very well known folk song", but were passed through free web translators again and again until they became something completely different. Does anyone know/can anyone figure out what the original song was? It will be harder than it sounds. The answer does not appear to be on the internet yet...
