Lyrics:

Harry Truman, Doris Day, Red China, Johnnie Ray South Pacific, Walter Winchell, Joe DiMaggio Joe McCarthy, Richard Nixon, Studebaker, television North Korea, South Korea, Marilyn Monroe

Rosenbergs, H-bomb, Sugar Ray, Panmunjom Brando, The King and I and The Catcher in the Rye Eisenhower, vaccine, England′s got a new queen Marciano, Liberace, Santayana goodbye

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

Joseph Stalin, Malenkov, Nasser and Prokofiev Rockefeller, Campanella, Communist Bloc Roy Cohn, Juan Peron, Toscanini, dacron Dien Bien Phu falls, Rock Around the Clock

Einstein, James Dean, Brooklyn′s got a winning team Davy Crockett, Peter Pan, Elvis Presley, Disneyland Bardot, Budapest, Alabama, Krushchev Princess Grace, Peyton Place, trouble in the Suez

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

Little Rock, Pasternak, Mickey Mantle, Kerouac Sputnik, Chou En-Lai, Bridge on the River Kwai Lebanon, Charles de Gaulle, California baseball Starkweather, homicide, children of thalidomide

Uh, a-ho

Buddy Holly, Ben Hur, space monkey, Mafia Hula hoops, Castro, Edsel is a no-go U-2, Syngman Rhee, payola and Kennedy Chubby Checker, Psycho, Belgians in the Congo

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

Hemingway, Eichmann, Stranger in a Strange Land Dylan, Berlin, Bay of Pigs invasion Lawrence of Arabia, British Beatlemania Ole Miss, John Glenn, Liston beats Patterson Pope Paul, Malcolm X, British politician sex JFK, blown away, what else do I have to say

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

Birth control, Ho Chi Minh, Richard Nixon back again Moonshot, Woodstock, Watergate, punk rock Begin, Reagan, Palestine, terror on the airline Ayatollah′s in Iran, Russians in Afghanistan

Wheel of Fortune, Sally Ride, heavy metal, suicide Foreign debts, homeless vets, AIDS, crack, Bernie Goetz Hypodermics on the shores, China's under martial law Rock and roller cola wars, I can′t take it anymore

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 Will it still burn on, and on, and on And on, and on, and on, and on, and on?

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

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

We didn′t start the fire It was always burning since the world's been turning We didn't start the fire

This video has it all, too. Breakdancing, firespinning, karate, dancing on a piano, inappropriate sexual suggestions.

uh... this video is very 80s, perhaps the most ever, and it's a spectacle of utter horror.

There's no 50's music community to post the original Ritchie Valens version, so here's a 1987 cover.
