Around the rugged rocks the ragged rascals ran.


Mixed biscuits, mixed biscuits.
A box of biscuits, a box of mixed biscuits and a biscuit mixer!


Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepper.
Did Peter Piper pick a peck of pickled pepper?
If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled pepper,
Where’s the peck of pickled pepper Peter Piper picked?


Pink lorry, yellow lorry.
Red leather, yellow leather, red leather, yellow leather.


She sells sea-shells on the sea-shore.


The sixth sick Sheik’s sixth sheep is sick.
[Sometimes described as the hardest tongue-twister in the English language.]


Swan swam over the pond,
Swim swan swim!
Swan swam back again –
Well swum swan!


Three grey geese in green fields grazing.


We surely shall see the sun shine soon.
