New Funny Christmas Song:

Sally Sells Seashells by the Shiny Sea Shore

Here’s a new twist on an old tongue twister. this is a song version of the old Sally Sells Sea Shells by the Sea Shore tongue twister. I changed it a little and added to it to make it a song. If you can say it the speed of the the first round, that’s pretty impressive. Don’t even TRY the other two faster rounds!  😉   Here are the audio and the YouTube video the way I recorded it.

And here is a higher speed version. I can’t do the third verse on this video, it’s way too fast!

Sally sells seashells by the shiny sea shore
So she can see the shimmering silver ships
In sun-shiny summers she strolls along the sea shore
Shoelessly splashing summersaults while she skips

    P.S. is it you really singing?

  64. Bryant Says:
    December 12th, 2011 at 12:41 am

    For the tongue twisters that are higher-pitched, they were speeded up after I recorded them, so I didn’t record them at the speed you hear them. I still had to practice though.
