The Lyrics

This ain't the end of the world coming. Good and bad things have been happening since the dawn of time.
Noriega, Cold War, Mandela, Berlin Wall,
MC Hammer, Kuwait, Roseanne is on TV.

C.I.S, Warsaw, Clarence Thomas, Gulf War,
Boris Yeltsin, AOL, the hostages are free.

Rodney King, PDAs, John Gotti, EPA.
Bill Clinton, Somalia, No more Yugoslavia.

Don't ask don't tell, Jurassic Park, Brady Bill,
Waco, World Trade, no Czechoslovakia.

We didn't start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
No we didn't light it
But we tried to fight it

Kurt Cobain, OJ, Pulp Fiction, IRA,
Paula Jones, Newt Gingrich, baseball players strike.

Oklahoma, Farrakhan, Tokyo, forget Saddam,
Whitewater, Bosnia, and Susan Smith gets life.

Black hole, Tupac, Menendez brothers, James Watt,
Unabomber, ValuJet, Clinton's back as president,

Princess Di, B.I.G., septuplets, DVD,
Hong Kong, Heaven's Gate, higher unemployment rate.

We didn't start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
No we didn't light it
But we tried to fight it

Bin Laden, Helmut Kohl, Iraq is back, Kosovo,
Lewinsky, Viagra, space station's good to go.

Impeachment, Euro, Y2K, Columbine, China trade,
Phantom Menace, Pokemon, N*sync in the studio.

Milosevic, Al Gore, Microsoft is waging war,
US coming out of debt, Business on the Internet.

Estrada's out, Hainan, bloodshed in Kalimantan
World Trade falls, Taliban, US in Afghanistan.

Enron, Zimbabwe, sniper in the belt way,
Catholic priests, get Saddam, still the planet's moving on.

We didn't start the fire
It was always burning
Since the world's been turning
We didn't start the fire
But when we are gone
It will still burn on and on and on...
