The Lyrics

Try singing this song three times fast!
She sells, she sells, seashells by the seashore
Twisting my tongue, Tricky tongue twisters
Four furious friends fought for the phone, for the phone
Two tiny tigers take
Taxis to town

This crazy game that no sane person can do
Say these words quick, just try: “Fresh fried fish”

Fresh fried fish, fresh fried fish
Fresh fried fish, fresh fried fish
Fresh fried fish, fresh fried fish

Your mouth will fail on you while you are speaking
You’re confused your speech is shrinking
There’s a slew of these to master
Tangled tongue, Tricky tongue twisters

Wristwatch, wristwatch, Which witch watched a wristwatch
Big black bug blood, Tim the thin twin tinsmith
You know no nose knows like a gnome’s nose knows
Frustrations come to you. Your mouth’s a wreck

It’s causing strife this sentence that you pursued
But how much wood would a woodchuck chuck?

Woodchuck chuck, Woodchuck chuck
Woodchuck chuck, Woodchuck chuck
Woodchuck chuck, Woodchuck chuck

Because your mouth’s in knots those words aren’t easy
Feeling screwed, your friends are teasing
“Blue glue gun” came out disfigured
Misconstrued tricky tongue twisters!

Great gray goats, great gray goats
Great gray goats, great gray goats
Great gray goats, great gray goats
Great gray goats, great gray goats

Try this! Try this! “Six sick hicks nick sticks”
“Sure sir the ship’s sure shipshape sir”
“Stu chews used shoes”, “Which witch’s wish is which?”
Pronunciation helps, pronunciate!
Don’t you agree? It’s entertaining? Don’t quit!
Teeth grit!

“Back black bat”, its language teaching
“She sees cheese” it leaves you screeching
“Bloke’s bike broke” that ends my list here
Tied your tongue, Tricky tongue twister!

Funny phonetic phenom fells fellas falling felicitously for floor on which to roll, languidly laughing off their asses.

I havent even listened to the song yet and I was laughing out loud on the train. I WILL listen and read, but hehe, this was worth the wait!

I've tried writing this type of parody and never finished. Excellent work.

(Artistry) Wow, I commend you for tackling a topic that by it's very nature would lead to a hell of a time when it comes to pacing. Not only that, but you pulled it off spectacularly. I am in awe, good sir. 555!

Good, though as a recording it would be a little weird
Max Power - June 24, 2013 - Report this comment
Not much to be said since my tongue got tied up and I have to type instead...oh wait.

Have to agree with Dave, would the recording be perfectly clean, or just you mumbling over yourself? Haha. Really clever idea that was really well done, great job!

(ABC) See above!

(ABC) Consider my tongue thoroughly twisted. This would be a hell of a task to record. I would give serious props to anyone that could do it.
