Has anyone heard the "Betty Botter bought a bit of butter" poem? to help with rolling the r's?

Betty Botter bought a bit of butter,

"But," she said, "the butter's bitter,

If I put it in my batter,

It will 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 put it in her batter,

And the batter was not bitter,

So 'twas better Betty Botter

Bought a bit of better butter.

Practice by placing your tongue on the top of your mouth and blow air out while keeping your tongue in place....

Your tongue should make a vibrating noise...and while doing that, try to say r

This should work, but rolling r's is something you get shown, its hard to type out what to do!
