Babelfishing Poetry: "I Believe You.  Let Go"

Hello! And how are you today? Good? Yes? No? Maybe? Don't know yet? Rather not say? That's okay, because, regardless, 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, experiment with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week I remain stuck in my 80s rut with Nena's 1983 hit "99 Red Balloons" (watch video here). Enjoy.

I Believe You. Let Go

You and I have
a small bag of silver balloons,
we can buy in a toy store has.
From dawn until one left,
published at the end of the first half.
Back to the basics, software,
flash bug message, "Thing."
Summer sky 99 red balloons
floating in the go.

99 in the summer sky,
the alarm bells,
floating red balloon alerts.
Is there any other place to go.
War machine springs to life,
and open one eye,
and wants to focus on more
than 99 red balloons are fabulous.

Article 99 of the sky
on advanced fighter aircraft.
A person, a hero,
Captain Kirk, and
all the studying will be clearly classified.
0.99 go to summer
racing red balloon in space.

1999 has had a dream,
a red balloon in each.
Is over all, I dust this city
is very much.
You receive this gift
just to show the world
that this can be.

Here is a red balloon.
I believe you.
Let go.
