I Palindrome I
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 (Snake head)
Eating the head on the opposite side (Snake head)
I palindrome I (Man o nam)
I palindrome I (Man o nam)

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 (Snake head)
Eating the head on the opposite side (Snake head)
I palindrome I (Man o nam)
I palindrome I (Man o nam)
I palindrome I (Man o nam)
I palindrome I (Man o nam)

"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 (Snake head)
Eating the head on the opposite side (Snake head)
I palindrome I (Man o nam)
I palindrome I (Man o nam)
I palindrome I (Man o nam)
I palindrome I (Man o nam)
