The Lyrics

Yes, I know it;'s another parody about popping balloons... but that's a funny subject! (Yes, I know I'm a weird dude.) Anyways, ever had a balloon-popping bum-rush at a birthday party or just at home? Here's a song about that! This'll probably be my last parody for a while, but I haven't gave up on my Tribute Series, just running out of ideas. BTW, the OS I used was the one from Gran Turismo 3, so there is absolutely NO German in this one.
You and I at the party store shop
Buy a ton of balloons with some money we got
Blow them up, size might make you cry
I told them all "YOU MUST DIE!*"

Armed with not much, just some sharp pins
Flash the message "Balloons, we'll win!"
Latex pieces 'bout knee-high
99 red balloons must die!!

99 dead balloons
Laying on my bedroom floor
Popping time, it's red alert
There's something here from party store!

It's inexpensive and quite fun
Balloon army, we have won!
Now Shiroi Bob** is 'bout to cry
Cause 99 red balloons have died!

27 red balloons
And there's 13 blue ones, too!
Don't worry, worry, super-scurry
Bring out the pins now in a hurry!

Here's the one you've waited for
I have declared bursting war!
Now Goldfinger are jamming, why?
Cause 99 dead balloons have died!

99 ways we can pop them,
Blow-pops, sit-pops, pins and more!
Now we're popping like Alissa***
Everyone's a TaraBush****

With orders to deflate, destroy
To pop these inflatable toys
Cleaning them up makes me cry
Cause 99 red balloons have died!

99 red balloons have died!

When the party's over now
You know we'll burst every balloon
It's all over and I'm standing right here
You know this song's really quite weird

If I could find a souvenir
Just to know we popped them all
Here it is, a dead balloon
I hang it up right on the wall...
*Try to say this like Ganon does in the CD-I Zelda game. ** A photographer on Flickr who oft uses balloons in his photography of J-pop singers. *** A famous female model who does videos on YouTube involving popping balloons and other inflatables. WARNING: Her site contains some explicit content. (Don't worry, I haven't watched any of the bad stuff.) **** Another famous balloon model. BTW, security code was "FF8". Abbreviation for Final Fantasy 8, LOL.

Very fun. I felt like you could have changed more from the original in some areas, but I enjoyed it. and I like Goldfinger's version of this song. I heard it for some video before I heard the Nena original.

Thanks, Glen S! I felt like I need to change mainly the 5th-6th lines. You may see a somewhat remastered version later.

Doesn't this remind me of the hidden package thing in Vice City Stories?
DJ Blaze - July 16, 2009 - Report this comment
It might, because the original 99 Luftbalons was in GTA Vice City. Thanks for the 555.
