Tongue Twisters   

Peter Piper picked a peck of pretty purple peppers.
A peck of pretty purple peppers Peter Piper picked.
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pretty purple peppers,
Where's the peck of purple peppers Peter Piper picked?

Betty Botter bought some butter,
"But," she said, "this butter's bitter.
If I bake it in my batter,
It will make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter,
That would make my batter better."
So she bought a bit of butter -
Better than her bitter butter -
And she baked it in her batter;
And the batter was not bitter.
So 'twas better Betty Botter
Bought a bit of better butter.

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck
If a woodchuck could chuck wood?
The woochuck would chuck as much as he could,
If a woodchuck could chuck wood.

Mr. See owned a saw.
And Mr. Soar had a seesaw.
Now, Soar saw that 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 when he saw that
See's saw had sawed Soar's seesaw.

Ned Nott was shot and Sam Shott was not.
So therefore 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, then Nott was shot.
But if the shot Shott shot shot Shott, then Shott was shot, not Nott.
However, the shot Shott shot shot not Shott, but Nott.

When a doctor doctors a doctor,
does the doctoring doctor doctor the doctor
the way the doctored doctor wants to be doctored,
or does the doctoring doctor doctor the doctor
the way the doctoring doctor wants to doctor the doctor?

You've no need to light a night-light
On a light night like tonight,
For a night-light's light's a slight light,
And tonight's a night that's light.
When a night's light's like tonight's light,
I wouldn't really think it's quite right
To light night-lights with their slight lights
On a light night like tonight.

I thought a thought.
But the thought I thought
Wasn't the thought
I thought I thought.

The shells she sells by the seashore are surely seashore seashells.

Imagine an imaginary menagerie manager
imagining managing an imaginary menagerie.

but the stump thunk the skunk stunk.
