Lyrics

You and I in a little toy shop

Buy a bag of balloons with the money we 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, 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 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 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 99 red balloons go by


99 knights of the air

Super high-tech jet fighters

Everyone's a superhero

Everyone's a Captain Kirk

With orders to identify

To clarify and classify

Scramble in the summer sky

As 99 red balloons go by


99 dreams that I have had

In 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

And here it is, a red balloon

I think of you and let it go
