    Default SouthWest Airlines

    Hello,

    Could you please help me with some words I am not sure about in a flight attendant's rapping safety announcement. I would like to assign this video to one of my groups of students to, first, transcribe and then translate into Russian with subtitles running on the screen.

    Good evening!
    Welcome aboard SouthWest Airlines Flight 373 service to Oklahoma City.
    Those of you who have flown us before, know we do things a little bit differently here at SouthWest.
    Some of us tell jokes, some of us sing, some of us just and look beautiful. I, unfortunately, can do none of those. So, here’s one thing I do know how to do.
    We’re gonna shake things up a little bit. I need a little audience participation. Otherwise this is not gonna go over well at all.
    So, here’s what I need. Specially guys in the front. You know what’s coming. Right, I need a beat.
    All right? All you need to do is stop and clap, and I’m gonna do the rest ‘cause I have just had five flights today and I just can’t do the regular boring announcement again, otherwise I’m gonna put myself to sleep.
    So, you guys with me? All right. So, it’s gonna be a ‘stop, clap.’
    Come on, stop, clap, stop, clap. They all beat there.
    There you go. Keep that coming.

    And the final words at the end of the video - Thank you very much for the beat. I appreciate that. You will not get that on United Airlines. I guarantee.

    Thank you in advance for the time and help.

    Hello,

    The parts I am not sure about are:

    1. 'Those of you who have flown' or 'haven't flown' or 'those of you that have flown'
    2. 'cause I have just had five flights today' or 'I just had five flights today'.
    3. 'All you need or All you'll need to do is stop and clap.'
    And at the very end -
    4. Thank you very much for my beat or the beat.

    Thank you for your help.
