Babelfishing Poetry: "The Day My Eyes Water"


Hello! Are you looking forward to the weekend? Me too.  So to get us through until then, how about some Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, modify the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week, for no particular reason than I was curious what would happen when I Babelfished it, is a song originally released in 1964 but which most people know from the 1992 Boy George version, "The Crying Game" (watch video here).  Enjoy. 


The Day My Eyes Water

I know the game is out.
I will appeal to the investors.
First the kiss, and depression.
However, in the previous case,
I say goodbye to you.

Monday, the day my eyes water.
If so, you should know how to describe the
ten thousand tears of pain.
However, you can stop feeling blue.
Love is lost.

Otherwise, you will not cry.
Otherwise, you will not cry.
Otherwise, you will not cry.
Otherwise, you will not cry.
