Backwards - Lyrics

This song is much funnier backwards
Backwards funnier much is song this
It's a little song that I wrote recently
Recently wrote I that song little a it's
You simply take the line and break it into two
Two into it break and line the take simply you
I am not afraid to try
Try to afraid, not am I!

This is my backwards song - it is!
It song backwards my is
This is my backwards song
Backwards my is this

Instead of rain, the sunlight was streaming
Through my window and onto my bed
Bed my onto and window my through
Streaming was sunlight the rain of instead
Toes your on you keep to verse that flipped I suppose
Suppose I flipped that verse to keep you on your toes
I am not afraid to try
Try to afraid, not am I!

This is my backwards song - it is!
It song backwards my is
This is my backwards song
Backwards my is this
Now, When I wrote this song some time ago I did a big speech here where I lifted palindromes like "racecar" and "Hannah". Then at the end I did the whole speech backwards and it was quite impressive. But I like to think I've moved on now so I no longer need to rely on cheap gimmicks, tired old formulas, you know easy laughs. I'm not a monkey. I can do other things. One two three four five six seven eight nine ten. see, I can count to ten. So I refuse to base my entire career on one silly party trick and as such I will not be speaking backwards today. O.K.?

K.O.? Today backwards speaking be not will I such as and trick party silly one on career entire my base to refuse I so. Ten to count can I see. Ten nine eight seven six five four three two one. Things other do can I. Monkey a not I'm. laughs easy, know you, formulas old tired, gimmicks cheap, on rely to need longer no I, so now on moved I've think to like I but, impressive quite. Was it? and backwards speech whole I the did I end the at. Then "Hannah" and "racecar" like palindromes lifted I where here speech big a did I. ago time some song this wrote I when now.

(Sung)
This is my backwards song, backwards my is
This is my backwards song, backwards my is
This is my backwards song, backwards my is
This is my backwards song
