99 Red Balloons
Goldfinger Lyrics


You and I in a little toy shop
Buy a bag of balloons with the money weÂ've got
Set them free at the break of dawn
Till one by one they were gone
Back at base, sparks in the software
Flash the message â??somethings out thereâ??
Floating in the summer sky
Ninety nine red balloons go by

Ninety nine red balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, its red alert
ThereÂ's something here from somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
And focusing it on the sky
The ninety nine red balloons go by

Ninety nine decisions treat
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
Scrambling 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 could find a souvenir
Just the prove the world was here
And here is a red balloon
I think of you and let it go

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

[Verse 1]
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
As ninety-nine red balloons go by

[Verse 2]
Ninety-nine decisions treat
Ninety-nine 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 ninety-nine red balloons go by

[Bridge]
Neunundneunzig Kriegsminister
Streichholz und Benzinkanister
Hielten sich füare schlaue Leute
Witterten schon fette Beute
Riefen: Krieg und wollten Macht
Mann, wer hätte das gedacht?
Daß es einmal so weit kommt
Wegen neunundneunzig Luftballons
Neunundneunzig Luftballons

[Outro]
Ninety-nine dreams I have had
And every one a red balloon
It's all over, and I'm standing pretty
In the dust that was a city
If I could find a souvenir
Just to prove the world was here
Here it is, a red balloon
I think of you and let it go



Jack Macauley

German part translated:
Ninety-nine ministers of war
Matchstick and jerrycans
They thought they were smart people
smelled a big hunt
Shouts: War and wanted power
Man, who would have thought?
That it will come to this one day
Because of ninety-nine balloons
Ninety nine balloons



TRUST THE PROCESS

Floating in the summer sky
Ninety-nine red balloons go by

[Verse 1]

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

Every time I would listen to this cover within earshot of my mom, she would always tell me that the ending of this version doesn't give her goosebumps like the original. She passed last month but I'm glad to know that this will be some silly little something I think about every time I hear this song.

I'm sorry for your loss. My mom turned me on to reggae, ska, and punk. I was 12.

That's really sweet of you.

@Maxwell Anderson Especially, scary because during this time the world was literally going to nuke itself. Cold War era is no joke. I cant imagine how scary that must have been. Idk which would be worse to relive the pandemic or re live the cold war era.
