OK, boys and girls, ready or not, it's time for more Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, modify the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.
This week's feature is country music artist Lefty Frizzell's "If You've Got the Money I've Got the Time" (listen to Frizzell's version here, or listen to jazz pianist Mose Allison's version here; and yes, the Babelfishing process really did generate that North Korea line all by itself without any "cheating" on my part). Enjoy.
I'm So Excited I'm Going To Play With North Korea And I'm Going To Be Able To Get Away With It!
I changed my behaviour, my teacher, my son.
I have a specific situation:
I'm not happy with what I'm talking about.
Breathing is useless. Let's start tonight,
upon our watch, and in our views.
After that we are thirsty.
It's annatto, it's annatto, and it's annoying.
My transformation, my deeds, my old man, my son.
We have certain specific things to blame.
This is a Japanese-style concave tank that looks like a building.
If you swear, if you admit it, you will.
I'm so excited I'm going to play with North Korea and I'm going to be able to get away with it!
The same goes for that; it's in the middle.
But it is unreasonable, unreasonable, female, and other generals.
People without silver honey have more time.
