Babelfishing Poetry: "The Snake Is Not Connected"

Babelfishing Poetry: "The Snake Is Not Connected"

Hello! You well? I hope so; well and happy.  If not, perhaps 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, will help you feel a bit better.

This week's feature is the old Tin Pan Alley ditty "Erie Canal Song" (a.k.a. "Low Bridge, Everybody Down," "Fifteen Years on the Erie Canal," "Mule Named Sal," and "Fifteen Miles on the Erie Canal") (listen to Bruce Springsteen's version here, or listen to Pete Seeger's live version here, or listen to the Kingston Trio sing their version of the song here, or watch the Veggie Tales video here, or listen to Dan Zanes' version featuring Suzanne Vega here).  Enjoy. 

The Snake Is Not Connected

It has been long, Carver; five wholes!
It is long, but five whole tone.
There is a tree's shade tree, big Japanese city.
Centimeters only, single beef close by.

No aim at blind women these days.
So you are; I will never trust a part of his year.
The army would understand to catch a mule.
Rome waving his arms, Denmark 6:00 PM run, and feedback;
all of buffalo's house.

A friend of mine was doing well; I am nowhere.
So what is all the hate?
The lounge is a friend of him.
Now, now, there is no expensive exit row.
Buffalo stalking municipal water.

So, you want it? Year?
The snake is not connected.
She is a beautiful girl's former US maiden name.
As usual, beef eat grass, food, light.
Then, King Aston and the buffalo, you want to know about phaser?

In the clip, there is a section in the State.
Castle City in the same way.
If you know, neighbor is always always always first Spa 7 born.
The value of rock.
