Babelfishing Poetry: "Wake Up Today, Chestnuts"

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.
Chest etc.;
it's leather.

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.
Saturday morning!
