Babelfishing Poetry: "3 O'Song"

Babelfishing Poetry: "3 O'Song"

Hello! You well? I hope so; well and happy.  Me, I'm not quite either this week, but such is life.  But let us not dwell on that and instead move on to Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, get silly with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week it's the traditional folk song "Green Grow The Rushes O" (listen to a Kidditunes version here, or watch a crappy live video with great singing by The Navigators here, or a folksy guitar rendition here, or the version from Sesame Street here).  Enjoy. 

3 O'Song

Among them, this song,
O soul become green power.
The first and alone,
I'll be ready then.

If two electronic songs,
O soul become green power,
what is the second o?
Secondly, the second boy -- White Lily,
over all the Green o'clothes.
The first and alone,
I'll be ready then.

3 o'song.
O soul become green power.
It's not what faith, yet?
Yet the three rivals!
The second, the second boy, White Lily.
At that time, all green, alas, clothed and in his right.
The first and alone,
I'll be ready then.

4 when the song,
o 4 Gospels.
Helmsman was a-missed, a-5.
Six proud pedestrians; 6!
Heavens to stars, 7-7.
April rainer eights.
9, bright spiral, 9.
10, the ten commandments.
Who is in the heavens and the Earth came out, 11:11 AM.
Apostle 12, 12.
