Making Tongue Twisters as Song Lyrics

Yesterday, we were asked by our teacher in enrichment class to create a rap song about the words we practiced in the speech laboratory. Me, knowing that I couldn’t rap, tried to just make a simple song using two-chords in a classical guitar, the A-D chord pattern.

And for the melody, I just made it up when I was taking a shower. So in less than a day, I have already made a new song using the tongue twisters as our lyrics.

Here’s the lyrics of the simple song we made.

Peter Piper and Betty Botta Song

Papap-parap-papap-papap-papap (4x)

Verse 1 (Peter Piper Verse):

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers

A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked

If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers

Where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked?

Bopbop-barap-bopbop-bopbop-bopbop  (2x)

Verse 2 (Betty Botta Verse):

Betty Botta bought a bit of bitter butter

A bit of bitter butter Betty Botta bought

If Betty Botta bought a bit of bitter butter

Where’s the bit of bitter butter Betty Botta bought?

Bopbop-barap-bopbop-bopbop-bopbop  (2x)

(Not really) Rap Part: Verse 1 and Verse 2

Repeat Verse 1 and Verse 2

Papap-parap-papap-papap-papap (4x)

Here we are performing in front of the class.
