99 red baloons

  1. 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 Knights of the airway
    Ride super-high-tech jet fighters
    Everyone's a Silverhero
    Everyone's a Captain Kirk
    With orders to identify
    To clarify and classify
    Scramble in the summer sky
    As 99 red balloons go by

    As 99 red balloons go by

    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
