Babelfishing Poetry: "Otherwise, Move On"

It's Friday!  It seems like just a minute ago it was Tuesday.  How in blazes did that happen?  It hardly seems possible, does it?  Well, be that as it may, it's once again time for more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, alter the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

From Pete Townshend's 1980 solo album Empty Glass, here's "And I Moved" (a song he originally wrote for Bette Midler; listen to song here).  Enjoy. 

Otherwise, Move On

When I look out the window,
she seemed to have,
uh, lied to his eyes.

I moved and I saw
him standing at the door.

Private rooms
from the whole of his personality.


Otherwise, move on.


And his hands are like ice,
his empty suit
is an interesting feeling.
