99 Red Balloons

In the style of

Nena

Lyrics

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
till one by one
they were gone

back at base
boxin' the software
flash the message
somethin's out there
floatin' in
the summer sky
ninety-nine
red balloons go by

ninety-nine
red balloons
floatin' in
the summer sky

panic's there
it's red alert
there's somethin'
here from
somewhere else

the war machine
springs to life
opens up
one eager eye
focusing in
on the sky
and ninety-nine
red balloons go by

ninety-nine
decisions treaty
ninety-nine
ministers meet

to worry worry
super scary
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 ninety-nine
red balloons go by

ninety-nine
knights of the air
ride super high tech
jet fighters

everyone's
a super hero
everyone's
a captain kirk

with orders to
identify
to clarify and
classify
scramble in
the summer sky
ninety-nine
red balloons go by

as ninety-nine
red balloons go by

ninety-nine
dreams i have had
and everyone
a red balloon

it's all over and
i'm standin' pretty
in this dust
that was a city

i could find
a souvenir
just to prove
the world was here
and here is
a red balloon
i think of you
and let it go
