"Who be Paul Anka, di man behind di 'Put Your Head On My Shoulder?'"

The BBC offers its service in a ton of different languages, but when I came across this one, I couldn't resist posting it here. It's about Canada's Paul Anka and his famous tune "Put Your Head On My Shoulder." But it's written in Pidgin English, which is spoken in some African countries. 

The amazing thing is, while it's a bit hard to read at first, it's actually completely understandable. It just takes a bit of effort as you're going through it. Although why they keep switching it to put your Hand on my shoulder makes no sense whatsoever!
