Funny tongue twisters to tangle your mouth.
I correctly recollect Rebecca MacGregor’s reckoning.
If a Hottentot taught a Hottentot tot
To talk ere the tot could totter,
Ought the Hottenton tot
Be taught to say aught, or naught,
Or what ought to be taught her?
If to hoot and to toot a Hottentot tot
Be taught by her Hottentot tutor,
Ought the tutor get hot
If the Hottentot tot
Hoot and toot at her Hottentot tutor?

If Stu chews shoes, should Stu choose the shoes he chews?
I’m not the pheasant plucker,
I’m the pheasant plucker’s mate.
I’m only plucking pheasants
Cause the pheasant plucker’s late.
I need not your needles, they’re needless to me;
For kneading of noodles, twee needless, you see;
But did my neat knickers but need to be kneed,

Mr. See owned a saw.
And Mr. Soar owned a seesaw.
Now See’s saw sawed Soars seesaw
Before Soar saw See,
Which made Soar sore.
Had Soar seen See’s saw
Before See sawed Soars seesaw,
See’s saw would not have sawed
So See’s saw sawed Soars seesaw.
But it was sad to see Soar so sore
Just because See’s saw sawed
My dame hath a lame tame crane,
My dame hath a crane that is lame.
