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...

aganjú: 'cause I like to know what I'm singing all the time.

Portuguese Song translation! "Aganjú" Google translate is failing me, I suppose I could try Babelfish, but I'd much rather have a native speaker translate it, as translation (particularly with respect to music and poetry) is an art, rather than a cut-and-dried process. [more inside]

French Speaking Music Lover Filter - Help me identify this french song o great hive mind?

Ok, so my french isn't just bad -- it's nonexistant. Can anyone identify the singer and/or title of the song of which there is a snippet inside? If not the singer, can you give me the proper title, or spelling of some of the lyrics so I can google them and perhaps find the singer that way? I love the smooth sound of this clip and would love to find more. It's a great rumba! :) [more inside]
