Ryan Started the Fire, lyrics and video

Here is the smash hit mashup, Ryan Started the Fire.

It’s not just a Season 2 ditty anymore.

Ryan started the fire lyrics

Ryan Howard, Holly Flax, David Wallace, Future Fax
Jim Halpert, Dwight Schrute, mustard yellow shirt

Creed Bratton, Michael Scott, Darryl’s cool, Toby’s not
Workspace, not an office, everybody hurts

Elizabeth the whore, Todd Packer, Sith lord,
Hunter, that one night, you made everything all right

Water mark, fun run, beer me, Stamford’s done
It’s not Dwigt, it’s Dwight, Stanley’s gonna be all right

CHORUS:
Ryan started the fire
It just started burning,
Hey the temp’s still learning
Ryan started the fire
But he didn’t hide it
Because Dwight did find it

Woman’s suit, green flute, breast enhancement lawsuit
Penises on the brain, motel art, carpet stain

Stapler in Jell-O, I’m coming out hetero,
TMI, MRI, making love in the rain

Fireside confessions, valuable life lessons,
Foreman grill, Dwight’s speech, isn’t this a nude beach?

Singing a cappella, under my Angerella,
Sandals, I have worms, Utica branch breach

Borientation, sales initiation,
Chicken teriyaki, I’ll have some nagasaki

Abercrombie and Fitch, just hug it out bitch,
Do my laundry, don’t enter without knocking

CHORUS

That’s what she said, squeaky chair, bobble head, health care,
Sprinkles, Bandit, throwing stars, liars don’t have Mounds bars

Bleeding nipples, Carol Stills, baby picture, rabies kills,
Bob Vance, fired Roy, and a kidnapped pizza boy

Pamalamadingdong, are you a fan of William Hung?
Fire crawl, hate ball, insults in the bathroom stall

Beet farm, false alarm, women have weak arms
While today it is me, soon we all shall fall

CHORUS

Sugar boobs, Da Vinci Code, are you calling me a ho?
Dwight you ignorant slut, Stanley nickels, Schrute bucks

Billy Merchant, yogurt caps, hidden weapons, email taps,
Dinner party, business school, pencil fence, gimme knucks

That cheesy pita’s toasted, oh boom, roasted!
Oscar is really gay, I love Pretzel Day

Oven mitt or iPod, Ben Franklin’s lightning rod,
It’s Meredith’s birthday, I know why Oscar’s “sick” today

CHORUS

Watch out a bat’s on the loose, hello are you Mother Goose?
Unshun, reshun, cripples can’t call shotgun,

For you babe, complain file, keep your foot out of the aisle,
I love inside jokes, someday I’ll be a part of one

Booze cruise, broken hip, Nard Dog, paper clips
Have you seen Jan’s boobs? Look, Ryan’s on YouTube

Ed Truck is outta luck, careful Dwight’s got nun chucks,
Party Planning Committee, try my cookie cookie

Gimli – nerd, commanding third, look Toby killed a bird,
Hey it’s Scrantonicity, Pam Beesly will you marry me?

CHORUS

The IT guy’s a terrorist, careful don’t get Andy pissed,
That says California roll, my ho ain’t my ho no mo

Foot butter, power trip, Call of Duty, Herr’s chips,
Jail photo, Kevin’s slow, extra dough, crossbow

Phyllis flashed, Martin Nash, Kevin’s M&M stash,
Ungrateful beeyotch hotline, boy have you lost your mind?

Dumb or fat? What’s a text? Spiderface, who’s jinxed next?
Sushi bar, CIA, gaydar, hate crime

Does the carpet match the drapes? Can you make a wooden stake?
Second life, I was raped, making near-death will tapes

Mexican lemonade, the world needs a new plague,
Falling into a lake, that Ben Franklin is a fake!

