We Will Rock You Singalong & Lightshow for Chicago and Beyond!

Stomp stomp clap with as many people as possible this Friday night! This song has it all: stomping & clapping, great lyrics, air guitar, and in the end, declaring yourself a champion. We’re going to kick things off with the National Anthem!

Plus, grab a flash light, laser lights, your phone, lighter, or flash your home lights on/off to the beat of the song. We’ll make it a spectacle for everyone to see! The Willis Tower, Hancock Building, Navy Pier and Prudential Building all agreed to change their lights to red, white and blue to support this and make a spectacle!

We want to use this to honor all the people that are on the frontlines of fighting the Coronavirus pandemic like health workers, restaurant staff, grocery workers, and everyone else keeping society moving. This is also a great way to unite the city in something positive and fun! Just remember to be mindful of effective social distancing especially if you’re in close proximity to others in condos and apartments!

The Drive will start the show right at 8pm so tune in and join us. Stream it here: https://bit.ly/3ahN0yO

**If you’d like to be included in The Drive’s recap video, send The Drive a personal message with your video so we can download it!

LYRICS:

NATIONAL ANTHEM
Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming.
Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

WE WILL ROCK YOU
(Stomp Stomp Clap)
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

(Air guitar solo)

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS
I’ve paid my dues
Time after time
I’ve done my sentence
But committed no crime

And bad mistakes
I’ve made a few
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I’ve come through

We are the champions, my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions of the world

I’ve taken my bows
And my curtain calls
You brought me fame and fortune and everything that goes with it
I thank you all

But it’s been no bed of roses
No pleasure cruise
I consider it a challenge before the whole human race
And I ain’t gonna lose

We are the champions, my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions of the world

We are the champions, my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting ’til the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions
