Bablefishing Poetry: "Americans, Two New York Yankees And Doom"

Bablefishing Poetry: "Americans, Two New York Yankees And Doom"

OK, boys and girls, ready or not, 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, alter the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Today we are Babelfishing one of the best known American songs from the Great Depression, "Brother Can You Spare A Dime" (listen to Al Jolson's version of the song here). Enjoy.


Americans, Two New York Yankees And Doom

When I train,
built by the activity,
I was in a race against time.
Once built on, the railway
is currently underway.

You are, so,
can you give me a dime?

Once you know brick
and rivet and lime
from the solar tower construction.
After building, the tower
is currently underway.

You are a dear.
Can you give me a dime?

Khaki suit, well,
Americans, two New York Yankees
and doom: a look
at the full implementation of inflation.

Hell is a million boots slogging.
I am a child of the drum.

"Cannot remember
his own phone,
I do not have
a law firm," I said.
I said it.
Your friend,
I do not remember him.

What can Buddy dime?
