Babelfishing Poetry: "I'm So Cold (And I Want Wikipedia)"

Hey, it's Friday! It seems like a minute ago it was Tuesday. How did that happen? It's a mystery to me. (I am mystified easily.)

Anyway, Friday means more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, change with the punctuation a little bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week we give the Babelfish treatment to The Police's classic song "Every Breath You Take" (watch video here). Enjoy.

I'm So Cold (And I Want Wikipedia)

Despite this,
and to take all measures to you,
your bonds are resting.
And every step you take,
I will see you.
Every day,
every night I will see you.

Oh, you belong to me?
I cannot see.
What steps?
A step that hurts my poor little mind?

If you move all,
break all vows,
and all the fake smiles,
the percentage of each claim,
so that I look at you.

I left you without a trace.
I am tonight,
I see your face in a dream.

I look around;
I have not been solved.

I'm so cold,
and I want Wikipedia.

Me, please.
The baby, the baby is crying.

Create a step.
Move one step each time.
And I --
then I'll be watching you.

If all steps all the same,
each bound to break,
every button you rest,
I can be watching you.
