  • Parody of "99 Luftballoons" by Nena. (peterpuck9)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Have a lot of you heard the... the new song by Nena, "99 Red Balloons"? Well, I heard the German version of that song first and I really liked it, but then I heard the English version and I was really surprised to find that what she's singing in English and what she's singing in German are not even close. Uh, I ended up buying the record and I listened very closely to the German version, and I've come up with a new English translation that I think is really much more accurate and much closer. I have to admit there are a couple of lines in this new English version that I'm not real sure about, but I think it's a much more accurate version. Now this is the new version, "99 Red Balloons".


    Hello Bobby, my old friend.
    It's good to see you once again.
    How's your mother, how's your aunt?
    How's your father's skin diving suit? (one of the lines I'm not real sure about, but it goes something like this.)

    I've got something you should see
    Back at my place; come with me.
    I've got some brand new furnishings,
    Plus 99 dead baboons!

    99 dead baboons
    Sitting in my living room.
    Not too functional, it seems,
    But quite a conversation piece.
    This one's Jake, that one's Dinah,
    There's big Ned in my recliner.
    No, it's not a La-Z-Boy.
    Can't you see it's a dead baboon?

    Dead baboons, dead baboons.
    Dead baboons, dead baboons.

    How they got here, I'm not sure;
    Woke up one day, there they were.
    Luckily I've got a lease
    Allowing pets if they're deceased.
    I'm just thankful they're not apes,
    'Cuz apes would clash with the drapes.
    No more napkins at my parties -
    Wipe your hands on a dead baboon!

    Dead baboons, dead baboons.
    Dead baboons, dead baboons.

    Dead baboons are lots of fun;
    Playin' water balloons I've always won.
    You can keep your dead giraffes and swine,
    I'll take dead baboons every time.
    There's just one problem I have found:
    It's finding Purina Dead Baboon Chow.
    But what a happy snorkeling device... (another line I'm not real sure about, but it's somethin' like that.)
    With 99 dead baboons!

    Dead baboons, dead baboons.
    Dead baboons, dead baboons.

    I saw him in concert a few years ago and talked to him after the show. Great guy. He's a friend of the Bob and Tom show.
