The English and German lyrics are basically the same...some of the verses are in different places, that's all.

I guess I'll have to get used to the remix then.

To this day Nena sings better in German but her English sure is cute. I for one am a fan of both. And alligator, that clubmix came out in '83 on the English album not the USA one)and was very cool for the time.

By the way, the English one doesn't even say the same words… it doesn't translate directly.

The English Version "99 Red Balloons" doesn't even translate correctly to German... If you translate word for word German to English the so g makes little to no sense lol.... Great song none the less
