My high school history teacher had a poster with the lyrics on it!
We didn't start the fire, the only song that can have so many random consecutive lyrics

We didn't start the fire
Eeee! Billy Joel!
Billy Joel!!! My favorite artist ever :)
Thats a good lesson and would've been fun. Do you remember what you wrote?
"We Didn't Start The Fire" by Billy Joel.
No it is. That line was references to the mid-1950s
That's correct. There's a big gap from 1963 upwards
We didn't start the fire. Billy Joel.
One of my favorite artists. Not one of my favorite songs.
The only name that I've heard of is Liberace. I have a feeling it's not the Los Vegas Liberace.
Love Billy Joel myself. Got my 14 year old hooked too. 😄
