Suppose an Eyes
Suppose it is within a gate which open is open at the hour of closing summer that is to say it is so.
All the seats are needing blackening. A white dress is in sign. A soldier a real soldier has a worn lace a worn lace of different sizes that is to say if he can read, if he can read he is a size to show shutting up twenty-four.
Go red go red, laugh white.
Suppose a collapse in rubbed purr, in rubbed purr get.
Little sales ladies little sales ladies little saddles of mutton.
Little sales of leather and such beautiful beautiful, beautiful beautiful.

Nimm ein Eis an
Nimm an es sei innerhalb eines tores das offen ist offen zur sperrstunde sommer heisst zu sagen es sei so.
Alle sitze benötigen schwärzen. Ein weisses kleid ist in sinn. Ein soldat ein richtiger soldat hat schäbige tressen, schäbig in tressen verschiedener grössen würde bedeuten könnte er lesen, könnte er
lesen hätt er die grösse vier und zwanzig demonstrativ den mund
zu stopfen.
Werd rot werd rot, lach weiss.
Nimm ein kollaps an ein geriebne schnurr, eine geriebne schnurr kriegen.
Kleine ladenmädchen ladenmädchen lämmerwädchen.
Lederlädchen und so delikat delikat, delikat delikat.
