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, 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 it springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky as 99 red balloons go by

99 Decision Street, 99 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 99 red balloons go by

99 Kriegsminister
Streichholz und Benzinkanister
Hielten sich fuer schlaue Leute
Witterten schon fette Beute

Riefen, Krieg und wollten Macht
Mann, wer haette das gedacht
Dass es einmal soweit kommt
Wegen 99 Luftballoons

99 dreams I have had
In every one a red balloon
It's all over and I'm standin' pretty
In the dust that was a city

If I could find a souvenir
Just to prove the world was here
And here it is, a red balloon
I think of you and let it go
