Chubs – 99 Red Balloons 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, "Somethings out there"
Floating in the summer sky
99 red balloons go by
99 red balloons floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, it's a red alert
There's something here from somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
And opens up one eager eye
Focusing it in the sky
99 red balloons go by
99 Decision Street, where 99 ministers meet
To worry, worry, super-scurry
Call the troops out in a hurry
This is what we've waiting for
This is it boys, this is war
The president is on the line
99 red balloons go by
99 Knights of the air
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
99 red ballons go by
99 red balloons go by
99 dreams I have had
In everyone a red ballon
Now it's all over and I'm standin' 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
99 red balloons go by
