Eye Palindrome Eye

This is my absolute new favorite video. It's Weird Al channeling Bob Dylan where all the lyrics are palindromes. How can you top that? Seriously, give it a listen.

haven't watched the vid yet...but are you a TMBG fan too?!

Precie said...

LMAO! If I start another blog, I'm going to call it UFO TOFU.

Hey, Precie. I guess I'm not, since I'm not sure what TMBG is by initials.

They Might Be Giants

I thought your post title referred to their song, "I Palindrome I." If you're not a fan, I'm guessing you soon will be...and they have some cool kids albums out too.

"I Palindrome I" Lyrics:

Someday mother will die and I'll get the money
Mom leans down and says, "My sentiments exactly,
You son of a bitch"
I palindrome I (I palindrome I)
I palindrome I (I palindrome I)
And I am a snake head eating (snake head)
The head on the opposite side (snake head)
I palindrome I (manonam)
I palindrome I (manonam)

See that bulletproof dress hanging from the clothesline
See the medical chart with the random zig-zag
Now I'll help it decide
I palindrome I (I palindrome I)
I palindrome I (I palindrome I)
And I am a snake head eating (snake head)
The head on the opposite side (snake head)
I palindrome I (manonam)
I palindrome I (manonam)
I palindrome I (manonam)
I palindrome I (manonam)

"Son I am able," she said "though you scare me."
"Watch," said I
"Beloved," I said "watch me scare you though." said she,
"Able am I, Son."

See the spring of the grandfather clock unwinding
(Egad, a base tone denotes a bad age)
See the hands of my offspring making windmills
(Egad, a base tone denotes a bad age)
Dad palindrome Dad
I palindrome I (I palindrome I)
I palindrome I (I palindrome I)
And I am a snake head eating (snake head)
The head on the opposite side (snake head)
I palindrome I (manonam)
I palindrome I (manonam)
I palindrome I (manonam)
I palindrome I (manonam)

Ah-ha! Yes, indeed my title was a reference to I Palindrome I. I just didn't figure out the initials. I don't own any albums, but I've had roommates several times in my life with that specific CD with I Palindrome I, My Evil Twin, and Fingertips, etc. And, yeah, I enjoyed it a lot. Not sure why I never bought anything. Probably because I always seemed to have some roommate with the CD.
