Babelfishing Poetry: "End Of Dood!"

Babelfishing Poetry: "End Of Dood!"

Hello!  And how are you today?  Good?  Yes?  No?  In-between?  Rather not say? Keeping it a secret? It's a mystery?  Being coy about it?  Have to think about it a little longer?  Can't decide? Wanting to hedge your bets?  None of the above?  No matter how you are, I'm here to bring you this week's installment of Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, futz the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week's randomly-chosen feature, one of the most covered popular songs, with hundreds of versions released, is "Sunny" by Bobby Hebb (listen to Hebb sing it here, or watch a video of the song performed by German euro-disco group Boney M here, or listen to Andy Williams' smooth and cool interpretation here, or listen to Robert Mitchum, of all people, sing it here, or listen to David Clayton-Thomas' lounge lizard version here, or listen to Dusty Springfield's jazzy rendition here, or listen to Serbian-Yugoslavian singer Bisera Veletanlić sing it in Serbian here, or listen to Mexican singer Luis Miguel perform it in Spanish here, or listen to jazz pianist Cy Coleman's instrumental arrangement of the song, full of billions and billions of notes, here, or watch video by Mexican ska band Panteón Rococó here).  Enjoy. 

End Of Dood!

Sightseeing last heaven, my life's fruit, other outlined, other rain.
Weapons smile, Japanese solar light indisputably raising solutions, end of Dood!
Now it's heaven; black color, this.
Sun integrity
is true academics of first PC's solar light coquet of love you forever.

Scenic light, thank you; thank you a bunch.
Sightseeing, thank you; thank you, solder, come in love.
We supply owner; Japanese-owned.
No profit, 10-pound scale
is true academics of first PC's solar light coquet of love you forever.

Scenic, thank you, thank you; the blind appled a real telephone.
Scenic, thank you; thank you, other editorial, oz pop, out.
I cracked sand, wind, private life.
Our Kafr El-dawwar plum rock
is true academics of first PC's solar light coquet of love you forever.

Day good, o Muhammad; head into the smiling.
Secondary Japanese of deanie IP sense of thank you enlightenment.
Perfect for boys and then taking pictures of things.
East-West end beauty
is true academics of first PC's solar light coquet of love you forever.
