Team LV,

Here is my second run at a recording, This was certainly a fun one to read but it seems that my time is considerably faster than most. It seemed to be a fast paced poem, but I may have got carried away. Happy for any feedback.

Cheers

Welcome to LibriVox Jayden, I apologize for overlooking your post last weekend. :oops:
Good first reading, however, there are a couple of misreads you may wish to fix -
at 1:38 is read "Curse you, you have two left legs?'" text reads "Curse you, have you two left legs?'
at 1:47 is read 'Sherry!' 'No, I called for beer -- all of the fools I ever saw!': text reads "'Sherry!' 'No, I called for beer -- of all the fools I ever saw!'"

Here's mine! This was a fun one! Reminded me a little of Be Our Guest from Beauty and the Beast! :D

Thank you, David. I sure got this one in under the wire. It was such a fun poem that I could not resist trying. Thank you!
