English Audio Request

Note to recorder:

Please read at a natural speed with the appropriate emotion and intonation.

This game is really only good for 3 minutes and 14 seconds, but is probably the easiest drinking game out there!
All you need to play is a sound system of some sort, and the song ‘Roxanne’ by The Police. Next, you split everybody up into 2 teams (usually boys on one team, girls on the other). The girls drink when they hear the word ‘Roxanne’, and the boys drink when they hear ‘put on a red light’. Doesn’t sound like much of a drinking game, right? Wrong! It’s unbelievable how many times The Police repeat these lyrics in the song and so this game can be a good laugh if played occasionally.

Thank you!
It would be great to have a British English version as well.

You probably haven't heard a Northern Irish accent before (it's very different to other Irish accents by the way). After all there are only 1.8 million people with one in the world. It's an interesting accent as I personally think it is the closest accent in the British Isles to the General American accent. We pronounce our 'R's in the same way i.e. always pronounced but not rolled like in Scotland. When I read your text the first time (the audio file below the other) I tried to read as clearly as possible which is difficult for a Northern Irish person :D The second time (the higher up audio file above), I read it how I normally would, in case you were interested- it probably sounds more natural (but harder to understand)!
