Spooner's Spoonerisms

fighting a liarlighting a fire
you hissed my mystery lectureyou missed my history lecture
cattle ships and bruisersbattle ships and cruisers
nosey little cookcosy little nook
a blushing crowa crushing blow
tons of soilsons of toil
our queer old Deanour dear old Queen
we'll have the hags flung outwe'll have the flags hung out
you've tasted two wormsyou've wasted two terms
our shoving leopardour loving shepherd
a half-warmed fisha half-formed wish
is the bean dizzy?is the Dean busy?
