Nena – 99 Red Balloons chords
Capo on 2nd fret I performed this song at my school's pop show and the second and last verse, I translated to spanish. At the bottom of this tab, I've done so just in case you want to make it interesting.. (Strum these chords once at a time:) (no intro) 1st Verse:D EmYou and I in a little toy shopG ABuy a bag of balloons with the money we gotD EmSet them free at the break of dawnG ATill one by one, they were goneD EmBack at base, bugs in the softwareG AFlash the message: Something's out there...D EmFloating in the summer skyG A D Em G A 99 Red Balloons go by...2nd Verse:D Em99 Red BalloonsG AFloating in the summer skyD EmPanicking, it's red alertG AThere's something here from somewhere elseD EmWar machines spring to lifeG AOpens up one eager eyeD EmFocusing it on the skyG A D (hold)Where 99 Red Balloons go by...(pick back up with 3rd Verse:)D Em99 Decision streetG A99 ministers meetD EmTo worry, worry; super scurryG ACall the troops out in a hurryD EmThis is what we've waited forG AThis is it, boys, this is warD EmThe president is on the lineG A D Em G AAs 99 Red Balloons go by...4th Verse:D Em99 knights of the airG ARide super high-tech jet fightersD EmEveryone's a super heroG AEveryone's a Captain KirkD EmWith orders to identifyG ATo clarify and classifyD EmScramble in the summer skyG A D EmAs 99 Red Balloons go by...G A D Em G AAs 99 Red Balloons go by...(Strum these last chords once at a time:) 5th Verse (last verse:)D Em99 dreams I have hadG AIn each and every red balloonD Em It's all over and I'm standing prettyG AIn the dust that was a cityD EmIf i could find a souveneirG AJust to prove the world was hereD EmAnd here is a red balloonG A (pluck D string once) I think of you and let it go...(Now for the 2nd and last verse spanglish translation:) 2nd Verse: 99 Globos De Air Flotando en cielo verano Panico, rojo alerta Algo aqui de algun donde else Guerra maquina vine vida Abre un ojo ansioso Centrado en el cielo Donde 99 Globos pasan 5th, Last Verse: 99 suenos yo habia En cada globo de aire It's all over and I'm standing pretty En el polvo que era una ciudad If I could find a souveneir Al probar el mundo fue aqui And here is a red balloon I think of you, and let it go... The reason why the spanish says "99 globos de AIR" is because in german, "luftbalons" means "air ballons" but in english, i kept it as "Red" because that's how the song is known. In spansih, not to many people would notice this change. It's kind of just for my own good. I hope you enjoyed and/or found this helpful (:
