BLONDIE - 99 Red Balloons lyrics

rate me

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

Where 99 red balloons go by.

99 Decision Street, 99 ministers meet

To worry, worry, super-scurry

Call the troops out 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 (Neunundneunzig) Kriegsminister

Streichholz und Benzinkanister

hielten sich für schlaue Leute

witterten schon fette Beute

riefen: "Krieg", und wollten Macht

Mann, wer hätte 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 this dust that was a city

If I could find a souvenier

Just to prove the world was here...

And here is a red balloon

I think of you and let it go.
