Babelfishing Poetry: "Living Convenience"


Hello!  And how are you today?  Good?  Yes?  No?  And are you ready for 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?  Yes?  Good!  No?  Here it is anyway!

Who could ever forget that bold jungle yodel emanating from speakers across the land in 1985 when Baltimora hit the airwaves with "Tarzan Boy"?  (Watch video here).  Enjoy. 


Living Convenience

Oh, oh, 55,555,555,555.
Life in the woods.
I am far from anywhere in China,
like Tarzan Boy.
Hide and seek, I play with,
and blowing through the forest.
Monkey business is a sunny afternoon.

Life in the woods.
I live in the open.
Mother bear to overcome them.
Fire lit.
Breathing fire into the sky and reference.
I sat down, I know you for your message.
Night-night.
Give me a chance tonight.

Life in the woods.
Apart from what you are, this is all right.
You are not to miss the house.
Drop everything, seize the opportunity.
Come with me.
Please do not be afraid.
Living convenience.



Commentary:
I love how the Babelfishing process turned the Tarzan yell into 55 some-odd billion. Which is about how many times I heard that yodel after the song came out.
