Tongue Twisters

Sometimes we all get tongue tied so have some fun with a few of these

Mrs. Batter bought some butter
but the butter was too bitter
so she bought some better butter
and made the bitter butter better.

Mr. See and Mr. Soar were old friends.  See owned a saw and Soar owned a
seesaw.  Now See's saw sawed Soar's seesaw before Soar saw See, which made
Soar sore.  Had Soar seen See's saw before See saw Soar's seesaw, then See's
saw would not have sawed Soar's seesaw.
But See saw Soar and Soar's seesaw before Soar saw See's saw, so See's saw
sawed Soar's seesaw.  It was a shame to let See see Soar so sore just
because See's saw sawed Soar's seesaw.

See's wife Sue and Soar's wife Sal.  After all See's Sue saw Soar before See
saw Soar and See's Sue saw See saw Soar's seesaw.  Soar's Sal saw See's Sue
and See saw Soar's seesaw, but wasn't sore because she hated Soar's seesaw.
Soar used to seesaw Sal so snappy he made Sal's stern sore.

Try saying each of these 5 times faster:

Red leather, yellow leather.........

Shine my city shoes....

A noisy noise annoys an oyster.

Rubber baby buggy bumpers.

The sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick!

Sixtysix sick chicks.

Peter piper picked a peck of picked peppers.

She sells sea shells by the sea shore.
