The World’s Toughest Tongue Twister

The sixth sick sheik’s sixth sheep’s sick.

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?

Red lorry, yellow lorry, red lorry, yellow lorry.

Betty Botter had some butter,
“But,” she said, “This butter’s bitter.
If I bake this bitter butter,
it would make my batter bitter.

But a bit of better butter–
that would make my batter better.”

So she bought a bit of butter,
better than her bitter butter,
and she baked it in her batter,
and the batter was not bitter.
So ’twas better Betty Botter
bought a bit of better butter.

Six thick thistle sticks. Six thick thistles stick.

A big black bug bit a big black bear,
made the big black bear bleed blood.

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.

Shy Shelly says she shall sew sheets.

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!”

A noisy noise annoys an oyster.

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!

I cannot bear to see a bear
Bear down upon a hare.
When bare of hair he strips the hare,
Right there I cry, “Forbear!”

Tim, the thin twin tinsmith

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