Babelfishing Poetry: "I've Got A Cloud"

Babelfishing Poetry: "I've Got A Cloud"

Hello! Are you looking forward to the weekend? Me too. The forecast here is for 64º and partly cloudy. And I hear we spring forward this weekend too. (Daylight Saving Time, woo-hoo. *fist pump*)

Anyway, it's time right now to spring forward into more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, convolute the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Today, the Alan Parsons Project song "Don't Answer Me" gets Babelfished (watch video here). Enjoy.

I've Got A Cloud

If that is the magic power,
I changed my mind.
But again, if people believe,
I've got a cloud.
If we live in a dream world,
a way of life,
we gave up a one-minute crazy,
throwing all of this.

No, answer me!
I broke the silence!
(I also do not rock.)
No, answer me!
Staying on the island sector.
No, I can escape and hide it all.
You can change the things he says!

If that is the magic power,
it is anyone's guess.
So, if you need someone to believe,
this is my pretend.
It is not enough, the audience.
I can give you freedom.
I mean, it cannot go back forever.
