Parody of "We Didn't Start the Fire"
The middle kid came home from school two days ago and mentioned that one of her teachers played Billy Joel's, "We Didn't Start the Fire" in her history class. She was given the lyrics and mentioned that she didn't even understand what half of those historical mentions meant.
So I slapped "We Didn't Start the Fire" in the CD player and we talked about some of the history that was covered in there. Did I mention that Billy Joel is one of my favorites?
Yesterday morning, she got up out of bed and said, "Mom, I can't get those lyrics out of my head!"
Billy Joel did a great thing for kids all over when he wrote that little ditty of a song.
So today, when I spied this over at Meryl's Blog, I just had to take a look:
We Didn't Start the Fire (amusing video with lyrics and original song)
Here Comes Another Bubble (amusing parody).
And like I told my daughter, Marlee Matlin can be seen in the original:
Billy Joel--We Didn't Start the Fire.
