Babelfishing Poetry: "Lift Up One Foot, Horse Music"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Lift Up One Foot, Horse Music"

Hello! Have you been enjoying the holidays? I hope so.  I haven't been doing anything particularly special because I'm still too ill to handle anything remotely resembling holiday festivities.  So during my quiet days I've put together for you some more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, goof around with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

It's Christmas Day, so here's "Jingle Bell Rock" (listen to Brenda Lee's version here, or listen to Bobby Helms' original version here, or watch video of a slightly bemused-looking Billy Idol sing the song here, or listen to a radical re-make by Christian-metal band Thousand Foot Krutch here).  Ho ho ho. 

Lift Up One Foot, Horse Music

Jingle bell, jingle bell, bell of jingle.
Ring the bells, jingle llglgl and prestige of the first song.
Who are some new eyes and entertainment?
Jingle jump start.

Jingle bell, drum, jingle drum, jingle stones.
Bell chime, the only time he jingle jingle bell BERNARDO.
Dancing drum jingle.
Cold weather, too.

Time to turn on and
use God at night.
Tinkles and his wife, time is the time
to go ice skating.

Lift up one foot, Horse Music.
Program for a few hours.
Form the mixture, blend rhythms and echoes.
Jingle drums.
Macedonian bell inflation.
Jingle rock bell.
