Question for the Germans out there...

Accidentally posted it in my regular journal, initially...

As you can probably tell by looking at the music noted on the entry, the 80s classic 99 Luft Balloons just came up. Poking around a little bit online I've seen people noting that there are several differences between the German and English versions of the song, but I'm nowhere near good enough in German to really pick them up and nobody seems to be really detailing what said differences are. Is it just a matter of liberties taken to make a song still sound like a song once translated, or are there serious content differences between the two songs?
