The Lyrics

A 1989-2019 update of the original song here.
Okay boomer, Christian Grey
Rob Schneider, Santa Fe
O.J. Simpson, Vote for Clinton
Goose hit Fabio
Neo-Nazis, Paris Hilton,
Super Saiyans, Peter Griffin
Richard Gere, Britney Spears
Canada’s Trudeau

Frozen, Girls, dot com
Equal pay, Octomum
Mando, the Zinger Pie,
Margaret Thatcher, Lady Di
One full hour black screen
Bye Felicia, slay queen
Ray Romano, Paparazzi
Aunty Donna, Queer Eye

We didn't stop the fire
Yeah, the country’s burning
To fuel Murdoch’s earning
These climate change deniers
Are a bit misguided
May as well ignite it

Got Bin Laden, covered up
Brazzers and 2 Girls 1 Cup
Um-br-ella, free Mandela
Legalised pot
iPhone, silicone
Hey Panini, Enron
Can’t trust pre-polls
Drop It Like It’s Hot

Weinstein, Sean Bean
Bathwater from Belle Delphine
SpaceX rocket, Anchorman
Walter, Jesse, we all Stan
Fargo, Joker steps
Ariana’s new ex
Prince disgrace, cyberspace
Colour of this blue dress?

We didn't stop the fire
If you’re on this journey
You should vote for Bernie
Things start to look quite dire
When it’s all one-sided
Keeping us divided

Milkshake duck, Apple Mac
Cosby scandal, drone attack
Thot, thicc, Family Guy
Girls eat hot chip and lie
Elton John, hashtag lol
Left Shark from Superbowl
Hot weather countrywide
Chicken of Kentucky Fried

J.K Rowling, All Star
Dance Monkey, Daria
And I oop, Lizzo
Four for you, Glen Coco
#MeToo, Sing for me
Unisex amenities
Hurried Brexit sideshow
Bingeing The Sopranos

We didn’t stop the fire
It is disconcerting
That there’s no averting
Temperatures creeping higher
We should all be frightened
As the noose is tightened

Tina Fey, 4chan
Stranger Things and Ayn Rand
Killed Steve Irwin
Leo’s nomination
Orwell’s 1984
Palestine / Israeli war
Netflix, Sean Penn
Uber Eats, #NotAllMen
Trump’s wall, Thank U Next
Quitting our religious sects
That shit cray, aint in Jay
What she order, fish filet?

We didn’t stop the fire
In these fumes we’re fuming
And our doom is looming
Drought leaves us even drier
We protest and riot
As they all deny it

Burning coal, Po and Finn
Vote for Clinton back again
Hip hop, Thrift Shop
Jobs and Gates, gun stocks
I am Aegon, Columbine
Kevin Spacey’s hairline
PepsiCola in a can
Who is Kim Kardashian?

Michael Jordan, Betty White
Tragic when Harambe died
Hypertext, cybersex
Wig snatched, thirsty betch
Hydro thermos VSCO whores
Spiderman’s still Marvel lore
Rick and Morty Szechuan sauce
What else do we have in store?

We didn't stop the fire
We’re so undiscerning
We don’t yearn for learning
Soon we will all expire
With no-one to mourn
It will still burn on, and on,
and on, and on, and on, and on…
