Babelfishing Poetry: "Logical, Rational, Logical, Boo"

Babelfishing Poetry: "Logical, Rational, Logical, Boo"

Hello! Would you like to see 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?  You would? Well hot diggity, you're in luck, because here it comes!

This week it's the traditional Yale University fight song "Boola Boola" (listen to the Haydn Quartet vocal ensemble sing the song here, or listen to a recording of Arthur Pryor's Band performing it here, or watch video of a player piano playing the song here, or listen to a music box rendition of the song here).  Enjoy. 

Logical, Rational, Logical, Boo

Why, then, are we here now, are we here now?
Just take a look at the note book.
Some of those removed Harvard University, improving management
again, and a new bug said,
"High superstitious throw."
You can no longer sit and sigh.
Boolean?  OK, Po!  Boolean, Boolean, Pu,
Logical, Bo, logical, rational, logical, Boo!

Boolean.  Boolea.  Boolean.  Boolean value.
Boolean.  Boolean.  Boolean.  Boolean.
Old faces a rough Harvard University,
others smell a Boolean.
On your way! On your way! On your way!  Stage!
Ale Ale!
Oops! Yale Yale!
