War of the WORDS

1-Betty Botter had some butter,
"But," she said, "this butter’s bitter.
If I bake this bitter butter,
it would make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter,
that would make my batter better."
So she bought a bit of butter,
better than her bitter butter,
and she baked it in her batter,
and the batter was not bitter.
So ’twas better Betty Botter
bought a bit of better butter.

2-You’ve no need to light a night-light
on a light night like tonight,
for a night-light’s light’s a slight light,
and tonight’s a night that’s light.
When a night’s light, like tonight’s light,
it is really not quite right
to light night-lights with their slight lights
on a light night like tonight.

3-Mr. See owned a saw.
And Mr. Soar owned a seesaw.
Now See’s saw sawed Soar’s seesaw
before Soar saw See,
which made Soar sore.
Had Soar seen See’s saw
before See sawed Soar’s seesaw,
See’s saw would not have sawed
Soar’s seesaw.
So See’s saw sawed Soar’s seesaw.
But it was sad to see Soar so sore
just because See’s saw sawed Soar’s seesaw !
