A Review: Composing Your Own PALINDROMES

WORDPLAY post #19
CREATIVE WORDPLAY including ad hoc examples
PARODY COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, March 2017.

Classic Palindromes  

Here are the 40 or so palindromes used in the parody-song "Bob" by Weird Al Yankovic; 
these were presumably selected for inclusion in the song based on being short, easy to pronounce, and potentially rhymable.

We arranged them alphabetically for your convenience. The Youtube link for the song is found here.

A dog, a panic in a pagoda.
Ah, Satan sees Natasha.
A Toyota's a Toyota.
Do geese see God?
Do nine men interpret? Nine men I nod.
Go hang a salami, I'm a lasagna hog.
God! A red nugget! A fat egg under a dog!
I, man, am regal- a German am I.
If I had a hi-fi.
Lisa Bonet ate no basil.
Lonely Tylenol. 
Madam, I'm Adam.
Ma is as selfless as I am.
May a moody baby doom a yam?
"Naomi", I moan.
Never odd or even.
No devil lived on.
No lemons, no melon.
No 'x' in Nixon.
Not a banana baton.
Now I see bees I won.
Nurse I spy gypsies - run!
O Geronimo, no minor ego.
O, stone, be not so.
Oh no! Don Ho!
Oozy rat in a sanitary zoo.
Pa's a sap. 
Race fast safe car.
Rats live on no evil star.
Rise to vote, sir.
Senile felines.
Too bad I hid a boot.
Too hot to hoot.
UFO tofu.
Warsaw was raw.
Was it a car or a cat I saw?
We panic in a pew.
Won't lovers revolt now?
