99 Red Balloons – Goldfinger

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
Ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine red balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, it’s red alert
There’s something here from somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky
As ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine decisions treat
Ninety-nine ministers meet
To worry, worry, super scurry
Call out the troops now in a hurry
This is what we’ve waited for
This is it, boys, this is war
The President is on the line
As ninety-nine red balloons go by

Neunundneunzig Kriegsminister
Streichholz und Benzinkanister
Hielten sich f?r schlaue Leute
Witterten schon fette Beute
Riefen: Krieg und wollten Macht
Mann, wer h?tte das gedacht?
Da? es einmal so weit kommt
Wegen neunundneunzig Luftballons
Neunundneunzig Luftballons

Ninety-nine dreams I have had
And every one a red balloon
It’s all over, and I’m standing pretty
In the dust that was a city
I could find a souvenir
Just to prove the world was here
Here it is, a red balloon
I think of you and let it go

99 Ways To Die – Megadeth

If I see the morning hours
I’ll have one more yesterday
Take life from tomorrow
Cause I’ve burned out my today

If I get up to the top I know
I’ll just go back downhill
Gotta’ terminal future
And it’s time to write my will

Down another glass of courage
And a shot of thorazine

We’re not ready to see you yet
99 ways to die
We’re not ready to see you yet

Gotta’ short between the earphones
Wringing my hands in dismay
A more efficient maniac
With two feet in the grave

Ain’t got no last words to say
Yellow streak right up my spine
The gun in my mouth was real
And the taste blew my mind

In a black tie and straight jacket
Man I’m gonna try again

Chorus repeat

Demitasse of arsenic
Try on this tie
Never mind the tree

There is only death and danger
In the sockets of my eyes
A playground of illusion
No one plays they only die

There’s a prison in my mind
And the bars are gonna break
I’m as mad as a hatter
And strung out just the same

Taunting rigor mortis
I feel it draw me in

99. Back Home – Chumbawamba

“Back home, they’ll be thinking about us
When we are far away…
Back home, they’ll be really behind us
In every game we play…”

99% – Soul Asylum

I don’t own you but I know you’re mine
Never disown you, never treat you unkind

But once in a while, you get on my nerves
Once in a while, you get what you deserve
I need you ninety-nine percent of the time
Ninety-nine percent of the time (x3)

If I asked you what’s on your mind
Would you say me, would they be thoughts unkind

But once in a while, I’m not myself
Once in a while, I think you’re someone else
I want you ninety-nine percent of the time
Ninety-nine percent of the time (x3)

Let’s move in together
Happily ever after

I can’t touch you but you feel so f*cking fine
Let’s just stay like this and waste some more time

Once in a while, you get in my way
Once in a while, you know I’ve got to say
I love you ninety-nine percent of the time
Ninety-nine percent of the time (x3)

9th & Hennepin – Tom Waits

Well it’s 9th and Hennepin
And all the donuts have
Names that sound like prostitutes
And the moon’s teeth marks are
On the sky like a tarp thrown over all this
And the broken umbrellas like
Dead birds and the steam
Comes out of the grill like
The whole goddamned town is ready to blow.
And the bricks are all scarred with jailhouse tattoos
And everyone is behaving like dogs.
And the horses are coming down Violin Road
And Dutch is dead on his feet
And the rooms all smell like diesel
And you take on the
Dreams of the ones who have slept here.
And I’m lost in the window
I hide on the stairway
I hang in the curtain
I sleep in your hat
And no one brings anything
Small into a bar around here.
They all started out with bad directions
And the girls behind the counter has a tattooed tear,
One for every year he’s away she said, such
A crumbling beauty, but there’s
Nothing wrong with her that
$100 won’t fix, she has that razor sadness
That only gets worse
With the clang and the thunder of the
Southern Pacific going by
As the clock ticks out like a dripping faucet
Till you’re full of rag water and bitters and blue ruin
And you spill out
Over the side to anyone who’ll listen
And I’ve seen it
All through the yellow windows
Of the evening train.

