about

Palindrome, is the fancy word for words that are spelled the same backwards and forwards. It turns out that the words “mom,” “dad” and “sis” are all palindromes. The real fun comes when you turn all those words upside down. Special guests: Grammy-winner Buck Howdy on vocals and Grammy-winner Marcy Marxer on washboard.

lyrics

S-I-S spells sis
Sis spelled backwards still spells sis
Listen here mister, you’re talking about my backwards sister
Sis spelled backwards still spells sis

S-I-S upside down still spells sis
That’s right sis upside down still spells sis
She’s standing on her head and her face is turning red
But sis upside down still spells sis

M-O-M spells mom
Mom spelled backwards still spells mom
All us kids disperse when our mom is in reverse
But mom spelled backwards still spells mom

M-O-M upside down spells wow
That’s right mom upside down spells wow
Be careful not to hurt her, when you go to invert her
Turn your mom upside down and she’ll say wow

D-A-D spells dad
Dad spelled backwards still spells dad
It’s really not so bad to have a backwards dad
Dad spelled backwards still spells dad

D-A-D upside down is just a mess
Dad upside down is just a mess
Don’t turn him upside down unless you want to see him frown
Dad upside down is just a mess
