WE DIDN’T START THE FIRE, 2016

WE DIDN’T START THE FIRE, 2016
(My compilation of this eventful year sung in tune to Billy Joel’s 90’s hit. One of my friends mentioned I need to send this Billly so he could do a remake of it!)

Artist Prince, Harper Lee, John Glen, David Bowie
Elon Musk, Space-X, Internet-of-things
Dylan’s Noble surprise, Teresa is canonized
Glen Frey, Duterte, Mohammad Ali

Chile Copa sequel, Leicester city EPL
Castro, Hamilton, Chibok girls to return
Refugees on the brink, Cubs got a winning team
Sharapova, Brangelina, Zaha Hadid 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

Burning man is thirty, Queen turns ninety
Aleppo, Palmyra, vote Harambe
Sarkozy campaign hole, Thailand mourns Bhumibol
Cavs in the NBA, Revenant bear

Carsen’s the chess king, Bolt strikes like lightning
Fallujah speaks the dead, Shakespeare’s missing head
North Korea missile, Paris climate agreement
Nationalism, Globalism, make America great again

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

Zika, Phelps, Wikileaks, El-chapo hide and seek
Happy Danes, BLM, North Dakota breathes again
Dilma Rousseff has to go, Jupiter meets Juno
Indian’s de-monetize, EU loses satellite

Driverless Uber cars, Clinton email infowars
Cumberbatch’s everywhere, 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

Turkish coup, Egyptair, Post-truth, Brexit
Alphabet, Theranos, Hurricane in Haiti
Icelandic thunder-clap, Brazil soccer team crash
Cohen Halleluijah, spread of xenophobia

Trump tweets yet again, stop goes the Mannequin
Pulse club, Kaepernick, Pokemon panic
RIP VCR, Facebook’s in the VR
Kanye West, in distress, 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
It will still burn on and on and on and on
And on and on and on and on...
