Hast du etwas Zeit für mich
Dann singe ich ein Lied für dich
Von 99 Luftballons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Est-ce à moi que tu pensais?
Alors écoute ma chanson
Des 99 ballons
Qu’on a lâchés à l’horizon

99 Luftballoons
Auf ihrem Weg zum Horizont
Hielt man für UFOs aus dem All
Darum schickte ein General
'ne Fliegerstaffel hinterher
Alarm zu geben, wenn’s so wär
Dabei war’n da am Horizont
Nur 99 Luftballons

99 Düsenflieger
jeder war ein grosser Krieger
Hielten sich für Captain Kirk
Das gab ein grosses Feuerwerk
Die Nachbarn haben nichts gerafft
Und fühlten sich gleich angemacht
Dabei schoss man am Horizont
Auf 99 Luftballons

99 Kriegsminister
Streichholz und Benzinkanister
Hielten sich für schlaue Leute
Witterten schon fette Beute
Riefen: Krieg und wollten Macht
Mann, wer hätte das gedacht
Dass es einmal soweit kommt
Weg’n 99 Luftballons
99 Luftballons
99 Luftballons

99 années de guerre
Aucune place pour les vainqueurs
Plus de ministres de la guerre
Et dans le ciel plus un chasseur
Aujourd’hui je fais mes rondes
Il n’y a plus que de ruines dans le monde
Ce fin ballon que j’ai trouvé
Pour toi je le laisse s’envoler

Do you have some time for me?
Then I’ll sing a song for you
About 99 balloons
On their way to the horizon
Are you perhaps thinking of me?
Then I’ll sing a song for you
About 99 balloons
On their way to the horizon

99 balloons
On their way to the horizon
They thought they were UFOs from space
So a general sent
A flying squad out there
To raise the alarm if it was true
Yet there on the horizon were
Only 99 balloons

99 jet airplanes
Each one was a great warrior
Thought that they were Captain Kirk
There were great fireworks
The neighbors didn’t understand anything
And felt immediately felt “pissed off”/provoked
Yet there they shot on the horizon
At 99 balloons

99 war ministers
Matches and petrol cans
Thought that they were clever people
Already caught wind of great spoils 
Shouted: War, and wanted power
Man, who would have thought
That one day it would come to this
Because of 99 balloons

99 years of war
Don’t leave a place for victors
There are no ministers of war any more
No jet planes either
Today I’m doing my rounds
Seeing the world lying in ruins
Found a balloon
Think of you and let it fly

Stunning portraits of Siamese fighting fish

These stunning portraits of Siamese fighting fish seemingly floating in mid air are reel-y some-fin special. With their long flowing fins and brilliant colors, this striking series of photographs show the elegant animal in all of its beauty. Photographer, Visarute Angkatavanich, 43, created the dramatic pictures by using a range of lighting techniques in his studio and used crystal clear water to capture the unique creatures vivid array of colors. Despite being a commercial photographer by trade, Visarute decided to turn his hand to photographing fish after recalling fond memories of keeping them as a child. (CATERS)
