The two-toed tree toad tried to win The three-toed she-toad's heart, For the two-toed tree toad loved the ground That the three-toed tree toad trod. But the two-toed tree toad tried in vain. He couldn't please her whim. From her tree toad bower With her three-toed power The she-toad vetoed him. </li></ul>Learn a few tongue twisters – to practice your lips, tongue and vocal chords. You need to practice aloud just like an athlete practices running by running – not by reading about it.
