Babelfishing: I Am A Missile Person


More Babelfishing poetry.  Here's what happens when I run Elton John's "Rocket Man" through Arabic, Vietnamese, Tagalog, Swahili, Chinese and a couple of others for good measure.


I Am A Missile Person

This is my bag packing last night, on the plane.
12:00, 9 . . .
 I was so high at that time.
 I remember a lot of land, too.
 Please do not forget my wife.
 It is only an external space station flight forever.
 I think this is a very long time
 open to me round again
 to find I never thought
 I was home, oh, no, no, no.

I find that I hate. That's the way of missiles.
I am a missile person.

Rocket man, burning furnace
to make a single.
