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

CHORUS

Lawrence of Arabia, British Beatlemania

Pope Paul, Malcolm X, British politician sex
JFK, blown away, what else do I have to say


CHORUS


Birth control, Ho Chi Minh, Richard Nixon back again

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


CHORUS


We didn't start the fire
But when we are gone
Will it still burn on, and on, and on, and on...
