Okay, I'd like to point out that the following will not be in pinyin, Wade-Giles, or any recognizable phonetic notation system. Think of it as the hooked-on-phonics version of what to say:
Shen sun, wuo yo jee tiao guh. Tzuh jee tiao guh si wuo tuh bieh she hwan duh guh - yieh si wuo tuh bieh dong duh ing yueh. Ching wun, nee nun bu nun bah wuo duh ing yreh fang tzai nee mien, zhang wuo ting ee ting?
Roughly translated, it's "Mister, I have a few songs. These songs are ones that I particularly like - as well as music that I know quite well. Could I intrude upon you to put this music in there [point to the damn thing], and let me have a listen?
Thanks for the effort, but I might have been exagerating a bit, my level is largely sufficient to ask them that :) It is really cute how you translate pinyin in phonetics though :)
Anyways I will try even better: I will ask them to loan it against a deposit over the weekend...
