Hello! And how are you today? Bright and breezy? Cheeky and cheerful? Chipper? Top-notch? Super-duper? Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed? Full of sunshine? Rarin' to go? Full of ginger? Ready to face the day? Hunky-dory? In the swim? Peachy-keen? On the ball? Up to snuff? A-OK? Copacetic? Right on? Cooking with gas? Spiffy? Okey-dokey? First-class? Capital? Fly? All of those put together? None of the above? No matter, because, regardless, it's time for some more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, shake up the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.
This weeks it's British alt-rockers Placebo's song about friendship, "Pure Morning" (watch video here). Enjoy.
Wake Up Today, Chestnuts
The person you need is a friend.
Grass friends are the best.
You need to leave those who are good friends.
Worry about your best friend.
We'll just have a break.
It will bless us.
I'm in the air.
Need someone as a friend?
My Japan is good.
When he dies, he takes off his shirt;
that was a great boxer.
The person you need is a friend,
a very good sleep companion.
My friend said she passed the exam.
And we do not change anything.
Wake up today, chestnuts.
