I Updated the Lyrics to This Billy Joel Song for 2017

Can someone with good video-editing and musical skills PLEASE make a sub-titled parody video using these lyrics?

We Didn't Start the Fire (Parody of Billy Joel's 1989 Song, Updated for 2017)

Stephen Bannon, KKK, homophobics, woke baes
Trans-Pacific, Gallup polling, Putin’s puppet show
Trump is worse than Richard Nixon, addicted to his television
North Korea, South Korea, “Little Marco”


Lyin’ Ted, atom bombs, refreshing browsers all day long
FAKE NEWS, spreading lies, a crowd that falsely multiplies
So-called judges, fake tears, Muslim BAN, stoking fears
Paul Ryan, KFC, Scotch tape on a neck tie!

We didn’t start the fire
Now the planet's burning
And we’re anti-learning
We didn’t start the fire
No we didn’t light it
But we tried to fight it

Refugees, Russian hacks, FBI, alt-facts
Richard Spencer, Kellyanne, L.L. Bean stock

Ivanka’s tanking fashion line, Melania who plagiarized
Rick Rolls, taco bowls, Obamacare block

John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Congress doesn't have a plan
Bathrobes, emoluments, time to GET SMART!

Women’s March, pussy hats, tiny hands, Democrats
Orange face, hair disgrace, "glam room" in the White House

We didn’t start the fire
Now the planet's burning
And we’re anti-learning
We didn’t start the fire
No we didn’t light it
But we tried to fight it

Bowling Green, Iraq, Wikileaks, Big Macs,
Tax returns, First Amendment, Julian Assange

Private server email, Black Lives Matter, third rail
Neo-Nazis, Liar Spice, SNL’s not very nice

NBC, CNN, voter fraud, Marine LePen, Hamilton, viral memes, is this all a bad dream?

Mike Pence, hashtags, late-night #MAGA Twitter brags
Rogue accounts, Sally Yates, church is melding into state.

We didn’t start the fire
Now the planet's burning
And we’re anti-learning
We didn’t start the fire
No we didn’t light it
But we tried to fight it

Hannity, Infowars, urinating Russian whores
Filibuster, VERY SAD, 
Yemen raid DISASTER!

Mar-a-lago golf carts, Brexit, lawsuits, Breitbart
Patriots, protests, bathroom bills, policing sex

Pope Francis, Facebook feed, corporate lobbies, rampant greed
Common sense, equal pay, what else do I have to say?

We didn’t start the fire
Now the planet's burning
And we’re anti-learning
We didn’t start the fire
No we didn’t light it
But we tried to fight it

Birth control, thin skin, Scott Baio’s a has-been
Scientists, gun rights, DeVos was some pick

Netanyahu, Palestine, Dakota Access Pipeline
Made a “bad deal” with Iran, crumbling Afghanistan

Feuding friends, Jared K., golden toilets, Doomsday
Foreign debts, homeless vets, super-bugs, Trump regrets

Plastic garbage washed ashore, U.S. flirts with martial law
Schwarzenegger ratings wars, I can’t take it anymore!

We didn’t start the fire
Now the planet's burning
And we’re anti-learning
We didn’t start the fire
No we didn’t light it
But we tried to fight it

But when we are gone
Will it still burn on, and on, and on, and on...
