Tongue Twisters



This first track is a series of tongue twisters, each said twice, with space in between them for you to try twisting your own tongue.  From the Alvin Schwartz Collection, read by George S. Irving.
 

1. Double bubble gum bubbles double.
2. Black bugs blood.
3. A big blue bucket of blue blueberries.
4. A bootblack blacks boots with a black blacking brush.
5. Bonnie Bliss blows big beautiful blue bubbles.
6. A cup of coffee in a copper coffeepot.
7. A noisy noise annoys an oyster.
8. Old oily Ollie oils oily autos.
9. A pale pink proud peacock pompously preened its pretty 
   plumage.
10. As the roaring rocket rose the restless roosters rollicked.
11. Six slippery seals slipping silently ashore.
12. Six silent snakes slithering slowly southward.
13. Shining soldiers!  Shining soldiers!  Shining soldiers!
    (Must say 3x!)
14. Sheep shouldn't sleep in a shack, sheep should sleep in a 
    shed.
15. I never smelled a smelt that smelled as bad as that smelt  
    smelled.
16. Strange strategic statistics.
17. Tim the thin twin tinsmith.
18. Which is the witch that wished the wicked wish?
19. Who washed Washington's white woolen underwear when 
    Washington's washerwoman went west?
20. Yellow yo-yos.
21. This is a zither.

And this one below is a nice, longer one about bad butter.

  1. I loved this record as a child! Perhaps you can help me - I *used* to have a digital recording of side A of the record, and the mp3 was lost when my previous computer died. I know this might be a bit much coming from a total stranger, but is there any possibility you could help me get a new digital recording of that record's side? I would be willing to compensate you in some way. Please contact me - Adam Goss at saganth@yahoo.com (or saganth@gmail.com)
