Babelfishing Poetry: "He Was Afraid To Remain Stupid"

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, have some fun with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Do you remember 1987? Do you remember the BoDeans? (Or, as they initially called themselves, Da BoDeans, until too many people were calling them The Da BoDeans, so they got rid of the "Da" to stop confusing people?) Anyway, they had a sort-of hit back then with this week's Babelfish, "Say About Love" (listen to song here). Enjoy.


He Was Afraid To Remain Stupid

I say love makes the world turn,
but he flew to Rome.
There was a love story.

But what is love?
In short, a bad reason and time must work.

I must say, if he has enough love,
there was a love story.
But what is love?

Also, they write books about the love of books.
Sometimes, they say,
it was love.

He was afraid to remain stupid.

Sometimes love is fast disappearing.
The love; that was it.

But what is love?
Ooh! Yes, I say! Alas!
Also, love is all around.

The only problem is you are trying to follow,
but the love of power.

Love is a dangerous step.

The love; that was it.
But what is love?
Oh!
