Babelfishing Poetry: "I Am The Gagnant"

Babelfishing Poetry: "I Am The Gagnant"

It's Friday!  It seems like a minute ago it was Tuesday.  How did that happen?  It's a mystery to me.  Anyhoo, being Friday, it's time for more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, modify the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week's subject, a show tune from the 1949 Rodgers and Hammerstein musical South Pacific, is "Happy Talk" (watch video clip here, or watch a rather pedestrian rendition by a failing-at-being-camp Captain Sensible here) (I feel sorry for that parrot).  Enjoy. 

I Am The Gagnant

Words are coming.
Knowledge of the rules, your talking-about.
Yet another dream.
If you have a dream,
how he will make the dream a reality?

Disagreement over the air electrode surface.
For more information, see the Lily Lake.
Discussion on training aircraft.
You can get each song.

Bird talk like sports.
Rod of choice in men.
In the case of the modern girl and boy,
especially all those who are numbered.

Two small men and women who said,
''Whoa, baby, I am the gagnant."
Two small men and women who said,
"This to us will come!"

If you're not satisfied,
was it a dream?
You can now do a dream!

It's also a good idea, one of your views.
