Babelfishing Poetry: "Ha Ha, I Got Something Japanese"

Hello! Are you looking forward to the weekend? Me too. I am hoping the rain holds off long enough on either Saturday or Sunday to get out to a nearby nature preserve for a couple of hours.  Otherwise I guess D. and I will have to pick a local museum to visit as an indoor activity.   To bide the time, let's enjoy some more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, tinker with the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

This week's song, from the 1976 film Car Wash, is R&B band Rose Royce's lovely "I Wanna Get Next To You" (listen to song here).  Enjoy. 

Ha Ha, I Got Something Japanese

Sit, Chair.
In the right hand, sweetie. the Tao of Things him
but the words you say.
and the blind man can, we will.

dime, I don't have
black and green, speak with your left hand.
Oh, it's beautiful, isn't it?
I'd like to.

the dream of sailing and
mine eye is scheduled.
You, to you, I am well.
No women, no agreement, no ask a question, a private find.

nice and chosay'.
I have you aggressive?
speak to me.
who said mind?

miss money, I am a boy and I know not.
It can imagine Acquisition
I see no value these days.
I want to always.
I'd like to.

Is your baby?

Oh, Yes, our State, and the Acquisition is removed
Ha ha, I got something Japanese.
It made me cry. dream.
and I want it.

I want.
