I think I’m going to make my children transcribe and research everything from “We Didn’t Start The Fire”:
When I was in high school, the last couple of days of the Honors Western Civilization class featured a video that covered the 20th century. For extra credit, we could turn in our notes from watching the film. I transcribed the lyrics to this song (because we did not have the Internet, gentle reader, and either had to go by ear or by the tiny liner notes in the cassette case).
Although I did not actually turn these notes in, a friend of mine took them and turned them in. The teacher, of course, had no idea.
