It’s “Tschüss!” ;)
A real pity that you are not visiting Leipzig on your tour :(
Have fun tonight!
;-) I was waiting for some pedant to correct him. BB doesn’t disappoint. In that vein, let’s get everything else that could be criticized out of the way:
“Tschüss” means “goodbye” only and is not appropriate here. Also, “2000h” looks weird to just about about anybody, even Germans. “20:00″ would be more natural.
Passt schon ^^
What we have here, ladies and gentlemen, is a textbook example of German pedantry.
And by god, I would have done the same had I been the first to comment.
Obscure sidenote: I saw the title of this article, then went to confirm it as a song lyric. To my surprise, the song I know it from – “First We Take Manhattan” by Sirenia – is actually a cover of a Joe Cocker cover of the original song from Jennifer Warnes (and written by Leonard Cohen).
First you’re going to take Manhattan, right?
