This a version of Surfin' USA made by a Brazilian duo called Juba & Lula, in 1988. The language is Portuguese.
How bad is it?

A better foreign-language example of "Sloop John B" is the one in Czech by Pavel Novák, as it takes its cue from Brian's arrangement:

COMMENT:  Done a couple of these.  A language coach is at the session. Words are written phonetically, that is, by the way they sound, and after a few rehearsals, it's done.  ~swd

It's beautiful! But, I can't seem to stop laughing everytime they sing the chorus, it sounds they're saying "God's a lie".

Yes! I was actually talking about it today. Brazil definitely used it a lot in the 50s/60s/70s, almost every hit song at that time was written with this pattern.

NO GO SHOWBOAT = J'AI PAS LE TEMPS

Petula Clark sang this on a French record, but the lyrics were re-written so they've nothing to do with cars (so a translation of the title will have no connection)

this one can be found easily enough on compilation CD's
