We didnt start the fire

Channel surfing last night I heard Billy Joel singing "We Didnt Start The Fire." Remember?

Harry Truman, Doris Day, Red China, Johnnie Ray
South Pacific, Walter Winchell, Joe DiMaggio

Joe McCarthy, Richard Nixon, Studebaker, television
North Korea, South Korea, Marilyn Monroe
....
...
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.....

Ahem.
We need to update this song. Most non-boomers wont get any of the references. And really, history moves on. Update.

Hell, could prob do a full 7 verse version with just Babyhand lies! Heh. Sorry.

O.o o.O
We could never figure out what "the fire" was supposed to be. Do you have a theory?
