Babelfishing Poetry: "Dinah, Blow Up The Century!"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Dinah, Blow Up The Century!"

Hello! It's FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!! The WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!! YIPEEEEEE!!!!!!

And now that I've got that out of my system, let's turn our attention to this week's Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, tart up the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

So let's get the weekend rolling with the well-known traditional song "I've Been Working On The Railroad" (listen to a homespun rendition of the song here, a sassy and jivin' rendition here, a swingin' version here, or a slightly disturbing version here). Enjoy.


"Dinah, Blow Up The Century!"

Railroad.
I have been living in the railway line all day long.
I have been in the railway line.
Only time will disappear.
I cannot hear the whistle blow,
increase early in the morning.
You can hear the roar of the large intestine:
"Dinah, blow up the century!"

Dinah does not blow, Dinah does not blow,
Dinah does not blow up the century.
Dinah does not blow, Dinah does not blow,
Dinah does not blow up the century.

Dinah in the kitchen with people.
Someone is cooking, I know.
Dinah in the kitchen with the people,
and before playing a banjo.

Awards and complaints expressed EIO violins.
Awards and complaints. Violin expression: "Eioooo!"
Awards and complaints expressed EIO violins
before the game of old banjo.
