I did it i translated the whole song into Old English

This is what Anglo-Saxon scholars do with their ancient knowledge

I may have missed some diacritics, don’t worry too much about them

there might be some grammatical errors in here since I was working rather quickly and didn’t proofread

enjoy!

The fox from the What Does the Fox Say music video

You come into my inbox on my birthday to ask me if this 3-year-old video (which we know might as well be a million years old on the internet) to ask if the costume these guys wear is furbait?! Well, now that you got me angry, I’ll say Ylvis is hot in this suit and give it that title of furbait. Happy birthday, are you happy?
