"We Will Rock You" as written by and Brian Harold May....
Buddy you're a boy make a big noise
Playin' in the street gonna be a big man some day
You got mud on yo' face
You big disgrace
Kickin' your can all over the place
Singin'

We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you

Buddy you're a young man hard man
Shouting in the street gonna take on the world some day
You got blood on yo' face
You big disgrace
Wavin' your banner all over the place

We will we will rock you
Sing it
We will we will rock you

Buddy you're an old man poor man
Pleadin' with your eyes gonna make
You some peace some day
You got mud on your face
Big disgrace
Somebody betta put you back into your place

We will we will rock you
Sing it
We will we will rock you
Everybody
We will we will rock you
We will we will rock you
Alright

    General CommentHey, this is my first post here, I'm surprised to see that people seem to be confused about this song, for me the meaning is clear. Ok the way I always thought of this song is that it is about a Revolution.

    Freddy Mercury is the Voice of the Ruler (a King or Dictator or something) and he is speaking to a crowd of Protestors (Revolutionaries), He's trying to bring them down, saying things you're a "big disgrace". The People respond with just shouting "We Will Rock You!", meaning We Will Bring you down or We Will Overthrow you!

    "Waving your banner all over the place" Clearly the crowd is carrying Revolutionary banners.

    "Buddy you're an old man poor man
    Pleading with your eyes gonna make you some peace some day
    You got mud on your face
    You big disgrace
    Somebody better put you back into your place"

    This bit shows this clearly, the poor people are rising up and their ruler says get back into your place. i.e. I'm in charge you're just a lowly peasant.

    I assume that in the end the people storm the Ruler's palace and overthrow him.
    To me this is defiantly an anti-authority song, I don't know if my interpretation is 100% correct but that's the way I've always imagined this song.
