Babelfishing Poetry: "Canada Is A Large Exactly!"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Canada Is A Large Exactly!"

Hello!  And how are you today?  Bright and breezy?  Cheeky and cheerful?  Chipper?  Top-notch?  Super-duper?  Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed?  Full of sunshine?  Rarin' to go?  Full of ginger?  Ready to face the day?  All of those put together?  None of the above?  No matter, because, no matter what, it's time for some more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, revise the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week's Babelfish is the charmingly-named Canadian musical comedy trio Arrogant Worms song "Canada's Really Big" (listen to song here).  Enjoy. 

Canada Is A Large Exactly!

Show me around the war.
Anna saw that I believed in.
State men *[citation needed]*.
Because the work is lost
(a lousy economy),
just go to the army.
However, we can boast of her yin,
because Canada is a large, exactly.

This is governed by the biggest state laws.
This is the Earth.
Russia continues to contract.
So you're the first, shortly before the end.
(All of Quebec, how long do we hold?)

Perhaps the United States tank.
It is now Federal Republic of Switzerland.
They can keep them, and Guildenstern.
They are just the amount of bugs.
When it's your time,
what are you telling the truth there?
What you are doing?
Calculate the size!

Then stand up and be proud.
It's a loud song
because we were standing from the crowd.
Canada is a large exactly!