CHORUS

CHORUS

  1. OMG that was awesome! so hilarious and perfect!! i now have to rewatch it 5 times to catch everything! LOVE IT

  2. That was really cool, i loved how they had clips from every season, from 1 to just the last episode!

  3. I cannot even explain the depths to which this made my day. I’m going to have to watch it again. Love it!

  4. Oh. My. God. That was awesome- why has nobody thought to do this before now? Genius. Volunteers to type up the lyrics for the benefit of all Tally-dom?

  5. Hey guys! We’re the creators of this video and we can’t tell you how much we appreciate your enthusiasm and support! Just a couple nights ago, we decided “Ryan Started the Fire” needed to be a full song, not just a one-liner. It took us a single sleepless night to come up with the lyrics and another day to gather the clips and put them in sequence. This project was a BLAST and we hope to create similar ones in the future. Check our page once in a while! Expect more Office-related videos soon!

  6. Great job Brad and Ashley! You two are my heroes!

    I adored the video and now have to watch it again!!

    Whoo hoo!!!

  7. Okay, seriously – words aren’t enough to describe the happiness I now feel because of that video. That was beyond amazing, Brad and Ashley! Definitely my favorite fan-vid ever.

  9. O! M! G! So comprehensive. Every season, classic scenes & plots. I teared up. Thank you Brad E. and Ashley G.

  10. This is a-maz-ing!

    I think the lyrics is missing a stanza though, after the “insults on the bathroom wall” line?

  11. Simply amazing! Thanks for posting the lyrics! Brad E and Ashley G — we can’t wait for the next vid :)

  12. Seriously that was too freaking awesome! I loved it, and have no idea how you came up with that. Thanks for a whole lot of laughs!

  13. I can’t help but echo the comments before this one. Your vid is amazingly creative and so fun it hurts. Thanks for showing such a great appreciation for the material and rocking my socks off.

    Also, your song is stuck in my head now.

  14. Holy WOW! Awesome video. Made my stinky v-day so much better!!!!!! Nice job with the lyrics they rocked! Wouldn’t it be awesome if this showed up on one of the season dvd’s as a bonus feature?!?!

  15. Totally awesome! Can’t believe you did it all in one night and day! Loved, loved, loved it! Plus, I have always liked that song.

  16. BRILLIANT. (And so weird, because I had just been thinking that it was strange that nobody had done this yet!)

  17. It’s everything I love about The Office and then some!

    This just made today the best Valentine’s day ever. Great work :)

  18. Beyond.Awesome.

    Is there a way to make this an mp3? I’d listen to this non-stop on my iTunes playlist!

  19. The single best thing in my life. WOW This is amazing. As a huge Billy Joel and a much bigger Office fan, I can’t imagine any single thing being better than this. AMAZING references. I want to meet and marry one/both of you!

  20. #32. The missing line after ‘insults on the bathroom wall’ is:

    Beet farm, false alarm, women have weak arms, while today it is me, soon we all should fall

    Btw: I love, love, love this vid!!!!!!!!!!!!

    [from tanster: added to the lyrics. thanks!]

  21. Is it wrong that I watched this 10 times in a row? After I type this, I’m pretty sure I’ll go watch it a few more times.

  22. Just got this email from Rainn Wilson:

    “Did you guys see this? A whole new level of office fan video

    this must have taken months

    and what an amazing william joel rhyme scheme!”

    :)

  23. Rainn just posted this on his Twitter, and I just watched it. HILARIOUS! Great job, you guys! I think the Tallyheads have a new anthem!

  24. Wow. Were able to combine clips all the way up to the Stress Relief episode? That is the best video and lyrics I think I’ve seen for this show! Thanks for bringing a smile to my face!

  25. Jenna posted it on her myspace now. She said the cast is forwarding it around to each other! And this is why I love the Office so much.

  26. Hey guys, that’s pretty awesome! Someone on Northern Attack posted a link on Friday and I think I’ve watched it more times than I can count since then. Everytime I watch it, it just has me smiling throughout the whole video. Kudos, job well done, and zippideedoodah!

