A flea and a fly flew up in a flue.
"Let us fly!" said the flea to the fly.
"Let us flee!" said the fly to the flea.
So the flea and the fly flew through a flaw in the flue.
Betty Botter bought some butter,
But the butter was bitter;
If Betty Botter put some butter in her batter,
It would make her batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter
Would make her batter better.
So she bought a bit of better butter
And put it in her batter,
And the batter was not bitter.
Say this sharply, say this sweetly,
Say this shortly, say this softly.
Say this sixteen times in succession.
