Word Twister Words and Music by Bill Pere

The hot coals from the barbecue had warmed my baked potato
The radio said "watch out for a very strange tornado"
It said this twirling twister could make your tongue twist words
I lay there on my comfy cot and said "That's just absurd!"
The twister hit the barbecue, I jumped up when the coals burned through
there were were three hot coals...and three cot holes.
Have you heard mister, 'bout the word twister?
Wished it got my sister, but the twister missed her...

The morning looked quite sunny, the boy said "Picnic time!"
He grabbed a bowl of Jello, his favorite flavor...lime
He sat there in the shade with his pink and purple mug,
When up into the Jello crawled a slippery slimy slug
The twister hit, he dropped the bowl, he slipped and glugged the slug down whole
There was a limey slip...and a slimy lip. ---

A father and his daughter were out taking a walk
All that little girl would do was talk and talk and talk
Her father tried to tell her that a storm was on the way
She just said "Be quiet, Dad, I've got more things to say!"
The twister hit, the trees all shook, she landed in a in a muddy brook
There in the dirty water...was the wordy daughter ---

The tailor tried to sew a suit, the storm swirled round his eyes
He didn't care or give a hoot which wasn't very wise
He was looking for a spool of thread, one that just would fit
He just had found the one he needed when the twister hit
The twister spun around his house and spun the spool into his mouth
There was the fitting spool...and a spitting fool ---

Little Mister Cobblepot got his oven very hot
He was going to bake a blackbird pie, but the blackbird said "You're not!"
The bird flew round the kitchen, Mr. Cobblepot was itchin'
To get that squawking bird in hand, but he was an awkward little man
The twister dumped him in the hot pie crust; turned the blackbird's feathers into dust
There was a naked bird...and a baked nerd --
Have you heard mister, 'bout the word twister?
Wished it got my sister, but the twister missed her...
