A man, a plan, a canal, Panama.
Sit on a potato pan Otis.
Rats live on no evil star.
satan, oscillate my metallic sonatas.
Mr owl ate my metal worm.
Was it a rat I saw?

OK, should be "Woo oow".

The Palindromes have just been dropped from their record label for not living up to their promising name. Singers Hannah, Bob, Viv, Lil, Anna and Nitin are severely disappointed.

My favourite sung palindrome has to be:

Peel's foe, not a set animal, laminates a tone of sleep

From the classic Kew: Rhone album by John Greaves and Peter Blegvad.

Somewhere on YouTube there's a Weird Al Yankovic parody of an early Dylan video clip where Weird Al does a song to the tune of Dylan's 115th Dream but with every line a palindrome. I think there's a link to it in some thread here that you could probably find easily enough with a search for some keyword.

Sorry, I should have checked that one before posting.

The response, of course, should be "Oow oow"

Anyway, real examples sought.

Maybe this will get covered to exhaustion in the current thread re. Baby Gramps. And apologies if this theme has previously been mentioned / squeezed dry....

Are there any songs that include palindromes - successive words rather than just single words (eg using the name Eve)?

I've often thought of a singing group called The Palindromes. With a name like that they would have to be a doo-wop group. They could start with:
Lead singer "Woo woo"
Harmony    "Oow woo"

etc etc
