(Hello, hi:)

Rink-ringo, sha-hasha hat het hit hit (hit). Browaaaaaa, 2bruaaaa bret.

(Carly Rae Jepsen has recorded a rendition of "Run Away With Me" in Simlish, a language exclusive to the Sims in popularized computer game The Sims and also expansion packs like The Sims: Hot Date and The Sims 2: Apartment Pets.)

Here are some things you should know about Simlish, a language you might speak after falling off of a telephone pole or gathering friends to play Rock Throw, a rock-throwing game. These facts are via The Sims Wiki, a popular database for Sims enthusiasts or more casual players who neglect the game's newborns to force exciting confrontations with dutiful CPS agents:

Some say [Simlish] may be a mixture of Ukrainian, Navajo, Romanian, Irish, and even gibberish, but this has not been confirmed.


Common greetings include 'sul sul' and 'dag dag'. When there is a problem, Sims will say 'shooflee' and 'anaconda' often.


When some female Sims walk by another Sim, their greeting varies from 'Ooh, voodoo!' to 'Lick a rock!' ...pregnant Sims have been known to shout 'WooHoo!' while giving birth. When female elders play at the poker table in Nightlife, they will often say 'Texas Goushem'.

Carly's "Run Away With Me" update, featured above, has us shouting 'WooHoo!' to the ends of the earth. "Yabba fla-fluba dioxinoid," indeed.

The Sims 4: Get Together is available now.
