99 Red Balloons (Nena 1984)



You and I in a little toy shop

buy a bag of balloons with the money we've got

Set them free at the break of dawn

'Til one by one, they were gone

Back at base, bugs in the software

Flash the message, "Something's out there"

Floating in the summer sky

99 red balloons go by.



99 red balloons floating in the summer sky

Panic bells, it's red alert

There's something here from somewhere else

The war machine springs to life

Opens up one eager eye

Focusing it on the sky

As 99 red balloons go by.



99 Decision Street, 99 ministers meet

To worry, worry, super-scurry

Call out the troops now in a hurry

This is what we've waited for

This is it boys, this is war

The president is on the line

As 99 red balloons go by.



99 Kriegsminister

Streichholz und Benzinkanister

Hielten sich fuer schlaue Leute

Witterten schon fette Beute

Riefen: Krieg und wollten Macht

Mann, wer haette das gedacht

Dass es einmal soweit kommt

Wegen 99 luftballons



99 dreams I have had

In every one a red balloon

It's all over and I'm standin' pretty

In the dust that was a city

If I could find a souvenier

Just to prove the world was here...

And here it is, a red balloon

I think of you and let it go.
