99 red balloons

You and I, and 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, "Some thing's out there"
Floating in the summer sky
Ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine red balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panic lads, it's a 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
Ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine Decision Street
Ninety-nine ministers meet
To worry, worry, super-scurry
Call the troops out in a hurry


This is what we've waiting for
This is it boys, this is war
The President is on the line
As ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine knights of the air
Riding super high-tech jet fighters
Everyone's a super hero
Everyone's a Captain Kirk

With orders to identify, to clarify and classify
Scrambling in the summer sky
As ninety-nine red balloons go by
Ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine red balloons go by
You and I pushed a button or two
Made a quark with power more than me or you
Set it free with a blackout dark
Scarier than Jurassic park

Touch some guys to energy share
Taking over, “There’s quarks out there”
Reverse the flow, make an antiquark
Creating a new universe for us

Quark combines with antiquark
The love they share creates a spark
Come on guys lets start anew
There’s something here for me and you

We’ve made the planets, made the stars
We’re working on the streets and cars
Time for us to say goodbye
Watch our brand new universe go by

[Recombine, realign
Intertwine and redefine
Building time and it’s running fine
Breaking up the paradigm]
on second thoughts not so sure about this stanza guys

Bows




Ninety nine quarks around
Towards a universe we’re bound



This is what we’ve waited for
Solved the problem, [without a meteor?]
Sunset in the afternoon
Watch as our new universe goes zoooooom
