Buddy, you're a boy, make a big noise
Playing in the street, gonna be a big man someday
You got mud on your face, you big disgrace
Kicking 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 someday
You got blood on your face, you big disgrace
Waving your banner all over the place

We will, we will rock you, sing it!
We will, we will rock you, yeah

Buddy, you're an old man, poor man
Pleading with your eyes, gonna get you some peace someday
You got mud on your face, big disgrace
Somebody better put you back into your place, do it!

We will, we will rock you, yeah, yeah, come on
We will, we will rock you, alright, louder!
We will, we will rock you, one more time
We will, we will rock you
Yeah

    General Comment5/11/05 Hi, I'm 52, which gives you an idea of the generation that I grew up in (Beatles, Stones, etc.) I LOVE this song followed by Champions, but I really don't understand the lyrics. Who is stomping whom? Are those with mud on their faces, at different ages, different generations (in one time frame? or at different time frames, meaning the same boy, man and old man???), stomping, fighting our society? Or, is Queen telling us that "they," the men represented in the lyrics, deserve to be stomped? If so, exactly WHY? And why is this song followed by The Champions? Did Queen mean that those who thought that the boy, man, old man in We Will Stomp You, to be annhiliated, socially, then would be "stomped" out by the champions of the world? Please enlighten me. I always blast this song and The Champions, but am confused as to its true meaning... Thoughts from the gallery???
