99 Red Balloons
Nena渀 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
'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
Ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine 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 ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine decision street
Ninety-nine 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 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
In every one a red balloon
It's all over and I'm standing pretty
In this dust that was a city
If 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

I love this song. I remember when it first came out, the music was great, you could dance to it. It took awhile before people started to realize what they were singing about, and how scary it is. Remember this was made in 1983 (or '84?) before the Berlin wall came down in 1989. The war machine turning on and the world being destroyed was a real possibility, still is, but not as much.
I hear this song, and I'm a (skinny) carefree young lady all over again. Wanting to go bar hopping and dancing with my friends. Back when 6 of us fit into my Mustang. “Those were the days my friend... I wish they'd never ended...”.

First time I think of this song in 100 years and the video was uploaded 12 hours ago. Weird.

Jason & Co

Same here. I uploaded my own cover of this great song on the same day. Strangely coincidental.
