Let Betty twist your tongue now

Here’s another very well-known tongue twister and one that works quite well for my tongue. Does it work well for yours?

“Betty Botter bought some butter
But she said the butter’s bitter
If I put it in my batter, it will make my batter bitter
But a bit of better butter will make my batter better
So ‘twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter”

(’twas’ is the short form for ‘it was’)

Let Peter Piper twist your tongue

Try and twist your tongue around this little rhyme here:

“Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers
Where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?”

(This is actually one of my favourites and one that I have practised time and time again!)
