about

A tongue twister

lyrics

Are you able to play tennis on a turning tennis table?
Will your mother mollycoddle Mrs Morse’s daughter Mabel?
Can you lick a lolly scramble like a lizard at a lake?
Can you carry half a carton full of crunchy carrot cake?

Did your sister get a blister from assisting Mr Morse?
Or was it helping Harry hit a home run? Yes of course
Can you stick a naked bunny in a cranny or a nook?
Can you bring a bacon buttie and a bottle and a book?

It’s on the tip of my tongue

How do horses hear a hoodlum when they’re hurtling hell for leather?
Why do weasels whistle wetly in the wild and windy weather?
Did your father find a feather for the funky fashion show?
Or did he force young Norman Morse to tell him where to go?

Can you count the clucking chickens as they cackle in the clover
After Mrs Morse’s Morris Minor nearly ran them over?
Did you drink a drip of danger juice and drain the bottom drop?
Can you eat the ears of elephants and never want to stop?

It’s on the tip of my tongue

Can someone tell the Morses that their dog is here for dinner
That their cat has lost its confidence, their guinea pig is thinner?
The Morses are our neighbours Mr, Mrs, Norman, Mabel
And all of them play tennis on a turning tennis table

It’s on the tip of my tongue
