Why, I believe it'd even be atatakakunakereba naranai (it must be warm).

Try:

hoo-oo (Pope)
kasa sasanakatta (I did not put up an umbrella)

What about Swedish: sju sk?na sjuksk?terskor sk?tte sju sjuka sj?m?n (one hears eight times a peculiar Swedish sound, something between English "sh" and "h"; this sound can be written, depending on the word, as sj, sk, skj, stj, sch or ch)! Compare French: le chasseur sachant chasser sans chier sa chasse (here we have a constant interchange betweeh "sh" and "s")!

One from German, at last:

Ihm ist eine Laus ?ber die Leber gelaufen.

means that he is in a bad mood. It translates to "A louse has scrambled about on his liver"

One of my favourites is, of course, from Irish: aghaidh [aj] (at least according to a certain site), "face".
And here's a cute Dutch one: kerker /kErk@r/ "dungeon".

I'm sorry for that I am replying for post which was written about a year ago...

In Polish oddity is a word "źdźbło" meaning stalk (of corn etc.)

It is made of one syllable which model is CCCCV. :) Great. :P

Pronounce it /z\d_z\bwO/.

Here's a weird phrase from Catalan: Cap cap cap "No head fits".

Also No em cap al cap que cap cap cap en cap cap "It doesn't fit into my head that any head doesn't fit in any head"