  27. This is FANTASTIC! My husband and I laughed out loud all the way through it. As someone who just finished having to write a rhymed and metered poem for my job, I have an immense amount of respect for people who can pull off such an awesome “William Joel rhyme scheme.” Kudos!

  28. “pam-a-lam-a-ding-dong, are you a fan of william hung?”

    Easily my favourite lines.

    Congrats! Such a good video.

    Over the 5 seasons, the office really has had some great moments.

  29. that was the BEST THING EVAHHH!! oh man that was amazing! way to go you guys! my fave lines are the “pamalamadingdong..” as well as “look it’s scrantonicity, pam beasley will you marry me?” !! just awesome :)

  30. I take my hat off to those two!!!! Pure genius. It’s already all over the casts myspace pages (well Jenna’s at least so far). this is by far the coolest thing done by a fan! Great job guys!!!

  31. Absolutely amazing video – I love it! Great job!

    But, I must warn everyone, I think the site that has the MP3 download of the song is loaded with spyware. When I downloaded it, it did crazy things to my laptop. Going to have to have it checked out tomorrow.

  32. oh jeez. I absolutely love it. And I love that I know every single reference! yay!
    great work guys =]

  33. This is so good!!!! The download worked fine for me and I set it as my ringtone! Love this so much!!

  34. I love rewriting lyrics and doing spoofs of anything I can get my hands on. I have to say this is one of the funniest videos I have EVER seen. Any true office fan will get every reference and will have to re-watch it several times to get all of them! Well done! Can I help you guys do the next one??? Will work for Schrute bucks! [email protected]

  35. This is absolutely incredible! I feel like this deserves to be on one of the DVDs. Those lyrics left me totally awestruck.

  36. Woot! Woot! You have made a timeless masterpiece! I love it! And everyone who sees it does, too! Hilarious and really, really great! Thank you for sharing!

  37. Brilliant.
    Awesome.
    Wonderful.
    I rocked out and laughed the entire time.
    Not to mention that’s my favorite William Joel song of all time.

  38. Well done! That was really creative! I second that this should be included on one of the DvDs… it was great.

  39. This was amazing. I’ve been feeling pretty blah about The Office lately and this video was a great reminder of all the reasons why I love this show. This was like a little Office therapy for me. Great work – thank you!!

  40. I tend to be a bit skeptical with fan-made videos, but this was brilliant! By the end of it I was just grinning, amazing how it manages to sum up the awesomeness of the show in four minutes. Wow.

  41. Let me just add my praise to everyone else’s and say that I loved your video, Brad and Ashley! You picked out the best lines from all five seasons and featured every character, including hilarious little walk-on parts that I’d almost forgotten about (like kidnapped pizza boy)! I can tell that I’m going to have to watch this multiple times to catch all the fantastic cleverness! Way to go! Awesome!

  42. Thank you so much! I needed that today as my office is really stressing me out! Thanks for the break! Great Job!

  43. Thanks for the lyrics, and, again, brilliant! NBC should pay you to put it on their site!

    My favorite line:
    Have you seen Jan’s boobs? Look, Ryan’s on Youtube

  44. GREATEST VIDEO EVER!!!
    Is there anyway to download this, b/c I’d love to be able to listen to this on my Ipod.

  45. I love how this was posted only a few days ago, and all of a sudden there’s 100,000 views on it! The magic of youtube. (and Jenna and Rainn’s plugs.)

  46. eh it’s all right vocal-wise, but I loved how the song had everything that is funny about the Office and sums up why we are all fans of this wonderful TV show. This is great.

  47. This is one of the best video’s i have ever seen! Totally sums up the office, and why it’s the best show going around…

    Great job!

  48. FAB TUNE! I believe another verse is emerging with the now defunct Michael Scott Paper Company

    Cheese Balls, Pancake Brunch
    Fishy smell, Number Crunch…..

  50. Is there an mp3 for the extended version as well.

    Do Brad E & Ashley G get Dundies for these videos? Because they’re just beyond awesome.
