Welcome to Google Translate Poetry where we take classic poems, lyrics, and prose, run them through Google Translate several times, and post the results.

This is how it works: we start with the original English, translate it into a foreign language, translate that into another foreign language, and so on, until we have run through about 5 or 6 languages. Then we go backwards through the languages in reverse order back to English and presto: a new poem. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Imagine

Original:

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Method:

Think of the sky

Not hard to do

Do not kill or die

Imagine all those who live in peace, you

You can say that I dream

But I’m not alone

I hope you join us once

The world will be just one


Hey Jude

Original:

 

Hey Jude, don’t make it bad

Take a sad song and make it better

Remember to let her into your heart

Then you can start to make it better

 

Hey Jude, don’t be afraid

You were made to go out and get her

The minute you let her under your skin

Then you begin to make it better

 

And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain

Don’t carry the world upon your shoulders

For well you know that it’s a fool who plays it cool

By making his world a little colder

Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

Hey Yehuda, do not be afraid

You have to go and take it

When the skin is thrown down

Then start working better

 

When you’re sorry, you’re avoiding Jews

Do not take the world on your shoulders

Well, you know you crazy

Make the world cool and nothing


The Kennedy Inaugural

Original:

In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility—I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it—and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.

And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.

Method:

English – Polish – Somali – Portuguese – Latvian – Swedish – Latvian – Portuguese – Somali – Polish – English

Result:

Some generations play a key role in world history not give to freedom with the greatest risk. I am not ashamed of administration – they welcome them. I do not think we would change any of the others Generation, faith and respect for this problem makes us illumine You and all the winners and the beauty of fire can shine brightly in the world.

So people in the garden: do not ask what your country can do for you, ask how you can do your country


Smells Like Teenspirit

Original:

Load up on guns, bring your friends
It’s fun to lose and to pretend
She’s over-bored and self-assured
Oh no, I know a dirty word

Hello, hello, hello, how low

With the lights out, it’s less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto, an albino, a mosquito, my libido
Yeah, hey

Method:

English – Norwegian – Armenian – Indonesian – Dutch – Latin  – Dutch – Indonesian – Armenian – Norwegian – English

Hey Hey!

 

That light means less risk

We are here for fun

I feel stupid and contagious

We are here for fun

A mulatto, and Albina, an umbrella, my desire

In this way, a long life


The Wasteland Part 2

Original:

If you don’t like it you can get on with it, I said.

Others can pick and choose if you can’t.

But if Albert makes off, it won’t be for lack of telling.

You ought to be ashamed, I said, to look so antique.

(And her only thirty-one.)

I can’t help it, she said, pulling a long face,

It’s them pills I took, to bring it off, she said.

(She’s had five already, and nearly died of young George.)

The chemist said it would be all right, but I’ve never been the same.

You are a proper fool, I said.

Well, if Albert won’t leave you alone, there it is, I said,

What you get married for if you don’t want children?

HURRY UP PLEASE ITS TIME

Well, that Sunday Albert was home, they had a hot gammon,

And they asked me in to dinner, to get the beauty of it hot—

HURRY UP PLEASE ITS TIME

 

Method:

 

Method: English – Bosnian – Lithuanian – Arabic – Catalan – Arabic – Lithuanian – Bosnian – English

 

Result:

If you do not like it, you can keep it, I said.

Others can choose whether they can.

But if Albert refused to do it, it would not be because of the lack of language.

You must disturb him, I said that he looks very old.

(Thirty-one).

She said: “I can not run away and leave for a long time

“These are pills I would like to play,” he said.

(George has already been killed for five years).

The chemist said it would be fine, but I was never that way.

I’m a real fool, I said.

Well, if Alberto did not leave you alone, I said

What is a house if you do not want children?

You’ve chosen your time

Well, this week Albert was home, had a warm flight,

They asked me to eat

You’ve chosen your time

Daddy

Original:

If I’ve killed one man, I’ve killed two——

The vampire who said he was you

And drank my blood for a year,

Seven years, if you want to know.

Daddy, you can lie back now.

 

There’s a stake in your fat black heart

And the villagers never liked you.

They are dancing and stamping on you.

They always knew it was you.

Daddy, daddy, you bastard, I’m through.

And people never love you.

They dance and give you a seal.

You always know it’s you.

Dad, I’m finally done.


