    Accent check - and what he says

    Dear teachers

    I've attached a voice clip of my friend during a performance. He asks if I can understand what he says in the peformance, but I really don't have a clue. Could you please help? And, any idea what accent he is mimicking?

    Regards

    Anthony

    Sorry, I can't get the file to open.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    He says, 'You're looking for another rent boy there on the corner of Smith Street.'

    It's meant to be a working-class London accent.
