Babelfishing Poetry: "Mama Got A Box"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Mama Got A Box"

OK, boys and girls, ready or not, 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, nudge the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week we reach back into the murky depths of 1975 and grab The Who's "Squeeze Box" to Babelfish (watch video here). Enjoy.


Mama Got A Box

Mama got a box
wearing a pressure in the chest,
and when the father comes home
you will not get any rest
because they play every night,
and music belongs to everyone.
Mama is the square of the pressure,
the father does not sleep at night.

Well children
do not eat dogs
and cannot sleep.
Street did not escape the curse
of music as a whole.
Go to the entrances and exits
and entrances and exits
and entrances and exits
from the exit.

I move to put pressure on you
to make fun of me like this pressure.
I was so in love with you.

Mama is the square of the pressure,
the father does not sleep at night.
