Babelfishing Poetry: "Windows With Needles"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Windows With Needles"

Hello! Lovely to see you, and woo-hoo, it's Friday already!  Let's kick off the weekend with some Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, get silly with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week's song, one of my favorite summertime songs (as long as I ignore the slightly stalker-ish lyrics), is One eskimO's "Kandi" (watch video here).  Enjoy. 

Windows With Needles

Here is a good no.
I love you, my love.
The blind man measures each day.

But if I'm WRONG,
I think I must say them and run away.
But I want to know! And, Jonathan-guy,
I beg your pardon?

Why, why? Where are you?
How to turn off, o Muhammad?
One people capable of laughter, of telephone, owned and lost.

After that, it hurts bad.
After that, windows with needles.
When I hear of a newborn child, and I want to know,
I beg your pardon?

He called every night, son.

Don't touch your boyfriend, ever.
This friend, Prada?
The mass is enough, not good enough.

He was the son on the phone every night.
