99 Red Balloons

Song Author Uwe Fahrenkrog-Petersen Lyrics by: Kevin McAlea Performer: Nena Submitted by: gilsi
[E]You and I in a [F#m]little toy shop
Buy a [A]bag of balloons with the [B]money we got
[E]Set them free at the [F#m]break of dawn
Till [A]one by one, they were [B]gone

[E]Back at base, [F#m]bugs in the software
[A]Flash the message: [B]Something's out there...
[E]Floating in the [F#m]summer sky
[A]99   [B]Red Balloons go by[E]..  [F#m].     [A]    [B]    

[E]99   [F#m]Red Balloons
[A]Floating in the [B]summer sky
[E]Panicking, it's [F#m]red alert
There's [A]something here from [B]somewhere else
[E]War machines [F#m]spring to life
[A]Opens up one [B]eager eye
[E]Focusing it [F#m]on the sky
Where [A]99   [B]Red Balloons go [E]by...

[E]99 Dec[F#m]ision street
[A]99 mini[B]sters meet
To [E]worry, worry;[F#m] super scurry
[A]Call the troops out [B]in a hurry
[E]This is what we've [F#m]waited for
[A]This is it, boys, [B]this is war
The [E]president is [F#m]on the line
As [A]99   [B]Red Balloons go b[E]y.  [F#m]..     [A]    [B]    

[E]99 knights [F#m]of the air
Ride [A]super high-tech [B]jet fighters
[E]Everyone's a [F#m]super hero
[A]Everyone's a [B]Captain Kirk
With [E]orders to i[F#m]dentify
To [A]clarify and c[B]lassify
[E]Scramble in the [F#m]summer sky
As [A]99   [B]Red Balloons go [E]by  [F#m]...    
As [A]99   [B]Red Balloons go [E]by  [F#m]...     [A]    [B]    

[E]99 dreams [F#m]I have had
In [A]each and every [B]red balloon
[E] It's all over and I'm[F#m] standing pretty
[A]In the dust that [B]was a city
If [E]i could find a [F#m]souveneir
[A]Just to prove the [B]world was here
[E]And here is a [F#m]red balloon
[A]I think of you [B]and let it go... [E]    

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: Something's out there...
Floating in the summer sky
99 Red Balloons go by...

99 Red Balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panicking, it's red alert
There's something here from somewhere else
War machines spring to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky
Where 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
Ride super high-tech jet fighters
Everyone's a super hero
Everyone's a Captain Kirk
With orders to identify
To clarify and classify
Scramble in the summer sky
As 99 Red Balloons go by...
As 99 Red Balloons go by...

99 dreams I have had
In each and every red balloon
It's all over and I'm standing pretty
In the dust that was a city
If i could find a souveneir
Just to prove the world was here
And here is a red balloon
I think of you and let it go...
