    That's a bit too cryptic for me
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    99 Red Balloons lyrics
    Songwriters: Mcalea, Kevin (Eng Lyr); Karges, Carlo; Fahrenkrog-Petersen, Joer; Singer Nena
    “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 dreams I have had
    Every one a red balloon
    Now it's all over and I'm standin' 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
    I think of you and let it go.”

    Vanesh, do you smoke a little electric spinach before you post these musical threads?

    Cause I am tempted to before I read some of these old lyrics

    This one I do know something about. Unfortunatley the message didn't translate too well from the original German to English.

    Here's a red balloon for you:

    I always loved the energy in the song - even if the underlying theme was rather sobering.

    Well my learned colleague it's a simple matter of preference really, "I prefer herb for my wine and honey for my strong drink!"

    99 Red Balloons - I've heard the song about 1 million times and this is the first time ever that I even thought about the lyrics....Wow, I am absolutely astounded....

    Here is another interesting one:

    Why did the chicken cross the road?

    Ok, you'll say "To get to the other side"

    We all assume that it is the other side of the road. But what if the chicken crossed a busy road on purpose to get killed and cross to the "other side of life"..... Its the same thing, we think we know the answer because we've heard the answer 1 million times, except it may not be the right, nor the only answer....
    How easily someone is offended is directly proportional to how stupid they are.
