A rap sequel to "We Didn't Start the Fire", covering the world's biggest events from 1990 until today.
We didn't start the fire, but we kept it burnin'!
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.
Mandela released, and the gulf war was
An attack of the Iraq nation,
Thatcher's record-breakin resignation,
Hannibal Lecter cuttin' face and,
Russian Federation creation
World Wide Web's liberation,
Hurricane Andrew's devestation
AOL, Janet Reno, text your peeps the new release
BSB, and as we know, next comes peace in the middle east
Do you Yahoo? Tonya Harding, Cobain's suicide committed
The glove wasn't fitted that's why O.J. was acquitted
Simba took the throne, mama always said, stupid is as stupid does,
Genocide in Rwanda, six best Friends took all the buzz,

Gotta catch'em all, Elmo loves to laugh, first medical mary jane
Flight 800's crashin' plane, hi-def tv so insane!
Tupac shot and killed, reign of Kim Jong-il, then the death of B.I.G..,
Tyson fightin' bitin ears, first clonin' Dolly the sheep

JFK Jr.'s plane, Y2K! ring the alarms,
Elian G detained, then returned to his father's arms
DV-R your favorite hour, George Bush Jr. into power,
Never forget the day, in the USA, when the planes knocked down the towers
Then the Anthrax shame, and the Ipods came,
Patriot's champ reign, and the smart phone flame,
Idols look for fame, Myspace became,
Facebook my name, same sex campaign,
Hybrids savin' gasses, Youtube videos for the masses,
Pope Jean Paul II passes, New Orleans hurricane disasters,
Fidel of Cuba leavin' seat, 50 years you know he ran it,
Wii takin over, update your tweet, and now Pluto's not a planet.
Hussein's noose tied, and the gas price rise
to a mark so high, worst that's ever spent
U.S. car crisis, the white house eyes
gets to look at its first black President
the King of Pop dies, and the Swine Flu flies,
Tiger Woods' lies ties back to his lady,
the whole world cries at the death count size
from the earthquake risin' out in Haiti
Egypt's people rebel to overthrow the man,
Earthquake, tsunami, nuclear crisis in Japan
The fire keeps on burnin', it ain't hard to understand,
That the world's even hotter than it was when it began .
