Yesterday I heard that song 99 Luftballoons by Nena. Remember that one? I dunno, what with a major California election coming up, and that "idiot that some village in Texas is missing" in office, and "the war", this song kinda stuck in my head..... It's a song about war, but also about hope and peace. Ok yeah, I didn't write it, but we are rebels right? We do what we want. Funny thing, the first verse of this song in English is 55 words plus the number 99....Have fun, I look forward to reading yours. Peace.
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, Something's out there.
Floating in the summer sky.
99 red balloons go by. .....
