The 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
'till one by one they were gone
Back at base, invisible bugs in the software
Flash the message "something's out there"
Floating in the April sky
Ninety nine pink balloons go by

Ninety nine pink balloons
Floating in the April sky
Panic bells, it's red alert
There's something here from a distant planet
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
And focusing it on the clouds
The ninety nine pink balloons go by

Ninety nine decision street
Ninety Prime 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 Tony Blair is on the line
As Ninety nine pink balloons go by

Ninety nine knights of the air
Ride super-cool hot air ballons
Everyone's a super hero
Everyone's Captain Pugwash
With orders to identify
To clarify and classify
Scramble in the April sky
Ninety nine pink balloons go by

As ninety nine pink balloons go by

Ninety nine dreams I have had
In every one a U-F-O
It's all over and I'm standing pretty
In this dust that was a city
If i could find some Southend Rock
Just to prove the Earth was here
And here is a pink balloon
I think of you and let it fly all the way to the Moon and back!
