I guess even Finnish has some Latin influence. (I'm assuming those are Latin-based words )

Yes, Finnish has borrowed a lot of words, but not as many as other languages, I believe. You will rarely stumble upon Indo-european words when you read Finnish, and it was quite a coincidence that three parts of Indo-european origin was found in the single word I posted. It's mostly technical words Finnish has borrowed, like filosofia, matematiikka, etc. So if you're reading technical or academical texts, you will most likely meet them.

I have left my dictionary at home today (my bible) - what does 'pancha' mean??
(plancha - iron). But it is a very good tongue twister !

Pancha is a girl's name, and should be capitalized.

La pancha also means belly, but that wasn't used in the tongue twister.

Pancha irons with four irons. ... With how many irons does Pancha iron?

My 2 cents...

Debajo de un carro
había un perro
vino otro perro
y le mordió el rabo.
Pobre perrito
como lloraba
por su rabito
que le faltaba.
