Jesus H. Tap Dancing Christ - In Hebrew?

I was watching the James Brown scene from Blues Brothers on YouTube, and for some reason it had Hebrew subtitles.

Apparently "Jesus H. Tap Dancing Christ" is translated to the Holy Tongue as בח'' 'שו המרקד

Anyone out there who can tell me exactly what that means?

it means something along the lines of,

"upon my life! Jesus the dancer!"

Loses something in translation, I guess :)

well, the בחיי is also a general clue that the coming is an oath or exclamation. I actually think the better translation is "By the life of dancing Jesus!" or even "By dancing Jesus!"
