Why do I tab songs like this? Because I can... The 80s were ace!!!


E              F#m
You and I in a little toy shop
      A                        B
Buy a bag of balloons with the money we've got
E                    F#m
Set them free at the break of dawn
     A           B
'Til one by one, they were gone
E             F#m
Back at base, bugs in the software
A                  B
Flash the message "Something's out there"
E               F#m         A    B
Floating in the summer sky, 99 red balloons go by

[Instrumental Intrelude]:

E  F#m          A               B
99 red balloons floating in the summer sky
E                 F#m
Panic bells, it's red alert
        A                   B
There's something here from somewhere else
    E           F#m              A            B
The war machine springs to life; opens up one eager eye
E           F#m              A  B
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

[Instrumental Interlude]

99 Knights of the air ride super-high-tech jet fighters
Everyone's a Silverhero, everyone's a Captain Kirk
With orders to identify, to clarify and classify
Scramble in the summer sky as 99 red balloons go by
As 99 red balloons go by

99 dreams I have had, in every one a red balloon
It's all over and I'm standin' pretty, in this dust that was a city
If I could find a souvenier just to prove the world was here
And here is a red balloon I think of you and let it go

Lol hilarious! This was my favourite song when I was about eight years old. Such visual lyrics and really fun bass line.
