Babelfishing Poetry: "Mountain Braised"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Mountain Braised"

Once again, 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, tweak the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week's song, from those hirsute scalawags ZZ Top, is "La Grange" (listen to ZZ Top's version here, or watch video of Aussie rockers The Angels' fierce version here, or listen to a creepy interpretation by French singer-songwriter-poetry slammer French artist Renaud Papillon Paravel (who claims to have read only 3 books in his entire life) here, or listen to country rocker Hank Williams Jr's version here, or listen to Crazy Backwards Alphabet's Russian-language version here, or watch weird video (featuring a loser guy wearing a giant dog head) of Mexican rock band Molotov's Spanish version here).  Enjoy. 

Mountain Braised

texas and the city of the deployment around the Warrior News
La to Grand, and then walked away.
How do I know?
You know, then you'll see only what you want.
I am a home range,
the value of a girl.

Hawthorn, Hawthorn, hawthorn.  Hawthorn and hawthorn.
Mountain braised, mountain braised.
Mountain braised.

well, a good time;
I think I have heard of your paintings.
gmmm, gmmm.
then it will be "Closed" every night.
but now I cannot be WRONG.
gmmm, gmmm, gmmm, gmmm.
