One Two Ten



Outstrip, nip and tuck it
Detick, kick the bucket

Cockeye, fly and spider
Harangue, hang the rider

Recline, fine and dandy
Compete, eat the candy

Secure, lure and glamor
Revere, hear the clamor

Renege, egg and gravy
Purloin, join the navy

Detent, taunt and rebut
Fordone, run the gamut

Delay, stay and tarry
Forsake, make the ferry

Amiss, kiss and love it
Default, halt the covet

Bestow, glow and glitter
Enhance, dance the jitter

Combat, fat and blubber
Return, burn the rubber
