Babelfishing Poetry: 'Please Do Not Butter'

Hello! Are you well? I hope so; well and happy. It's Friday and time for more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, kludge the punctuation a little bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This time it's The Newbeats' 1964 hit, "Bread And Butter" (watch video here). (Until I saw the video, I never knew they were white guys. [And apparently a lot of the commenters on that youtube page didn't either.])

Please Do Not Butter

My bread and butter.
I'm toast and jam.
This is something my kids can hear.

I'm the man!
I fell in love with him.

He does not cook mashed potatoes.
His T-bone steak do not cook.
Please do not butter.
You know, I do not know already.

Interact with noodles
and a few others.
One morning early,
to our surprise,
he was eating chicken.

No more bread and butter,
toast already jam.
I found
some other people eat children.

No more bread and butter,
toast already jam.
I have a couple of kids.
Find someone else to eat.
