Babelfishing Poetry: "Their Shoes Are Taoist"

Hello!  And how are you lovely bloggity people today?  Great, I hope.  Me, I've had a horrible week.  So what's a good antidote for a horrible week?  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, that's what.

And what could be a sunnier mood-lifter than some classic Beach Boys?  Here's their iconic hit "Surfin' USA" (watch badly-lip-synced video with a weird intrusion of a spoken voice near the end here [it had the best audio overall; sorry]).  Enjoy. 

Their Shoes Are Taoist

Please refer to the U.S.
I cycle all Californian Å,
and each person.

They wear the Baggies.
Their shoes are Taoist,
and bushy.

Most images
the United States.

I have been arrested in March this year.
The search.

A partial internal
United States.

Ventura County line,
Santa Cruz and all
areas of Manhattan.

The road is under Doheny.
Everyone has to go surfing
and skating in the U.S. state.

We plan for all roads very quickly.
We are under
the waxing surfboards, we.

We cannot wait
for one month in June.
We would all disappear for the summer.

You will be on our way.
We talk to the teacher to use,
to use the United States.
