Aug. 1 (UPI) -- Idris Elba joined Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show to sing new versions of popular songs whose lyrics had been reworked by using Google Translate.

The sketch Monday started with The Dark Tower star performing Sir Mix a Lot's Baby Got Back, which was renamed The Baby Escaped after it was translated from English to another language and then back to English using Google.

"A few of your siblings were here. That woman showed up and has small hips with a sleeve around your head!" Elba sang from the bizarre lyrics. "Thus, male friends (yeah), male friends (yeah). Did he meet your wife's back?"

After Fallon sang a version of Britney Spears' ...Baby One More Time, which was translated into Meet my Kids, the late-night host teamed up with the actor for a duet performance of Boyz II Men's I'll Make Love to You, which translated into I'll Place Kindness on You.

"I become in debt when you tell me to plow," the duo crooned.

Elba will next be seen opposite Matthew McConaughey in the upcoming action thriller The Dark Tower which arrives in theaters on Aug. 4.
