Babelfishing Poetry: "The Great Wei Dai, Sitting"

Hello? How are you?  Hope you're very well, fine, and dandy.  I've been struggling with my health this week, feeling very weak even while resting in bed, and hoping my doctor can give me more help with symptom management at my appointment next month.  In the meantime, though, here's more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, tweak the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

Buttons by hand.

Approach native-born grim physics team.

Cloth: Gloria or light?

Our 26 aerobic, my fossil.
I was, back in the day,
He threw his head.

The great   
Wei Dai,
