Babelfishing Poetry: Nonsense Is Not Good, Judy

It's time once again for more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, adjust the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Today it's Pink Floyd's classic "Money."

Nonsense Is Not Good, Judy

Money left to find a job,
high wages, more money.

You are good, which is a gas.
Acquisition with both hands
in cash and supplies:
new car, caviar,
four star fantasize.

I think I got the ball.
Currency, and vice versa.
I am all right, Jack.
Keep your hands from the stack.

Money and faith.
Do not give me that.
Nonsense is not good, Judy.
I am the first group
to travel the high level
of accuracy, and the plane
seems to learn.

Don, this is a criminal offense.
Share it fairly, but
my piece of cake does not.
Money, they say,
today's root of all evil.
But if you ask how high,
it is not surprising that
they do not sell anything good
far, far, far away.
