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.
Please no more phone calls this week. My tongue is broken. Кстати, эта скорокоговорка дает почувствовать разницу между гласными звуками, например, в словах batter и better.
