Main Question or Discussion Point

So I was reading an english text and I enounctered the following strange words: nebagonagibuop and nebegonalepudown. It's a science-fiction text, so it doesn't mean anything. I just wanted to ask how people on this forum would pronounce these words??

the queen (gawd bless 'er) would say …​

"never going to give you up"

"never going to let you down" :wink:
EDIT: ah, i thought it sounded familiar:

mr rick astley would say …

Never gonna give you up, never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you​

ne - BAH - go - nah - GIBB - wop

and

ne - BAY - go - nah - LEP - yood - own

according to my dictionary of the Nebago Narunarunan Dezatuu language. In addition to complex patterns of pitch and inflection, proper pronunciation requires dancing awkwardly.

What is that ? Could you share the source of fun ? mee too888

I once learned to speak Guangdong language (Mandarin) by myself, I wrote down all things the speaker said like that and repeated before other Chinese, I made a big laugh for everyone.
Welcome Newlifeform, you are certainly new here. It's just a joke. Maybe you are not familiar with the internet meme "Rickroling". You may notice that these words vaguely resemble the the lyrics.
