Babelfishing Poetry: "It Looks Like The Great River Euphrates"

Hello? How are you? Hope you're very well, fine, and dandy since your last visit here. And I hope you're ready to enjoy some more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, kludge the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Lined up for this week is a song from Syd Barrett-era Pink Floyd, on their 1967 album The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, "The Gnome" (listen to song here). Enjoy.

waiting time when the restaurant.

You can see the sky;
it looks like the great river Euphrates.
Sales arrived.

Day after day, hooray!
Another way of saying dwarf:
