Babelfishing Poetry: "In The Slums Of Time"

Hello, lovely to see you! So glad you've popped by my humble little blog, where every Friday is devoted to Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, tart up the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Today we are Babelfishing Michael Franti's "Say Hey (I Love You)" (watch video here, and here too). Enjoy.

In The Slums Of Time

I tell you, I will go today,
but I will in the street.
Please tell me.

Looks like I'm going to
see it everywhere, I know.
But I love you, Love,
and it will love you.

Know one thing:
I found many parts of the road.
Please see me, a lot of fun,
I saw a lot of pain.

But I do not want to write
a love of the world,
I hope to write a book
about a boy and a girl's song.

Jean Keys' corner calls my name
and my kids play corner
in the slums of time.

Do you want me to make it?
Please see me well
when I saw down your eyes
that know the truth.

But now I'm very metaphysical.
I have one, you know,
when the stars are hitting
the middle of the road link.

And her eyes adjust,
and you suddenly know.

On the dance floor with you
at night between June:
exciting dance moves.

she was so good luck to you,
I cannot lose it.
