We Will Rock You parodies

Only a handful of rock songs really became enduring schoolyard parodies, but one of those was “We Will Rock You”

I had no idea as a kid that the real words were not:

We will, we will rock you,
sock you, pick you up and drop you

An Atlanta variation, based on the “tomahawk chop” done at Braves games was

we will, we will rock
stop you, tomahawk chop you

Sherman records two versions going around in the early 90s from New York to Louisiana:

We will, we will you know what
kick your butt
all the way to pizza hutt
While you’re there, comb your hair
then we’ll take your underwear

That was the NY version. Down in Louisiana, it went:

We will, we will
kick your butt
to pizza hutt
comb your hair
comb your hair
and don’t forget your underwear
is it black? it is blue?
oh my gosh, it’s full of poo!

    between about 2003 to 2005 in Seattle, Washington, I have heard the following all together, but sometimes separately;

    We will, we will, rock you
    Sock you
    pick you up and drop you
    and flush you down the toilet
    and hope that you enjoy it
    and turn you into a pear
    in your underwear
    and make you kiss a bear
    and sting you with a bee
    in your own pee
    and kick your butt
    all the way to pizza hut

    And then in 2012, my brother started singing around the house "Throw you in a dungeon and lock you"

    Back in 3rd grade (so like mid 2000s) this was the version we sang:
    "We will we will rock you
    sock you
    pick you up and drop you
    flush you down the toilet
    hope you enjoy it
    suck your toe
    all the way to Mexico"

    One variation I remember was the same as the first one listed on the page,

    We will, we will rock you,
    sock you, pick you up and drop you

    but with “flush you down the toilet, hope that you enjoy it” added at the end.

    my favorite one is the YGOTAS parody

    kaiba: yugi you’re a fool
    winning big duels
    buddy i’m gonna screw the rules!
    you got mud on your face
    big disgrace
    seto kaiba’s gonna put you back in your place

    saying we’ll play we’ll play card games

    yugi:kaiba you’re a man
    you’ve got no fans
    beat me if you can
    try to summon your blue dragon
    it’s gonna end just the same
    king of games
    then somebody’s gonna put me in the hall of fame

    saying we’ll play, we’ll play card games!

    We always say this:

    We will we will
    You know what
    Boo boo butt
    All the way to Pizza Hut
    When we’re there
    Flip your hair
    And I’ll pull down your pants and show your underwear
    Are they red? Are they blue?
    Oh my owl they’re full of poop!
    We will we will
    Flush you down the toilet, hope that you enjoy it!

    Very funny and full of bathroom talk. We used to shout this out loud on the playground on the basketball court during basketball games. While we were bouncing and throwing the ball, we would shout out the song. One time, we decided to cover the basketball with 2 pairs of underpants, and we wrote a haiku about owls on the hoop! Very funny.

    I heard the NY version growing up in Harlem during the mid 1990s. Of course, I knew the actual song, too. My friend, Liz knew another Queen parody from an anti-Barney newsgroup.

    “All we hear is Barney gaga, Barney googoo…”

    We will, we will
    Rock you, sock you, pick you up and drop you
    Bag you, grab you, pick you up and stab you
    Flush you down the toilet, see if you enjoy it
    Stick a pin up your butt, all the way to Pizza Hut
    If you dare, I’ll cut your hair, and shove it down your underwear.

    Minnesota version
