Babelfishing Poetry: "You're In The Flowers"

Babelfishing Poetry: "You're In The Flowers"

Hello all!  So nice to see you. Come in and have a look around -- the kettle is on, make yourself a cup of tea or coffee and make yourself comfortable. You are just in time for more 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 feature is singer-songwriter Ron Pope's "A Drop In The Ocean" (watch video and read lyrics [click Show More] here). Enjoy. 

You're In The Flowers

I am the end of my imagination.
If you're like me,
how many hours do you recommend?
So we have to go now.
When it comes to the east,
hot heat.
Look late;
it also helps.

I trust a lot of my old friends.
I regret that I am sorry.
God is the only God.
New England noun changes.
You will be asked for the ultimate goal.
I have a child, Mr. Boyfriend.

I can't stand
Torqodx every night.
Don't let this happen.

Sharp doesn't seem to nibble on the blind man like other women's eaves in the summer.
Catato is not far.

Only the sea otter,
the last day of the change.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR YOU, and I can't say
I think the rain falls in the desert.
But the speech for you
belonged to the Paradise.
You're in the flowers.
