"I like that cadaver," Cyrus sings.


Miley Cyrus and Jimmy Fallon gave “Shape of You” a Hannibal-istic twist. During her appearance on The Tonight Show Wednesday night, the “Malibu” singer performed a version of Ed Sheeran’s hit song with lyrics that had been filtered through Google Translate and back again. Instead of “I’m in love with your body,” the words became, “I like that cadaver.”

Things got stranger as Cyrus sang, “I stand on your body’s curves. We do not like pressures stones make. But my organ drops right out. Yeah, I like that cadaver.”

Other songs that received this treatment include Rick James’ “Super Freak” (which becomes “Really Weird) and Dusty Springfield’s “Son of a Preacher Man” (as “A Minister’s Male Child”). If you ignored the awkward word jumble of the lyrics, Cyrus actually delivered a powerhouse cover of the latter as she belted, “The only person who ever contacted me was a minister’s male child.”
