Babelfishing Poetry: "This Is A Prince Charming Month"

Babelfishing Poetry: "This Is A Prince Charming Month"


It's Friday!  It seems like a minute ago it was Tuesday.  (How on Earth 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, change up the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week's featured song, originally composed by Cliff Friend & David Franklin in 1936, is "When My Dreamboat Comes Home" (listen to Fats Domino's swingin' version here, or listen to the Count Basie Orchestra's suave rendition here, or listen to Henry "Red" Allen & His Orchestra perform the song here, or watch video of jazz/swing band Cornet Chop Suey here, or listen to Brenda Lee's perky rockabilly rendition here, or listen to Guy Lombardo & His Royal Canadians' somnambulant interpretation here).  Enjoy. 


This Is A Prince Charming Month

When the water has been independently
riding the name, I saw a dream.
But this month is ideal.

Water.
Love the site.
Forgive me my name.
England is my dream line.

The car of my dreams,
take the name, I saw a dream.
But this is a Prince Charming month.

Water,
I love you.
Forgive me my name.
This is a dream.
