A few months ago when Billy Joel was coming to town the History major in me couldn’t resist adding lyrics to the 25 years since We Didn’t Start the Fire came out for the New Times. The response was a solid silence and since I spent way too much on this I present it to you again on this forum loyal reader. Feel free to sing along.

MC Hammer, Kuwait, Long Dong Silver Hi Ho

Wayne’s World, Right Said Fred, Cross Colours, Gennifer Flowers giving head

We didn’t start the fire

It was always burning

We didn’t start the fire

No we didn’t light it

But we tried to fight it
