Babelfishing Poetry: "I Sunburn (But I Enjoy It)"

Hello! Would you like to see some more Babelfishing Poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, alter the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem?  You would? Well, today's your lucky day!

The Chambers Brothers' mind-bending hit from 1968, "Time Has Come Today," is this week's song (listen to looooooong version of song here).  Enjoy. 

I Sunburn (But I Enjoy It)

This is now.
Young minds will be on the road.
Do not place the other day.
Please do not say I do.
As I said, I heard no.
This is now.

Ah, the rules have changed today.
There is no free place to sleep.
I think the UK hakiruttene.
I love to escape.
We kept waiting for completion of Wednesday, Thursday.
Here is my Lord, in the workplace.
I do not have homes.
Hi, I'm not home.

The time came.
Dad, not to run.
I sunburn (but I enjoy it).
I loved the impression of being saved.
India had a wave of akrobasi.
Others psychedelicized us.

The time came.
This means that you do not know.
This is now.
