 SOME LONGER TONGUE TWISTERS:

She sells sea shells by the sea shore.
The shells she sells are surely seashells.
So if she sells shells on the seashore,
I'm sure she sells seashore shells.

 

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, like tonight's light,
It is really not quite right
To light night-lights with their slight lights
On a light night like tonight.

 

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?

 

Say this sharply, say this sweetly,
Say this shortly, say this softly.
Say this sixteen times in succession.

 

I am not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's son, 

but I'll be plucking pheasants, when the pheasant plucker's gone

 

When a twister a-twisting will twist him a twist,
For the twisting of his twist, he three twines doth intwist;
But if one of the twines of the twist do untwist,
The twine that untwisteth untwisteth the twist.
Untwirling the twine that untwisteth between,
He twirls, with his twister, the two in a twine;
Then twice having twisted the twines of the twine,
He twitcheth the twice he had twined in twain.
The twain that in twining before in the twine,
As twines were intwisted he now doth untwine;
Twist the twain inter-twisting a twine more between,
He, twirling his twister, makes a twist of the twine.

 

There was a fisherman named Fisher who fished for some fish in a fissure. 

Till a fish with a grin, pulled the fisherman in. 

Now they're fishing the fissure for Fisher.

 

If one doctor doctors another doctor, does the doctor
who doctors the doctor doctor the doctor the way the
doctor he is doctoring doctors? Or does he doctor
the doctor the way the doctor who doctors doctors?

 

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.
