    I Don't do requests.

    dear teacher:

    A boy is singing while taking his bath and his sister came.

    Sis," Steven, your family has requested you to stop singing."

    Boy," Nope, sorry ... I don't do request."


    What does that boy mean? Does he say sorry for singing badly or it has other meaning? and what is that?

    Thanks for your time

    It's a joke.
    When a singer or a band has a set repertoire that they perform, they "don't take/do requests". This means they don't sing songs that the audience asks them to. They only sing songs that they have prepared for.

    Steven is saying that he has such a list of songs to sing, and that he cannot "take requests" to stop singing.
