Nena – 99 Balloons lyrics

If you have some time for me, then I will sing a song for you about 99 balloons on their way to the horizon. Perhaps you think of me now, then I will song a song for you of 99 balloons and that such comes from such.

99 balloons
On their way to the horizon.
All mistake them for UFOs
Because of that a General
Sends a flight squadron after them
To give an alarm if it is so.but there on the horizon were only 99 balloons.

99 Jetfighters,
Each was a great warrior,
Regarded themselves as Captain Kirk
They gave a great fireworks!
The neighbors did not realize
And felt offended.
There they shot upon the horizon
At 99 balloons

99 Ministers of war
Matches and Gas canisters
Were waiting for clever people
Who smelled the fat spoils
Called: War! and wanted power.
Man, who had thought
That it would have come to that
Because of 99 balloons.

99 year war
Did not leave a place for winners.
Minister of war gives no more
And also no more Jet planes.
Today I make my rounds,
I see the world in rubbel.
I have found a balloon...
I think of you, and let it fly.
