Ninety-nine red balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, it's 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
As ninety-nine red balloons go by

from German band's (Nena?) lovely catchy song from about 1985 or so: 99 Red Balloons [99 Luftballons in the original]
