Babelfishing Poetry: "12 Rooms In The United States"

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

Today we Babelfish a number from the iconic musical West Side Story, "America" (watch a movie clip here).

12 Rooms In The United States

Puerto Rico,
and commitment to my heart.
Further into the sea.
The hurricane,
blowing a constant increase
in population for the money
at all times.

Solar flow,
steam and natural.
I love Manhattan.

Smoke a pipe,
I put love in America,
I, the United States,
the freedom of every American.

In America, a small fee.
Very good credit purchases.
Bon appétit pay twice
in one face to us.

I do my laundry.

And, even though
it was by pure,
skyscrapers bloom in America.
Cadillac handful in the United States.
U.S. Department Inayostawi.

12 rooms in the United States.

Most new homes have more space.
A door closed in our face a lot.
I want to get on the balcony floor
to avoid the tone of your best.

Life is hard in the United States,
if they can continue to fight
in the United States.

Life is like in America,
all America is white.
