Lyrics

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?

Moving around like the Pop It crew is the way to the perfect dance for you!
Some primates live in trees and some live on the land and in trees. In this episode we meet KINDERZOO’s finest primates like our host Gabby the Gibbon, Deni the Douc Langur, Marty the Mandrill, Colin the Colobus Monkey and Mike the Proboscis Monkey. We also learn how Mike got his large nose in Kinderzoo Tales.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around – Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.

Information About Peter Piper

"Peter Piper" is famous as a mother goose nursery rhyme, although it was first published by John Harris in 1813 in a collection of tongue twisters that contained one for each letter of the alphabet. "Peter Piper" is the tongue twister for the letter P.

John Harris' book was intended to provide principles of perfect pronunciation. It i still used today by some speech therapists to improve quality and clarity in speech.

Previous to its publication, some authors identified the subject of the song as Peter Poivre, a French botanist who cultivated many kinds of peppers and spices found in India and whose surname, when translated into English, means "pepper".

As a tongue twister, it is a fun game to see who can say the rhyme ten times fast. Those that fumble a phrase have to start over!

Fun Fact: The "peck" of pickled peppers in the song is a defunct unit of measure that was once a common unit of agricultural measurement in the imperial system. A peck was approximately 2 gallons or 1/4 of a bushel.

"Peter Piper" is notorious for being on of the most difficult tongue twisters in the English language. Like tongue twisters? If you want more, click here for more of BusSongs' best tongue twisters.

Peter Piper picked a peck of peppers;
A peck of peppers Peter Piper picked.

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