If anyone ever had any doubt that English is indeed the lingua franca of the known universe, this song should dispel it. The opening line begins "Chocolate, lime juice, ice cream..."
To understand the rest requires a working knowledge of Hindi. This is another song - one of no less than fourteen - from the 1994 film Hum Aapke Hain Kaun...! As might be suspected this is a rather light-hearted number, although it is given the typical Bollywood treatment.
Running to 4 minutes 29 seconds, it is lip syched (that's mimed to you, Britney), by lead actress Madhuri Dixit, who was born in 1967; the voice actually belongs to a lady who was born in 1929, Lata Mangeshkar, one of India's best known and most widely recorded "playback singers".
"Chocolate Lime Juice" was composed by Ram Laxman with lyrics by Dev Kohli and Ravender Rawal.

It has long been speculated that the Soundgarden song "Black Hole Sun" came from the name of a sculpture in Seattle, but according to their frontman Chris Cornell the title came from a phrase he misheard on the news. The band's name did come from a sculpture.
"Pink Cadillac" was a B-side for Bruce Springsteen in 1984, but after Aretha Franklin sang about pink Cadillacs on "Freeway Of Love" the following year, Natalie Cole covered the song and had a hit with it in 1988.