99 lbs – Black Crowes

Twenty-five pounds of pure cane sugar
She’s got in each and every kiss
You wouldn’t know what I’m talking ’bout
If you never had a love like this
Well, I don’t mean to be frank with you all
It’s a natural fact
Good things come wrapped up in small, small packages now
Well you can’t argue with that
Oh, oh, yeah
Ninety-nine pounds of natural born goodness
Ninety-nine pounds of soul, oh, oh
Ninety-nine pounds of natural born goodness
Ninety-nine pounds of soul
Twenty-five pounds of tenderness
She got in each and every touch
Twenty-five pounds of understanding my woman
‘Cause I was the one running ’round town worrying too much
Twenty-four pounds of Sunday
That I can’t see, yeah
And it all adds up to ninety-nine big pounds
Oh, I’m talking about a feline friend
Ninety-nine pounds of natural born goodness
Ninety-nine pounds of soul
Ninety-nine pounds of natural born goodness
Ninety-nine pounds of soul
Ninety-nine pounds of natural born goodness
Ninety-nine pounds of soul
Ninety-nine pounds of natural born goodness
Ninety-nine pounds of soul
Ninety-nine pounds of natural born goodness
Ninety-nine pounds of soul
Ninety-nine pounds of natural born goodness
Ninety-nine pounds of soul

99 Luftballons (English Translation) – Nena

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

99 red balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panic bells it’s red alert
There’s something here from somewhere else
The war machine springs 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
99 red balloons go by

99 dreams I have had
In every one a red balloon
It’s all over and I’m standing pretty
In this dust that was a city
If I could find a souvenir
Just to prove the world was here
And here is a red balloon
Just to prove the world was here
And here is a red balloon
I think of you, and let it go

99 Luftballons (German) – Nena

Hast du etwas Zeit fuer mich
Dann singe ich ein Lied fuer dich
Von 99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Denkst du vielleicht g’rad an mich
Dann singe ich ein Lied fuer dich
Von 99 Luftballons
Und dass sowas von sowas kommt

99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Hielt man fuer Ufos aus dem All
Darum schickte ein General
‘ne Fliegerstaffel hinterher
Alarm zu geben, wenn’s (sie?) war
Dabei war’n da am Horizont
Nur 99 Luftballons

99 Duesenjager
Jeder war ein grosser Krieger
Hielten sich fuer Captain Kirk
Das gab ein grosses Feuerwerk
Die Nachbarn haben nichts gerafft
Und fuehlten sich gleich angemacht
Dabei schoss man am Horizont
Auf 99 Luftballons

99 Kriegsminister
Streichholz und Benzinkanister
Hielten sich fuer schlaue Leute
Witterten schon fette Beute
Riefen: Kring und wollten Macht
Mann, wer hatte das gedacht
Dass es einmal soweit kommt
Wegen 99 Luftballons

99 Jahre Krieg
Liessen keine Platz fuer Sieger
Kriegsminister gibt’s nicht mehr
Und auch keine Duesenflieger
Heute zieh ich meine Runden
Seh’ die Welt in Truemmern liegen
Hab’ ‘nen Luftballon gefunden
Denk’ an dich und lass’ ihn fliegen

99 Miles From L.A. – Julio Iglesias

Keeping my eyes on the road, I see you. Keeping my hands on the wheel, I hold
you
99 miles from L.A. I kiss you, I miss you, please be there
Passing a white sandy beach, we’re sailing Turning the radio on, we’re dancing
99 miles from L.A. I want you, I need you, please be there
The windshield is covered with rain, I’m crying Pressing my foot on the gas,
I’m flying Counting the telephone poles, I phone you Reading the signs on the
road, I write you
99 miles from L.A. We’re laughing, we’re loving, please be there We’re
laughing, we’re loving, please be there
