Babelfishing Poetry: "Hell, Ice Cold"

Hello! Friday, Friday, Friday! Woo-hoo! *fist pump* It's time for more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, have some fun with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Today Tears For Fears' 1985 hit "Shout" is rendered even more stark by the Babelfishing process (watch video here). Enjoy.

Hell, Ice Cold


But not all.

These are things you can do.
Come on, tell me to go.

Eight days of violence,
and his soul is not required.

Black and white, of course;
you really want to know
these ideas and methods.

He took the boy's work.
They kiss goodbye.

You fly for joy if you do not.
You fly for joy if you do not.
He is to you, and gives life
to your payment and
hell, ice cold.

I want to live to tell about it.
I want to live to tell about it.
