What English Sounds Like to Foreigners

This is insane! (in a good way). I got a tweet from MatadorNetwork about this and was blown away.

The song is called Prisencolinensinainciusol, written by Italian artist Adriano Celentano in 1972. Recorded by Celentano and Raffaella Carrà in an American accent, it sounds like it should be English, but the lyrics are pure gibberish.
