REFRAIN

We didn’t start the fire,                                Ce n’est pas nous qui avons allumé le feu

It was always burning,                                  Il a toujours brulé             

Since the world’s been turning                    Depuis que la terre tourne

We didn’t start the fire, No we didn’t light it,

But we tried to fight it                                     Mais nous avons essayé de le combattre
