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.




A Tudor who tooted a flute
tried to tutor two tooters to toot.
Said the two to their tutor,
“Is it harder to toot
or to tutor two tooters to toot?”




A bitter biting bittern
Bit a better brother bittern,
And the bitter better bittern
Bit the bitter biter back.
And the bitter bittern, bitten,
By the better bitten bittern,
Said: “I’m a bitter biter bit, alack!”




I need not your needles, they’re needless to me;
For kneading of noodles, ’twere needless, you see;
But did my neat knickers but need to be kneed,
I then should have need of your needles indeed.




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!




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.




Silly Sally swiftly shooed seven silly sheep.
The seven silly sheep Silly Sally shooed
shilly-shallied south.
These sheep shouldn’t sleep in a shack;
sheep should sleep in a shed.




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.




A flea and a fly in a flue

Said the fly “Oh what should we do”

Said the flea” Let us fly

Said the fly”Let us flee”

So they flew through a flaw in the flue


Tongue twisters: , “Three gray geese in the green grass grazing; gray were the geese, and green was the grazing.”

Tongue twisters “Betty Botter bought a bit of butter, ‘But,” she said, ‘this 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 Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter, and it made her batter better.”

Tongue twisters       , and the letter “s” was his problem. Among the twisters he used were: “She sells seashells by the seashore”; “Sister Susie’s sewing shirts for soldiers”; “Slippery sleds slide smoothly down the sluiceway” ; “A snifter of snuff is enough snuff for a sniff for a snuff sniffer.”

Tongue twisters: “The seething sea ceaseth and thus the seething sea sufficeth us.”

Tongue twisters “Sinful Caesar sipped his snifter,  seized his knees and sneezed.”
