Babelfishing Poetry: "And The Bed Began To Howl With Laughter"

Hello all!  Thank you for dropping by again, it's so nice to see you! I hope, wherever you are, you're safe and can breathe easy if you're near any of the various wildfires raging in western North America at this time.  I am luckily far enough away that I've only seen hazy skies and orangey sunsets in my neck of the woods.  Even the moon at night has a sepia-colored pall over it.  So while we wait for the fires to be out and the smoke to clear, let's enjoy some 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.

This week's feature is fictional boy-band Happa-tai's parody song "Yatta" (watch barely-SFW video and read along with the English translation here).  Enjoy. 

And The Bed Began To Howl With Laughter

So, go ahead!

Two green letters.
Easy for you!

Very funny.
It is more than a bad mouth!

No matter what you want,
We need all the milk.
This is life to us!

It is famous.
This is an intense example.
The closest competence, my failure!
Everyone says: "Ata!"

Japanese short, but
Chao Do'maq good.
But nothing is overlooked.
So in the future,
we'll see rabbits.

It is well known.
We slept nine hours!
And the bed began to howl with laughter.
We don't want anything, so it's okay.
After that, we will do it.
If it is true,
the king is good.

I wear a big drink thing!
Show me the sun is hot!
My intellectual path, Nakyoku Transportation, I am neglective!
The meat in the gallows-maker, he's dead already!

Political atrocity.
Like Ndbella, this could be a dance!
You're here to be very interesting.

It is well known.
College College,
our shadow star.
Magazines must be with us!
Let us be the same and be happy.

Two letters and green.
