Good Tongue Twisters – poems and songs

Here are some good, funny and sometimes hard and challenging tongue twisters

I’ll start with a couple of tongue twister songs I put together for my other site for kids songs, SongDrops.com. First, is the youtube video of tongue twister Sally sells sea shells by the sea shore. I changed it a little to make it rhyme and to make it a little more challenging. This site cannot be reponsible for any tongue injuries which may occur while attempting this!

Youtube video of the kids song: Sally Sells Seashells by the shiny seashore
[youtube ptrA-e5abYE nolink]

And here’s the youtube video of my other tongue twister song, Peter Piper.
[youtube AnStAXLw4LY nolink]

Sally sells seashells by the seashore.
The shells Sally sells surely won’t sail
But since Sally sells sea shells and not ship sails,
Surely she’ll sell all the shiny sea shells she’s soon shipping on sale.

Uma Mona Newman
(An InnocentEnglish.com Original, by Bryant oden)

Short Version:

There once was a woman
Named Uma Mona Newman
She made her mom, Marilyn, M&Ms
She didn’t make the maximum
She only made the minimum.
She didn’t make them masculine
She only made them feminine.
And just for the millennium
She made them with chrysanthemum
And a hint of mint and cinnamon
Made by a man from Tiananmen.
And a minute amount of aluminum, for which there is no synonym.
Uma Mona Newman made a minimum of feminine cinnamon aluminum M&Ms.

Uma Mona Newman: Longer Version
There once was a woman
Named Uma Mona Newman
She made many mini-cinnamon M&Ms

One month for the millennium
I heard she made a minimum
Of at least a million of ‘em
And made some of ‘em feminine
She made them with illuminated
Aluminum chrysanthemums
With a minimum of cinnamon
Made by a man from Tiananmen

Uma Mona Newman
made for the millennium
a minimum of a million
feminine cinnamon
aluminum chrysanthemum M&Ms.

She was commonly nominated
For her M&Ms that demonstrated
Abdominally sophisticated
And perfectly administrated
perfection that was indicated
By the times that it was imitated
But not completely duplicated
By the many who insinuated
The complexity was overstated
But finally they were most persuaded
Though to admit it yes they hated
That she had a gift most underrated
Of making the M&Ms they ated.

Uma Mona Newman
made for the millennium
a minimum of a million
feminine cinnamon
aluminum chrysanthemum M&Ms.


If two witches were watching two watches, which witch would watch which watch?

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
He would chuck, he would, as much as he could,
and chuck as much wood as a woodchuck would
if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

A skunk sat on a stump and thunk the stump stunk,
but the stump thunk the skunk stunk

These thousand tricky tongue twisters trip thrillingly off the tongue .

Betty Botter bought some butter, but she said “this butter’s bitter! But a bit of better butter will but make my butter better” So she bought some better butter, better than the bitter butter, and it made her butter better so ’twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter!

A flea and a fly flew up in a flue.
Said the flea, “Let us fly!”
Said the fly, “Let us flee!”
So they flew through a flaw in the flue.

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
Did Peter Piper pick a peck of pickled peppers?
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,
where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

Perspicacious Polly Perkins purchased Peter Piper’s pickled products And peddled pretty popular pickles to produce a pretty proper profit!

If you stick a stock of liquor in your locker,
It’s slick to stick a lock upon your stock,
Or some stickler who is slicker
Will stick you of your liquor
If you fail to lock your liquor
With a lock!

Mr. See owned a saw.
And Mr. 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 sawed Soar’s seesaw,
See’s saw would not have sawed
Soar’s seesaw.
So See’s saw sawed Soar’s seesaw.
But it was sad to see Soar so sore
just because See’s saw sawed
Soar’s seesaw.

Ned Nott was shot
and Sam Shott was not.
So it is better to be Shott
than Nott.
Some say Nott
was not shot.
But Shott says
he shot Nott.
Either the shot Shott shot at Nott
was not shot,
or Nott was shot.
If the shot Shott shot shot Nott,
Nott was shot.
But if the shot Shott shot shot Shott,
then Shott was shot,
not Nott.

However, the shot Shott shot shot shot Nott not Shott.

Freshly-fried flying fish.

Greek grapes go great draped on crates of crushed dates.

There was a young fisher named Fischer
Who fished for a fish in a fissure.
The fish with a grin,
Pulled the fisherman in;
Now they’re fishing the fissure for Fischer.

The epitome of femininity
With double indemnity

    These were awesome!

    Here’s a longer version of Betty Botter:

    Betty Botter bought some butter
    But the butter, it was bitter
    If she put it in her batter
    It would make her batter bitter
    So she bought a bit of butter better than her bitter butter
    And she put it in her batter and her batter was not bitter
    So ’twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter.

    You forgot one of my favorites:

    I thought a thought,
    but the thought i thought
    wasnt the thought i thought i thought.
    If i hadnt thought the thought i thought i thought,
    I wouldnt have thought so much.

    Does anyone know a song where the lead line in each verse goes:
    “Susan, Susan, sitting in a (various occupations) shop/
    All day long she (various activity) and (slightly *other* activity),/
    All day long she (other activity, repeated) and (first activity, repeated) . . .

    which, when sung faster and faster, if mis-pronounced forms a borderline off-color term)?

    When a doctor gets sick and another doctor doctors him does the doctor doing the doctoring have to doctor the doctor the way the doctor being doctored wants to be doctored, or does the doctor doing the doctoring of the doctor the doctor the doctor as he wants to do the doctoring?

    Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villian by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. (he carves a “V” into a sign) The only verdict is vengence; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. (giggles) Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it is my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
