Definitive proof that Babelfish may be okay for ordering escargot, but it sucks for translating poetry:

From Saint-Malo let us j'avons party On a quite pretty frigate For s'en to go dedan the Dedam English Channel the English Channel towards Bristol-board to go to attack the English. One loffe, one loffe at the same moment One throws the hooks dedan C'est with great blows of hashes and D 'armes And c'est with great blows of L'Anglais gun bring its house.

Now I have even less of an idea what it means than when it was still in French.
