Babelfishing Poetry: "I Am One Of Several Million U.S. Dollars"

Hey guys!  I hope you've all been fine and well? No upsets? No disasters? No tornadoes, floods, unexpected sinkholes, avalanches, mudslides, blizzards?  I hope not, I really do, because that would be so sad.  And we're not here to be sad.  We're here for something fun -- more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, get goofy with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Today's song, "Red Red Wine," was written and originally recorded by Neil Diamond in 1968, but most people are more familiar with UB40's 1983 hit version of it (watch their video of the song here).  Enjoy. 

I Am One Of Several Million U.S. Dollars

Red wine!
And --
But . . .

Red wine!
For example:
But what am I to do?
But this in particular,
you will lose.

I think.

I have sinned,
I think.

Red wine!
I'll leave you alone.
blue heart and blue.

We had a very good wine!
Always Myshmarh.
Red wine!  And feel!
I am one of several million U.S. dollars.
Glass of red wine! I'm sad
when I see a bad walk.
We had a very good wine!
Very clean, and it is used in an aircraft.
Buddadi wine!
Pastor Loytingh, there is something very special for me.
Red wine, you know, it's very disappointing!
Then, as a gift.
Dhesho, you just love red wine!
Then my mind.
Road 80.  Red wine!
People will come.
