Nena on War (english)

Modified: 11:19:40 PM

You and I in 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, Something's out there.
Floating in the summer sky.
99 red balloons go by.

99 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.
Where 99 red balloons go by.

99 Decision Street.
99 ministers meet.
To worry, worry, super-scurry.
Call the troops out in a hurry.
This is what we've waited for.
This is it boys, this is war.
The president is on the line
As 99 red balloons go by.

99 Knights of the air
Ride super-high-tech jet fighters
Everyone's a superhero.
Everyone's a Captain Kirk.
With orders to identify.
To clarify and classify.
Scramble in the summer sky.
As 99 red balloons go by.

99 dreams I have had.
In every one a red balloon.
It's all over and I'm standing 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.

(99 Red Balloons-Nena)
Porque nosotros... (spanish)
06 Apr 2003


Me doy cuenta de que vamos a morir,
porque nosotros... no dominamos la técnica del combate,
porque nos hemos vuelto Quijotes,
porque... nos morimos de hambre.
Nuestros amigos... tras las fronteras,
contemplan un grano de su trigo,
una gota de su aceite... y preguntan:
¿Cómo estará nuestra casa abandonada?
¿Cómo estará la tierra?... ¿La reconoceremos al volver?
¡Ay de nosotros!...
Pedazos de un pueblo refugiado, perseguido.
¡Ay de nosotros, de nuestra vida de esclavos!
¿Volveremos? ¿Volveremos?

(Samih Al-Qasim)

"Gabriel Péri" ( Paul Eluard)


Il y a des mots qui font vivre

Et ce sont des mots innocents+

Le mot chaleur le mot confiance

Amour justice et le mot liberté

Le mot enfant et le mot gentillesse

Et certains noms de fleurs et certains noms de fruits

Le mot courage et le mot découvrir

Et le mot frère et le mot camarade

Et certains noms de pays de villages

Et certains noms de femmes et d’amis

Ajoutons-y Péri
