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 burnin',
Since the world's been turnin'
We didn't start the fire,
But when we are gone
Will it still burn 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...


Here is my version, and it could only be two minutes long, so it is a little bit short
And it is in chronological order:


1992- 1993
Barney and Friends on TV, Bohemian Rhapsody
“Got Milk,”commercial, Chicken Soup for the Soul

1994
Genocide in Rwanda, Nancy and Tanya
Aldrich Ames, caught spying, OJ Simpson, Lion King

We didn’t start the fire,
It was always burnin’
Since the world’s been turnin’
We didn’t start the fire,
No we didn’t light it,
But we tried to fight it.

1997
Princess D was in a crash, we love Pikachu and Ash
Harry Potter stole the show, Tickle Me Elmo


2000
Cha-cha Slide, TiVo, Dragon Ball Z, Yu-Gi-Oh
Y2K, PDAs, Elian Gonzalez

Chorus

2001
9/11 tragedy, would Al Qaida leave us be
Anthrax is sent in the mail, we fight AIDS to no avail

2002
American Idol, Sniper attack, W chokes on snack,
Winter Olympics, Star Wars view, Lord of the Rings II

Chorus

2005-2006
Asian Tsunami, Blackberry, iPod mini
Brad and Angelina, Hurricane Katrina

Cheney and his quail gun, here we go, we’re almost done
1, 2, 3, 4, I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE

We didn’t start the fire,
It was always burnin’
Since the world’s been turnin’
We didn’t start the fire,
Even though we’re gone,
It’ll still burn on
And on, and on, and on, and on!

We had to perform it in front of our class blush.gif comment on it!

And I had to make a powerpoint presentation too with pictures, I might post it on here later...
