Billy Joel question: Did he update We Didn't Start the Fire...or did I dream it?

I thought I remember from a few years ago Billy redoing the song and updating to have lyrics from 89-current.

Did this really happen? I tried you-tubing it but couldn't find it.

Does anyone know if this exists or did I dream it? I don't typically dream about Billy Joel, but who knows

If it does, can some send a link to the video...

Thanks for any info.

Ullman shorts, Christmas show, Marge's fling, Homer's bro,
Bart in well, Flanders fails, Whacking snakes, monorail,
Mr. Plow, Homer space, Sideshow Bob steps on rakes,
Lisa's future, Selma's hubby, Marge not proud, Homer chubby,

Homer worries Bart is gay, Poochie, U2, NRA,
Hippies, Vegas, and Japan, Octuplets, and Bart's boy band,
Marge murmurs, Maude croaks, Lisa buddhist, Homer tokes,
Maggie blows Burns away, What else do I have to say?
They'll never stop The Simpsons, Have no fears, we've got stories for years,

Like, Marge becomes a robot, maybe Moe gets a cell phone,
Has Bart ever owned a bear or, How 'bout a crazy wedding?
Where something happens, and doo doo doo doo, doo
Sorry for the clip show, have no fears, we've got stories for years.

Winner!


7Keys, no Billy Joel has not updated the song. He retired from songwriting in '94. Since then he has put out a classical album in '01 and one new single earlier this year.

I could see him joking around on stage ad-libbing, but as for something official, the answer would be no.

I consider the "Internet people" video a kind of updated "WDStF".

I'm at work, so I can't get to YouTube to provide a link, but a quick search should turn it up.
