Billy Joel Forgets Lyrics to "We Didn't Start to Fire"

Billy Joel Forgets Lyrics to

Billy Joel lost his place in his song, We Didn't Start the Fire at a concert in Toronto on March 9.

Joel stopped after missing a part to the song and said, "Wait a minute.  That ain't right.  All you gotta do is f*** up one word in that song and it's a train wreck."

We Didn't Start the Fire is one of Joel's least favorite songs he ever wrote.  In fact, he wanted to go on to the next song after the screw-up.  He told the crowd, "It's the same thing verse after verse.  Just the words change. It's one of the worst melodies I ever wrote."

After finishing the song, Joel told the crowd, "We're not on tape. You don't see much of that anymore. Ok, let's hope we get through this one."
