Everybody's heard of Peter Piper
And the Peck of Pickled peppers that he picked
That's such a silly simple children's game
That it hasn't even got a name
But I'd like to bet that it'll trip ya
Like to betcha that you'll have to say you're licked
If Peter Piper you pronounce with ease
Then twist your tongue around these.

Moses supposes his toeses are roses
But Moses supposes erroneously
For Moses's toeses are toeses, not roses
As Moses supposes his toeses to be

Kistle will whistle at bustly Miss Russell
Who'll rustle and bustle 'til Kistle will roar
Now Russell's asked Axle for Kistle's dismissal
And this'll teach Kissle to whistle no more

That's a tongue twister
It seems so easy 'til the word gets sprung
If you insist you want to try a list (not sure of this line)
Step up Mister and Twist your tongue

Hetta is hoping to hop to Tahiti
To hag a hibiscus to hang on her hat
Now Hetta has hundreds of hats on her hat-rack,
So how can a hop to Tahiti help that? Ho Ho Ho Ho

Theata thought Thora was thumping her thimble
But Thomas thought Thora was thumping her thumb
???
Said Theta, she surely is thumping her drum

Tito and Tato were tattooed in toto
But Toto was only tattooed on his toe
Tato told Tito where Toto was tattooed
But Tito said Toto's tattoo wouldn't show

Sheila is selling her shop at the seashore
For shops at the seashore are so sure to lose
Now Sheila's not sure of what she should be selling
Should she sell seashells, or should she sell shoes

Twistopher Twistle was twing to whistle but Twistopher twisted his tongue

I think I've got them all, but will go back and listen. I actually got through this one a few years ago. Boy did I feel clever.
