All I want is a proper cup of coffee,
Made in a proper copper coffee pot.
Around the rugged rocks the ragged rascals ran.
The keen king kissed the quick queen on her green ring.

who gather worthier brethren than these.
And what is considered by many to be the most difficult tongue twister in English:
The sixth sick Sheik’s sixth sheep’s sick.
Of course, tongue twisters do not only exist in English – most languages have them. The video below shows some examples from around the world.