The Road not Taken

Original:

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

 

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

 

Method:

English – Azerbaijani – Punjabi – Vietnamese – Spanish – Norwegian – Spanish – Vietnamese – Punjabi – Azerbaijani – English

 

Result:

 

Two trees are separated from the golden tree

Sorry, but I can not travel

As a tourist I have been standing for a long time

They move away from me

Bowed to the rain.

 

Then there is another point

Maybe a better comment,

Grass and I want to use;

Even if it’s here


The Wasteland Part 1

Original:

 

April is the cruellest month, breeding

Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing

Memory and desire, stirring

Dull roots with spring rain.

Winter kept us warm, covering

Earth in forgetful snow, feeding

A little life with dried tubers.

Summer surprised us, coming over the Starnbergersee

With a shower of rain; we stopped in the colonnade,

And went on in sunlight, into the Hofgarten,

And drank coffee, and talked for an hour.

 

Method:

English – Bosnian – Lithuanian – Arabic – Catalan – Arabic – Lithuanian – Bosnian – English

 

Result:

 

April is the month of reproduction

Mix the dead oil

Memory, craving and mixing

Deep roots with spring motifs.

Winter is warm and covered

Dishes for party entertainment

Low level of life with dry rubber.

Year was surprised by Starnberger

With the things we stopped in the column

The sun continued at Hofgarten

Eat coffee and talk for an hour.


Like a Virgin

Original:

I made it through the wilderness

Somehow I made it through

Didn’t know how lost I was

Until I found you

 

I was beat

Incomplete

I’d been had, I was sad and blue

Yeah, you made me feel

Shiny and new

Touched for the very first time

Like a virgin

When your heart beats

Next to mine

Excellent new

 

Yes, as a virgin

Originally it was put aside

As a girl

When your heart beats

On my side


EvenFlow

Original:

Freezin’ rests his head on a pillow made of concrete again ooh yeah

Oh feelin’ maybe he’ll see a little betters any days ooh yeah

Oh hand out faces that he sees come again ain’t that familiar

Oh dark grin he can’t help when he’s happy he looks insane

Someday yet he’ll begin his life again

Oh whispering hands, gently lead him away

Him away, him away

Yes, I did not see

He left and left


The Star Spangled Banner

Original:

O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,

What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming,

Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight

O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming?

And the rocket’s red glare, the bomb bursting in air,

Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,

O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Method:

English – Dutch – Zulu – Albanian – Czech – Russian – Greek – Russian – Czech – Albanian – Zulu – Dutch – English

Result:

You say, see, morning,

How proud are we when we are at sunset,

The keys and the stars are on fire

Are these basics so painful?

And the light of the racket, the bomb exploded in the air,

Make sure our flag is present at night,

He says the asteroid flag is changing

Is a free country a proud city?


Billie Jean

Original:

She was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene
I said don’t mind, but what do you mean, I am the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round
She said I am the one, who will dance on the floor in the round

She told me her name was Billie Jean, as she caused a scene
Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round

People always told me be careful of what you do
And don’t go around breaking young girls’ hearts
And mother always told me be careful of who you love
And be careful of what you do ’cause the lie becomes the truth

Billie Jean is not my lover
She’s just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one, but the kid is not my son

 

Method:

English – Croatian – Portuguese – Hungarian – Russian – Japanese – Russian – Hungarian – Portuguese – Croatian – English

 

Result:

It’s more like a pretty girl like a movie scene.

Did I say I do not care what that means?

Who will dance on the floor in a circle

He said he danced in his palm.

She said she was called Billy Jin

So he goes to both heads when he is dreaming

Who will dance on the floor in a circle

People always told me to take care of what they did to you.

Do not stop the hearts of the young

And my mother always said I wanted someone who loved me.

See what you are doing. Because the lie is true

Billie Jean is not my friend.

She is the only girl who insists on me.

But the boy is not my son.


 

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

 

Original:

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Method:

English – German – Arabic – Punjabi – Vietnamese – Italian – Vietnamese – Punjabi – Arabic – German – English

Result:

Do not go to Earth tonight,

You have to burn the old time.

The anger, the anger of easy death

 

Although the wise people in the end know it’s dark,

Because his words do not deliver electricity

Do not slow down this beautiful night

 

A good man screams death after the last wave

Your weaknesses danced in pure blue water,

The anger, the anger of easy death
