Southern American English

Once there was a young rat named Arthur,

who could never make up his mind. 

Whenever his friends asked him if he would like to go out with them,

he would  only answer, "I don't know."

He wouldn't say "yes" or "no" either.

He would  always shirk making a choice.


Now I'll describe you where I live.

It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and I live there with my dog

I have a thick southern accent

I drawl out a lot of my words
